    Anyone seen the TV commercial for this organization? It features who's who of famous people (like ALL of them), but i can't quite understand what it's purpose is. I think it might be some sort of petition, but I am unsure. Anyone have any ideas?

    Well since you apparently know the url, and you seem to have internet access, you could check out the site.

    One billion people live on less than one dollar a day.

    “WE BELIEVE that in the best American tradition of helping others help themselves, now is the time to join with other countries in a historic pact for compassion and justice to help the poorest people of the world overcome AIDS and extreme poverty. WE RECOGNIZE that a pact including such measures as fair trade, debt relief, fighting corruption and directing additional resources for basic needs – education, health, clean water, food, and care for orphans – would transform the futures and hopes of an entire generation in the poorest countries, at a cost equal to just one percent more of the US budget. WE COMMIT ourselves - one person, one voice, one vote at a time - to make a better, safer world for all.”

    That's a declaration - you can put your John Hancock on it at http://www.one.org/

    Fight poverty... buy our crappy plastic bracelet!

    While you're at it, pick up a live strong bracelet, a save the earth lapel pin, and a few of those "support our troops" magnets for your car.

    The sad thing about this is some people will look at this more as a fashion statement than the actual cause.

    I asked him but he didn't want to tell me what it was about.

    I'm sure you pointed out the dichotomy of that stance.
