  • (1888PressRelease) December 15, 2010 - As it gets closer and closer to the holidays 2 Million people just lost their unemployment benefits. Now what are they going to do? How are they going to feed their children?

    "I apply for at least two jobs a day," said Silvia Lewis, of Nashville, Tenn., who's also drained her 401(k) and most of her other savings. "The constant thing that I hear, and a lot of my friends are in the same boat, is that you're overqualified."

    JoAnn Sampson of Charlotte hears the same thing. A former cart driver at U.S. Airways, she and her husband are both facing the end of unemployment benefits, and she can't get so much as an entry-level job.

    "When you try to apply for retail or fast food, they say 'You're overqualified,' they say 'We don't pay that much money,' they say, 'You don't want this job,'" she said.

    Sampson counts her blessings: At least her two children, a teenager and a college student, are too old to expect much from Christmas this year.

    Shawn Slonsky's three children aren't expecting much either. The 44-year-old union electrician in northeast Ohio won't be able to afford presents or even a Christmas tree.

    His sons and daughter haven't bothered to send him holiday wish lists with the latest gizmos and gadgets.

    Things used to be different. Before work dried up, Slonsky earned about $100,000 a year and he and his wife lived in a three-bedroom house where deer meandered through the backyard. For Christmas, he bought his aspiring doctor daughter medical books, a guitar, a unicycle.

    Then he and his wife lost their jobs. Their house went into foreclosure and they had to move in with his 73-year-old father.

    Now, Slonsky is dreading the holidays as he tries to stretch his last unemployment check to cover child support, gas, groceries and utilities.

    "You don't even get in the frame of mind for Christmas when things are bad," he said. "It's hard to be in a jovial mood all the time when you've got this storm cloud hanging over your head."

    Poverty, really looking at the numbers seems like a hopeless battle that has been going on thousands of years. The numbers are really staggering! 15 more children will slip away in the next 60 seconds. Or just think that there are 2.2 Billion Children World wide and 1 Billion of them are living in poverty. (every second child)

    The U.S. Census Bureau Reported "The poverty rate increased for children younger than 18 (from 19.0 percent in 2008 to 20.7 percent in 2009) Similar to the patterns observed for the poverty rate in 2009, the number of people in poverty increased for children younger than 18 (14.1 million in 2008 to 15.5 million in 2009) " This is just in the U.S.! Isn't it time we did something about it?

    22,000 children die each day due to poverty. And they "die quietly in some of the poorest villages on earth, far removed from the scrutiny and the conscience of the world. Being meek and weak in life makes these dying multitudes even more invisible in death."

    Many would say that it's a battle that can not be won! But for a new found group they say this battle as almost being over. The founder of the group believes they found A way to end poverty.

    Not only do they say they have found a way to end poverty but they claim they have also found a way to give millions of people opportunities, a way to help the homeless and jobless turn their whole lives around and teach them how to make money with no money. A brand new way for millions upon millions of people to make money and be their own boss and help end poverty at the same time!

    This is the most innovative business I have ever seen and it's all about helping to end poverty. This business has came up with a way to raise Millions of dollars a month to fight poverty, a way to pay the members millions of dollars a month and found a way to teach those that are homeless, jobless and who felt hopeless how to make money and be their own boss and that there is still hope!

    This just proves that Sonia Johnson knew what she was talking about when she said "We must remember that one determined person can make a significant difference, and that a small group of determined people can change the course of history."

    I would have to say the poverty fighters are making history with this new concept and method of doing business and just goes to show you that there are still people who care out there! There is hope!
