Although this refer to the United Kingdom there is much food for thought of Australia and the US in this program sponsored by Church Action on Poverty 2013, www.church-poverty.org.uk.
As you may be aware, next week is Poverty & Homelessness Action Week. People across the UK will join us in speaking out against the ‘blame game’ – the unjust stigma which is increasingly being attached to people in poverty by politicians and the media.
There’s a simple way you can take part in Action Week – follow our online ‘prayer calendar’. Each day of the week, we provide a video story, some background information, some pointers for reflection, and some ideas to help you take action for change.
It’s easy to subscribe to the calendar. Just sign up to receive emails from Action Week, or follow us on Twitter or Facebook, and we’ll send you a link to the materials each day next week.

PS It’s not just a prayer calendar. We hope the stories and ideas for action in the calendar will be useful even if you’re not Christian – do take a look!
