In just two weeks thousands of like-minded people around the world have taken part in in my name, and over 750,000 people have watched the in my name videos on YouTube.
So to build upon this fantastic online success, this weekend we’re joining Stand Up and Take Action, who are aiming to break the World Record for the largest coordinated movement of people in history: 43.7 million people. Breaking this huge record will amplify the clear message to governments to end poverty and inequality and meet and exceed the Millennium Development Goals.
Everyone who adds their support online to in my name during October 17-19 will count towards the World Record, but we’ve only got a 48 hour window.

Last year, over 43 million people Stood Up around the world to demand that world leaders keep their promises to end poverty and inequality and make progress towards the Millennium Development Goals. Join with us in this global moment of action:

Every day, 50,000 people die as a result of extreme poverty and the gap between rich and poor people is increasing. Nearly half the world’s population live in poverty, 70% of whom are women.
We have the power to change this.
Thanks for all you do,
Helena, for the in my name team
