Dear friend,

We are just three weeks away from a critical meeting of the G8 in Italy. With the global financial crisis hitting poor nations hard, leaders of the world’s 8 richest countries must live up to their promises to help the world’s poorest.

Take action to ‘Press the G8’ now>>

One hundred million more people are going to bed hungry as the financial crisis wreaks its havoc around the globe. That’s why we are asking you to apply pressure to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the other leaders of rich nations when they meet in Italy. When you sign the ‘Press the G8’ petition, you’ll be part of a global action against poverty.

Your message will be sent along with thousands of messages from people in Canada and around the world – a strong message that the leaders won’t be able to ignore.
Press the G8 now>>

The collective pressure count will be delivered to the G8 leaders at the meeting. Make Poverty History will have campaigners in Italy, letting you know what’s happening at the meetings and making sure the rich nations don’t forget about the increasing difficulties of the poorest nations.

Many thanks!

Dennis, Jennifer, Kelly, Bryan, Sarah and Eric.

PS: Please pass this message along to anyone you know who might sign on – the G8 leaders need to feel the pressure if they are to keep their promises to help out the world’s most vulnerable.

Two online articles on why this G8 meeting is so important and how little is being done to help the poorest are Banned Aid ( and Committed to Complacency (

We started a Get To .7 The Point group and are taking pictures of people posing for .7
I have them posted in a slideshow and am sending them to Make Poverty History. There is a tremendous amount of support here in Hamilton and surrounding areas to Make Poverty History and to Fix Our World. It is a great pleasure to meet so many inspiring people. I am so happy that you are participating in our Sept 27th event. You are such an inspiration, it is always a pleasure to see you.
Linda :)
