STAND UP is a challenge to set an official Guinness World Record for the greatest number of people ever to Stand Up Against Poverty to achieve the Millennium Development Goals by 2015. On October 15 and 16, people across the world will stand up to remind world leaders of this promise. Join them to set the Guinness World Record for the most people standing up against poverty.
“All you have to do is locate a “Stand Up” kiosk and obtain a free wrist band. There are nearly a hundred Kiosks around the grid already, including in the central plaza of Midnight City. On October 15-16, click on the wrist band to assume the “stand up” pose and register yourself as a supporter of the Millennium Development Goals. Your participation will be recorded and included in the final count for the Guinness World Record.”
The Global Call to Action Against Poverty (GCAP) is a massive global coalition from more than 100 countries who use the symbol of the whiteband to enable concerned citizens to put pressure on world leaders and decision makers. The GCAP month of mobilization is on from September 16 to October 17. The White Band is the international symbol to show your support for an end to global poverty (buy it).
