Here is the information for the In My Name channel on YouTube.
We can be the generation that ends poverty.
In September 2000, at the United Nations Millennium Summit, world leaders agreed to the Millennium Development Goals, a set of time-bound and measurable goals for combating poverty, hunger, disease, illiteracy, environmental degradation and discrimination against women.
The deadline to achieve the MDGs is September 2015 — we must act now if we want to achieve these goals by their deadline.
Upload your video now to join the chorus with Will.i.am, John Legend, Scarlett Johansson and others around the world.
Your simple video message will join thousands of others in the call to end poverty in our lifetime.
PARTICIPATING NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS: Oxfam, GCAP, Save the Children, Comic Relief, Engender Health, March of Dimes, 1Sky, CARE, Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation, Global Campaign for Education, Concern, ONE Campaign.
