Belated Blog Action Day 2008: Poverty

October 15th was Blog Action Day and this year they have chosen as their theme poverty. I have only just realised today and was feeling a bit bad that I haven’t done my part. In recompense I thought I should link to some of the other in the blogosphere who have made an effort:

Mr Moo talks about his experiences of working with NGO's, prepare to get teary-eyed.

Sister Farhana at Sketched Soul reminds us how we can start small and begin to make a difference just by beginning. She also has a number of great projects on her site you can help with.

Sister Habayeb of A Learning Muslimah reminds us that poverty isn't just out there, sometimes it can be right here under our noses in the most affluent places in the world.

Sister Umm Layth of The Muslimah and her exhortation to begin at home by teaching our children about charity.

You can also visit Sister Aaminah's blog Writeous Sister Speaks for a fuller list of blogs participating.
