Philippines: Blog Action Day 2008

Filipino bloggers participated in the Blog Action Day 2008. The chosen topic was poverty.


  • Great post, Thank you for sharing, I myself wrote about it here: and got a huge respond from readers and other bloggers. Would you please honor us and share your thoughts by leaving a comment on our post? I am trying to come up with something new tomorrow and I will include and encourage readers to visit your blog back so we can all unite to fight poverty.

  • This is a great idea for us Filipinos as we are aware that many of us are facing severe poverty.

    In fact, I was among those who suffered since I start working at the age of 10. I believe that family plays a big role in fighting poverty.

    If not for the people who treated me as a member of their family, I am sure that I am still suffering.

    I submitted an entry too – Family against Poverty: Blog Action Day 2008 and hope that it can help somehow.
