Let Us Ponder a Shocking Statistic

In John Pilger's book, Freedom Next Time, he writes:  "On September 11, 2001, while the world lamented the deaths of 2,974 innocent people in the United States, the UN Food and Agricultural Organisation reported that another daily mortality rate continued:  36,615 children had died from the effects of extreme poverty."

36,615.  A day.  Everyday.

What are you doing about it?

What am I?
