Book Description

Imagine ending poverty at home and around the globe in our own lifetimes. Imagine your actions combining with others; actions to make poverty history. With originality and imagination, this book invites us to look at our very ordinary days, from waking up in the morning to going to bed in the evening, and to begin to think about poverty in new and creative ways. Our Day to End Poverty is organized into 24 "hour/chapter" segments. Each chapter/hour of the day proposes a variety of fun and practical actions one can take to help overcome domestic and global poverty. The chapters are short and pithy, full of specific facts and a menu of alternative action steps. Each chapter connects with your day, from breakfast to bedtime, relatinng these steps to ending poverty to our daily routines. Some times a problem gets to be so big, we feel there is nothing we can do about it. Our Day to End Poverty reminds us that if we all do just a little, a lot can get done.

Author Biography - Shannon Daley-Harris

Jeffrey Keenan has spent most of his vocational journey working in the personal computer software industry, beginning in 1986 with Aldus Corporation, the desktop publishing company which developed PageMaker. Over the past 10 years, Jeff has held various management positions within Adobe Systems' Global Supply Chain Management team, including a two year expatriate assignment to establish Adobe's Asia-Pacific supply chain base in Singapore, and most recently as the GSCM team's Strategic Initiatives project manager, leading Adobe's supply chain social responsibility initiative . He has spent those same twenty years nurturing and developing his family and volunteering for a variety of community service organizations. After four years of exploring, global poverty issues, Jeff is putting his resources behind this book which he fully believes will "move the needle for billions of people whose lives are negatively impacted by the limited (or non-existent) life opportunities." Shannon Daley-Harris, free lance writer, editor, consultant, and mother, lives in Washington, D.C. Shannon has authored Welcome the Child: A Child Advocacy Guide for Churches with Kathleen Guy, A Child Advocate's Concordance to the Holy Bible, Congregations Stand for Healthy Children, Putting Our Faith into Action, Say That I'm a Child of God, and numerous other publications, articles, and devotional and study guides. Over the past sixteen years in staff and consulting capacities she has served The Children's Defense Fund, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the National Council of Churches, and other organizations addressing poverty, health care, and children's concerns. Prior to 1990 she taught children in Belfast, Northern Ireland and Trenton, N.J. Joy Anderson, President, and Jackie Vanderbrug, Managing Director, are with Criterion Consulting, a national firm that incubates and scales social ventures that make for a better world. Their work has shaped dozens of successful ventures ranging from health care initiatives for national church bodies at new collaborative models for local social service agencies. Their methodology and combined knowledge of the factors shaping the social sector and the breadth and depth of their relationships with current leadership, make them an invaluable resource for strategic endeavors that can reduce the prevalence of poverty today. Karen Speerstra, President, Sophia Serve, a coaching service to writers and publishers, is based in central Vermont. Author of Divine Sparks: Collected Wisdom of the Heart, and Earthshapers, and co-author with her son, Joel, of Hunab Ku: 77 Sacred Symbols to Balance Body and Spirit, after a career in book publishing, she now spends her time, coaching, reading, writing, editing, and gardening.
