Do You Know About the Millennium Development Goals ?

World leaders, in the year 2000, with the United Nations got together and made a plan to change the lives of millions of people living on less than $1 a day, suffering from extreme hunger, the violence of war, the pain of HIV/AIDS, malaria, lack of clean water and other profound hardships. 

 

The plan involves you and me, along with the rest of the world, and it's called the Millennium Development Goals, or MDGs.  The MDGs are 8 goals that if met, will make this world a better place, not just for those that are suffering, but for everyone. You can help reach the goals by taking simple actions and spreading the word.  

 

It's not hard and it can actually be fun! So why not get started today by clicking on the tab of the day and finding out what you can do. Tell your friends that you make a difference every day and they can too!
