Weekly Spotlight: The ONE Campaign

The One campaign is a revolutionary movement of over 2.4 million people and over 100 non-profit, humanitarian and advocacy organizations; it is the largest anti-poverty campaign in history. With this coalition ONE is dedicated to raising awareness to fight global poverty, hunger and disease and raise monies in an effort to eradicate poverty and fight the global epidemic of AIDS. The ONE campaign believes that providing help to countries in need would transform an entire generation in the poorest countries at a cost that equals one percent of the U.S. budget.

ONE PERSON. ONE VOICE. ONE VOTE AT A TIME. is the ONE campaigns slogan, and the organization believes that each person that voices their concern will eventually lead to a better and safer world for all. The campaign does not ask for monetary donations, but a person's voice and vote.

This campaign absolutely amazes me because its reach is outstanding. The simple fact that the campaign brought over 100 non-profit groups together to work simultaneously to fight for a common cause is ground breaking and should be an example for other causes to work toward.
