My friend Louise is trying to play an important part in the White Band Day 2 for Make Poverty History.
The G8 summit has not done everything it could have to help the third world debt. There is still a lot more to be achieved for its 3 main aims:
1) for fair trade and justice.
2) for more and better aid.
3) for cancelling the debt.
Louise's idea is to get as many people as possible to donate whatever they can, as well as send us their dream for the future. It can be anything – personal or general – and will be written on a hand, which will be stuck up on a huge white banner. The idea is to have loads of hands from all ethnic backgrounds on one white banner (she's arty!) to symbolise everyone making this particular dream come true.
If you would like to help, leave a comment here and I will organise a letter explaining everything, and a form for your dream and donation to be sent to you. My MSN address is in my user info bit, so if I have no contact details for you, please email them to me.
We aim to have this banner up and completed in time for September 10th (White Band Day 2), so replies are needed ASAP.
