This evening and early morning some of us were able to see a passionate and genuine performance by Kanye West. The concert was well received and we were able to learn more about a great organization called the ONE campaign.
Here's part of the ONE campaign's mission, but I encourage you to take a look at their website.
ONE is Americans of all beliefs and every walk of life - united as ONE - to help make poverty history. We are a campaign of over 2.4 million people and growing from all 50 states and over 100 of America's most well-known and respected non-profit, advocacy and humanitarian organizations. As ONE, we are raising public awareness about the issues of global poverty, hunger, disease and efforts to fight such problems in the world's poorest countries. As ONE, we are asking our leaders to do more to fight the emergency of global AIDS and extreme poverty. ONE believes that allocating more of the U.S. budget toward providing basic needs like health, education, clean water and food would transform the futures and hopes of an entire generation in the world's poorest countries.
Here's a photo from the event (sorry for the quality, I took it with my blackberry):
