ONE Campaign in Full Swing as G8 Approaches

Today's post will be short, as many of us are off today celebrating our Independence Day and remembering those who made America the land of the free. Other countries are not as fortunate as the United States. In preparing for the upcoming G8 summit, leaders and organizers of the ONE Campaign are in high gear.

The ONE Campaign is a high-profile, celebrity-driven push to eradicate poverty and AIDS around the world, most immediately in Africa. However, involvement is not limited to celebrities only. Visit the ONE Campaign Web site to see how you can become involved. Web site visitors are encouraged to ask President Bush for his support at the upcoming G8 meeting for an unprecedented debt-aid-trade deal for the people in the poorest countries.

Live 8 concerts were held yesterday to increase pressure on G8 leaders. I've been in contact with Seth Wispelwey, organizing ONE fellow for the campaign in Texas and Oklahoma, and will keep you posted on opportunities to become involved in Houston. I appreciate him sending me a ONE white wristband to wear in support of the Campaign.

Be sure to check out the ONE Campaign Blog, too.
