Blog Action Day

Today is Blog Action Day! Blogs around the world are focusing on eliminating poverty. So, as I continue to "draw on the utopic...," I'd like to introduce an interesting organization that makes small grants to entrepreneurs to help lift them out of poverty, it is called Kiva. You can join a team and together your contributions add up to support small businesses, like cafes and seamtresses and bakeries. The name of the team I'm going to join is Team Obama!

Closer to home is the Robin Hood Foundation and they specifically target poverty in New York City. The Robin Hood Foundation does some amazing things, please visit their site. Grant fights poverty by donating the contents of one of his piggy banks (he has 3; one to keep, one to spend and one to give to charity) to The Neediest Cases fund. You too can give, thanks!
