Breaking the cycle of poverty

John Legend wrote the song “Show Me” asking simple, honest questions about life, why there is so much suffering in the world, and what each of us can do about it. In the United States more than 16 million children – one in five – live in poverty. Globally there are more than 1.2 billion people living in extreme poverty, struggling to survive on $1.25/day or less. The Show Me Campaign takes its inspiration from the song and was launched to create lasting change on these issues. It works to break the cycle of poverty by supporting programs that help to provide every child with a quality education, spreading awareness about the issues, and inspiring citizens to take action.
