As you probably know, part of my desire to eat locally has to do with how our eating habits impact the world. Since I work for an international relief and development organization, I have been up close and personal with extreme poverty. That’s why I’m so excited about the 58 Initiative.
Live58.org is a place for you to connect with others in responding to that challenge. Your friends, your church or fellowship group, your class or business…together we are forming an unprecedented alliance of Christians, churches and poverty-fighting organizations to bring an end to extreme poverty.
The strategy is to connect thousands of churches, teams of people like you, with thousands of local projects around the world. The more people involved, the greater the impact because at 58:the power is in the numbers.
On October 13, 58: The Film will be premiering at several locations across the U.S. Check out this powerful trailer:
Because I work for one of the alliance members, I have seen a first cut of the video – it is AWESOME! I can’t wait to see it on the big screen.
It’s being shown in 50 different states, and since I have the best readers in the world, I’m sharing a super secret link where you can reserve your free tickets. The quantity is limited, so you’ll want to sign up right away.
