Last year, President Barack Obama promised to support a UN initiative to cut down the world's poverty by fifty percent. The Millennium Development Goals, or MDGs, were outlined as eight different goals, that, if reached, would help eliminate half of world poverty. Some of these included creating employment, fighting disease, and tackling hunger.
If the MDGs are to be reached by the intended target of 2015, President Obama must act now. Millions of people living in poverty are counting on the UN to succeed in reaching these goals. We can't afford to wait any longer to give the people of the world the resources and assistance they need to live long, healthy, and happy lives. Sign the petition below asking President Obama to keep his promise in working toward eliminating poverty.
Dear President Obama,
Poverty in the world today is perhaps more serious than ever. And while I completely support your commitment to the Millennium Development Goals as outlined by the United Nations, it's going to take much more than just a verbal commitment to accomplish this hefty ambition..
The efforts to fight joblessness, combat disease, provide maternal care, and eliminate hunger are lofty goals that require full dedication. I am asking that you put together a plan that will outline the ways in which the Millennium Development Goals will be accomplished by the set target of 2015. The poverty-stricken of the world are counting on you.
Thank you for your time.
