Be Counted and be a part of the Guinness World Record. Join millions of others in calling on world leaders to honor their commitments to end extreme poverty by 2015 and achieve the Millennium Development Goals. You can take the online action right here on Change.org anytime between 9pm GMT on Oct. 16th and 9pm GMT on Oct. 17th and be counted towards a Guinness World Record for the most people to Stand Up and Speak Out for a cause.

How to be Counted:

1. Read the short pledge and physically STAND UP wherever you are:

I am standing now with millions around the world to show my commitment to the fight against extreme poverty and inequality. I am standing because I refuse to accept more excuses in a world where 50,000 people die every day as a result of extreme poverty and the gap between rich and poor is getting wider. I am standing to ask the world’s leaders to keep their promises to meet the Millennium Development Goals. Today, and every day, I will stand up and speak out against poverty.

2. Click 'Make this Committment,' enter your information, click 'Submit' and you will be counted for the Guinness World Record.

      It is not enough to say a million words but to do just one thing may bring the change the world has been waiting for.

      Could somebody explain to me how one fullfill this pledge before October 16 thru October 18.  Guinness only counts it if it happens during that time period.  The Stand Up Take Action site says for those planning real world events "Important, you have to come back on October 16-18 to be officially counted by Guiness World Records!" http://www.standagainstpoverty.org/node/8842 Everyone who has "completed the pledge" needs to come back on October 16.  If I got this wrong let me know.

      To anybody out there - the "Click here to share this action with friends outside the Change community" is a dead end. Somebody should fix that.
