Lend a Hand

Micah Challenge USA invites you to join in its  Lend a Hand campaign, which seeks to brings us back to the promise to reduce global poverty significantly by 2015.  

Micah Challenge is a global movement of thousands of individuals, families, churches, communities, organizations, and denominations that seeks seeks transformational change in society, through the active involvement of the church with the poor and against the injustices of poverty.

Here is a blurb about the campaign:
If the nations of the world did what they promised to do back in 2000 then half a billion people would be lifted out of poverty by 2015. We recognize that poverty will not be solved by governments, but that we as Christians have a special calling to love and serve the poor--This is why we are asking you to make a promise on 10.10.10 to Lend a Hand. We want to come together to commit ourselves to remembering the poor and living a life that helps bring them justice. We want to ask our leaders to do the same. And we want to pray, because we can't achieve anything as big as this without God's help.
