Charities doing good

The economic outlook is not looking good, but if you are reading this right now, chances are that you have a roof over your head and probably something to eat and fresh water from the tap. Suffice to say, this is more than many others have around the world. Please take a moment to check out the charities that 10 Links a Day supports. If you cannot donate money, please find time to do something positive in your community. It goes a long way!

Today's 10 Links a Day: Charities Seeking your Support

As ONE, we are raising public awareness about the issues of global poverty, hunger, disease and efforts to fight such problems in the world's poorest countries. As ONE, we are asking our leaders to do more to fight the emergency of global AIDS and extreme poverty.
