Support Martha by taking pictures of your lunch

BoingBoing has a very interesting story about Martha, a 9-year-old girl in a small town in Scotland. She started to take pictures of her school lunch and write comments about it. Suddenly, millions of people were followingeach day’s picture because the lunches were so terrible. She even started collecting money to build a kitchen for poor people in Malawi.

This is a perfect example of the power of blogs. Even a small girl can have a world-wide impact. The school where she goes is very supportive. But  the city council told her to stop taking pictures, then decided they were wrong about that.

If any students here at Showa are interested in posting articles for this blog, you too might do some good, and learn how to use the Internet for good things. Like Martha.

See me if you have a picture of a lunch you just ate.
