Take the Pledge

A central part of the Walk to a Better World campaign is an online pledge calling on fellow Australians to donate 1% of their annual income towards poverty alleviation.

The pledge is an important way to show your support for a world without poverty. It enables aid organisations to have a regular stream of donations coming in to help with their forward planning, to best use the money that is donated. Living in an affluent country, such as Australia, where as a median we are the wealthiest country in the world, we should be able to give 1% of our annual incomes to the world’s poor to help end extreme poverty. If we get into the habit of giving at least 1% and stay connected with where our money is going we will be able to see how we are making a fair world for all.
