The One Campaign Asks, ‘Why Bother?’

posted by Jennifer E. Jones

One of The Inspiration Report‘s many missions is highlighting organizations and individuals that are making the world a better place. One such organization is the ONE Campaign that helps fight poverty and preventable disease in the U.S. and abroad. You might remember their star-studded public service announcements from a few years ago.

Now they have a new campaign entitled “Why Bother?” that showcases how you can make a difference in the lives of millions of children in five years.

For more information on what you can do, visit the ONE campaign online.

    Why bother? Because it’s worth it, because there are results, because people matter. This is the core message of ONE Campaign’s video. Cofounded by U2’s frontman Bono, ONE focuses on urging people to become more aware of poverty-related issues. They believe that if they can increase people’s awareness about the issues then they would have the collective power to urge the political leaders to do something to solve the issues. It is not as easy as asking for people’s monetary donation because ONE’s method would expectedly lead to vague and not so immediate results. However, I believe it’s all worth it because one’s man awareness and genuine concern can do much more than a millionaire’s cash donation. A single man can start a ripple effect broadening the impact of the information he carries and shares.

    Why bother? Because we have to. We are all human beings and we have a collective experience. I feel and so do you and so do those people suffering from extreme poverty. We do not have to be in the same continent, belong in the same religion, or have the same skin color to feel what they feel. We can and we will feel it, and we are capable of doing something about it. We just need to wake up. I salute this site for spreading information about the ONE Campaign and I appreciate all the other sites who are doing the same thing. There’s this inspirational blog, http://www.caare101.org and it’s worth mentioning as well. It provides readers with helpful articles about leadership, organization and business.

I’ve heard people say, “How do I get over something if it still hurts?” And yes, forgiveness is key, whether it’s aimed towards yourself or someone else. However, it’s not really the main issue. What people really want to know is, “How do I deal with the pain?” The problem with pain
