I’m a member of the BlogHer community, just incase you didn’t notice the ads on the right there. Ads aside, BlogHer is doing other great stuff, like BlogHers Act.
In short this means:
"BlogHers Act is a year-long initiative in which members of BlogHer,
both on BlogHer’s network and in our extended communities, will work to
make a measurable improvement in Global Health (as distinct from
BlogHer’s Election 2008 Voter Manifesto initiative focused on the
domestic issues of importance to Presidential candidates)."
As you can imagine global health is a huge issue, so they’re trying to narrow the focus on which to act in the coming year.
Below is a poll, or you can vote on the BlogHer website.
It’s hard to choose just one, but it looks like you can choose more than one.
The poll closes on midnight 25 August, so you’ve got about one week.
After the poll closes is organising and action time. All the information is here.
Update – The poll has now closed and maternal health has been chosen.
This is one of the great things about blogging, and connecting with other people, is the potential to do some good in this world.
