I hope that Bill and Melinda Gates have convinced you that there is every reason that we should help the poor. I’ve only shown you snippets of what they each said in their 2014 Gates Foundation letter. You can read the 3 Myths That Block Progress for the Poor letter in its entirety at the Gates Foundation organization. (via Bill Gates Debunks 3 Myths That Block Progress for Poor)

I don’t know if it is coincidence, global warming or something else, but in recent years we seem to be having more natural disasters than ever before. And very often, we seem ill-equipped to deal with them. Here in the United States, Save the Children, for the 6th year in a row, has commissioned a state-by-state assessment of safety standards and preparedness in schools and child care centers to see how safe students would be during disasters.

There is a vicious cycle of poverty and lack of education in Sub-Saharan Africa. Parents can’t afford to send their children to school. Without an education, these children become poor adults and then can’t afford to get an education for their children. Opportunity International is working to raise funds to support an education finance initiative to help send children to school and hopes you will invest in one child’s education.

I recently attended a Webinar hosted by Unicef based on a new report, The State of the World’s Children 2013: Children With Disabilities. I learned more than I ever could have imagined from Cara Yar Khan, who represents Unicef in Haiti. After that discussion, Mark Engman walked us through The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), a treaty which the U.S. has been trying to ratify.

With the premiere of The Man of Steel movie, it is a great time to remind our kids that there are many ways to be a hero. On this 75th anniversary of the Man of Steel, DC Entertainment has partnered with the International Rescue Committee, Mercy Corps and Save the Children to help fund their efforts to fight hunger in the Horn of Africa. And if you know how sites like Indiegogo work, you know that you will get great Superman swag for your donations. (via Join Superman on Indiegogo to Fight Hunger and Be a Hero!)

I hope you have already seen and read the other articles I have written about WaterAid and the work that they do in helping to make sure that everyone in the world has access to safe water and sanitation. (see list below). WaterAid just recently launched a new campaign for this summer 2013 to reach 12,000 kids in 31 schools with 150 taps and 100 toilets in Madagascar.

As part of the Save the Children’s Nutrition Campaign, the Global Team of 200 is trying to get the word out about the importance of feeding kids healthy food. President Obama is meeting with World leaders at two G8 Summits in June and it is important that they take this issue up. One way you could help would be to tweet this: @whitehouse let’s make sure all kids get healthy food in their #next1000days so they can reach their full potential. #Nutrition4Growth (via Poor Nutrition Reduces Children’s Ability to Learn #SavetheChildren)

Why do I think that International Women’s Day is important? Because as far as women have come, we still have so far to go, especially in many areas of the world. Hopefully by recognizing women’s achievements we can show that we have the abilities to achieve anything we long to do, if we aren’t held back by misguided thinking.
