Make Poverty History Concert

On Friday night, there were more than 15,000 people rocked to end global suffering at the Make Poverty History concert.

International superstars Bono and The Edge from U2 and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder had the crowd in raptures early as they teamed to play Neil Young's Rockin' in the Free World.

The concert was awesome, and the message of the importance of making poverty history was shared!
I believe the main message from this should be for the younger generation to step up and support this cause.

Tim Costello's passion and commitment to the cause was amazing. He said that his generation has had a go, but they have failed on the moral issue. They now pass the baton on to the younger generation to Make Poverty History.

All the young people out there, please be part of this, and get involved in contributing to make poverty history.

As I'm sure you know, Scripture has harsh words for people who speak words of consolation to those in need, but then don't do anything practical to help them. This is a great cause, and personally, I'd like to do more to support it.
