Before you buy that $5.00 Lindor chocolate bunny remember that 1.2 billion people live on ONLY $1.75 per day every day. So, instead of buying chocolate this Easter, support our Live Below the Line Campaign and help us Make Poverty History....
Make Poverty History Canada is a Live #BelowtheLine partner. This May, thousands across the world are eating and drinking on $1.75/day for 5 days to support their poverty fighting efforts. Find out more here!

#BC Premier needs to heed the plight of poverty - Letters - Times Colonist http://t.co/7DWfd2X7dj

		

On November 24th 1989, Canada's House of Commons passed a unanimous all-party resolution to eliminate child poverty by the year 2000. Twenty years later, the House passed another unanimous motion to "develop an immediate plan to eliminate poverty in Canada for all".

This December, The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria is asking donor countries for a replenishment of $15 billion so that it can scale up life-saving programs around the world. Since 2002, the Global Fund has provided 4.2 million people with AIDS treatments, 9.7 million people with anti-tuberculosis treatments and distributed 310 million insecticide-treated nets for the prevention of malaria.

We are at a tipping point in the fight against AIDS, TB and malaria with the US, UK, and Australia, among others, all announcing increased funding to the Global Fund in advance of the pledging conference. But where is Canada’s pledge?
