Stand Up

It is a bit short on notice but I just want to encourage everyone to participate in the Stand Up campaign. I've been meaning to post about it since I first heard about the action. Look for Stand Up kiosks at Tete a Pied, Midnight City, and other locations. Click on the kiosk to get bracelet which you click on in order to be counted as a participant for the Guiness record. As the official sitte states:

"The purpose of the action is to raise awareness of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and to publicly demonstrate to policy makers the growing global support for the eradication of poverty."

The Millennium Development Goals are promises that various goverments have already made. Stand up is about reminding them about these promises. It's a really simple thing that takes just about a minute.

The second life website for stand up is :
