Bono has spearheaded this video along with other celebs that will be playing in cinemas around the world in the coming weeks – the focus is the draw our attention to how much power we have to end poverty on the planet. The organization – Making Poverty History – is a unified effort of relief agencies throughout the UK seeking to combine their collective audiences toward one simple task – ending economic injustice once and for all. Idealism? Maybe… but I suppose we have had enough cynicism to fill the ocean and a little romantic idealism unleashed might not be such a bad option at this point in history.

Nelson Mandela recently said ‘Poverty and obscene inequality are the terrible scourges of our times. Unforgivable in an age when the world boasts breathtaking advances in science, technology, industry and wealth. They have to rank alongside slavery and apartheid as social evils.’

Take time to go to the site or to one of the links on and get active – time to get busy livin’ or get busy dying’ as they say and we have had too much of the later these days…
