You Tube Fighting Poverty

TechCrunch reports that You Tube has announced an initiative to fight global poverty based on the United Nation's Millennium Development Goals.

Don Reisinger writes, "For its part, YouTube has launched a new channel on its site where users can upload a video stating their name, home country, and simple message to their respective government about the need to meet the poverty goals. The company will accept videos until November 1. Once that date has passed, YouTube will create a mash-up of the most powerful submissions from around the world and broadcast it directly to the United Nations General Assembly."

This sounds like a great school project. However, I wouldn't suggest using last names or city locations. Certainly don't identify the name of the school.
