and yep, i joined back in october when i saw u2 play in Philadelphia. i was impressed to hear many people asking questions, and having discussions about the cause, and seeming truly interested in it.

so, whenever i see someone from my area walk by with a ONE band.. i hold up my arm with mine on and give them the peace sign, heh. a little unspoken thing there.

I joined back in May and people ask about it quite often. When I explain it to them, they seem very interested. It always makes me happy to have someone ask about it and then actually listen to what it's all about.

Most of you know that I have been an active volunteer for ONE since it was founded in May 2004.

Here is the website, vervex, please click on this link and learn more about ONE and the white band.

http://www.one.org


In Canada, the white band is available through MakePovertyHistory.

I wear the ring and respond to the One Campaign emails. I'm also looking to get involved in some other way, as a volunteer at an event or something!

I was honored to be able to represent Interference.com at the launch of the ONE Campaign in Philadelphia in May of 2004 and signed the original charter there... absolutely amazing.
My report from that day can be found here:

If you go here you can find out if there is already a local group of volunteers you can join: http://www.one.org/ActionLocal.html

I also recommend emailing the regional director personally and offering yourself up for whatever they have to offer. I was able to make meaningful contacts that way.

I joined a while ago, but I guess it's not really "official" because I don't have a writstband. How can I get one?

Should I like order one from the site?

I didn't realize you were 21, too

I joined the night I saw them live. As soon as we got settled with our seats I made a b-line for the table (the one that on the side of the East Igloo at Mellon Arena). I signed up, got a wristband and even signed the large white paper poster. I wear it pretty regularly.
