Blog Action Day 2012 is finally here. In case you’re new to Blog Action Day, it’s an annual event when bloggers all over the world blog on the same theme for one day. This year’s theme is The Power of We.

At Heifer International, we’re big believers in The Power of We. In fact, we know it is only through the collective actions of individuals, families, small groups, communities, cooperatives, organizations, governments and other entities that Heifer will achieve our mission: ending global hunger and poverty while caring for the Earth.
Watch our video to learn more.
So how can you join us to become part of the We that will end hunger and poverty?
So far 1,419 bloggers from 97 countries are ready to fill the Web on this one day with their take on this year’s theme: The Power of We. You can keep up with the livestream on Cover-it-Live, which will feature content and comments from Blog Action Day 2012.
The sixth annual Blog Action Day, on October 15, is just three weeks away. We participated last year, and I’m excited to announce that Heifer International is an official NGO partner for 2012.
What is Blog Action Day? It’s a day when thousands of bloggers from all over the world blog on the same theme (water, climate change, poverty, food, etc.) from their own perspective. This year’s Blog Action Day theme is The Power of We.
How many of you are bloggers? If you haven’t already registered for Blog Action Day, I encourage you to take part and to share with us what you write. What does The Power of We mean to you, your work, your organization, your family? What does it mean to you as a Heifer supporter? It would be great to see what our Heifer Blog readers are interested in and how you interpret this year’s theme.
So here’s your to-do list:
Leave a comment below with a link to your blog so we know who you are
On October 15, send us a link to your Blog Action Day post, and we’ll share it in a special Heifer Blog Action Day post (that’s in addition to being listed on the Blog Action Day website)
I hope you will participate and let us know about it. We participate because it’s yet another way to amplify our voices here at Heifer International. The Power of We really resonates for us, as our work is so much about collective action. Our participant families, communities, partner organizations and supporters are the WE required to end hunger and poverty.
