Dear friend,

http://www.inmyname.com/

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.

Stand Up and Take Action brings together a global movement of people – from villages and cities, from rich and poor countries – who refuse to stay seated or silent in the face of poverty and broken promises to end it.

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

About reality

Also, thanx for signing my petitions, et al, please consider sharing them. Also, since Admin. of change.org aren't allowing me to invite people to do my actions lately and are switching my urls for my petitions so when I invite people off their site they can't get to the petition either (ergo 3 possible urls for each petition), here's a few of my latest actions; do as few or as many as you'd like (there are 3 linx for each petition because admin. switches between the 3 of them so people trying to sign the petition can‘t get to it): This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Haiti disaster anniversary, please, do what you can: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9033 This petition on change.org: Haiti disaster anniversary: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2?share_id=yIpWHEHxri&pe=pce http://uspoverty.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2 http://www.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2   This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Green, Indigenous, Native American, etc., actions: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9026 This petition on change.org: Green, Indigenous, Native American, acts: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous_native_american_acts?share_id=NHvTtQadfP&pe=pce http://uspoverty.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous,_native_american_acts http://www.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous,_native_american_acts   This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Art/Act: celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, holiday: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9024 This petition on change.org: Art/Act: celebrate Dr. M.L.
