In My Name

I find this initiative pretty interesting:

Youtube with Oxfam, Save the children, CARE and other organizations, is launching this video channel on the web, called “In my name“, to influence world leaders about the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals. As Youtube states in its official blog:

“… through November 1, visit www.youtube.com/inmyname to upload a video stating your name, your home country, and your simple message to your government about the need to meet the MDGs. Be as creative, compelling, simple, or wordy as you like — this is your chance to join the video petition to end world hunger.

At the end of the program on November 1, a mash-up of the most powerful submissions from around the world will be broadcast directly to global leaders at the United Nations General Assembly, as proof that global citizens are holding them to their commitment to create a better world for everyone.”
