"November 24th this year marks the
10th anniversary of the unanimous, all-party resolution to
end child poverty; yet 1 in 5 children in Canada still lives
in poverty. That's greater than the 1 in 7 children who was
poor in 1989. Many children also lack quality child care
services, and affordable, secure housing. Meanwhile, many
parents cannot find jobs that sustain their families above
the poverty line." (Campaign 2000 ).
The postcards have all been created by young people who
are a part of the Sharing Resources 2000 program. Sharing
Resources 2000 is a project of the Students Commission, the
Millennium Bureau, and Optimist Clubs. The program's goal is
to bring 2000 youth from across Canada together to develop
and implement community projects that work to eradicate
child poverty, by the year 2000
