People Take Action Against Poverty By Buying Ribbons From Large Ribbon Manufacturing Corporation

People everywhere have begun wearing ribbons to honor and remember the 22,000 children that die every day as a result of poverty.

“It sends a clear message to these children, a message that says ‘we will remember you’, they may have died of totally preventable causes but at least we won't forget them!” said one ribbon wearing Australian.

Ribbons for action, a for profit ribbon production company, in a press release explained that ribbons for action is designed to raise awareness of needless deaths in the world and make people feel better about themselves while actually doing as little as possible.

A representative for the company told us that since the ribbons for action campaign had begun a week ago the company had registered profits in excess of 35 million dollars and expected to reach a profit total of 280 million by the end of the month.

Asked if any of the funds would be used to fight poverty the representative snorted derisively and shook his head. “If we used the money to fight poverty then we would in effect be shooting our own business in the foot, who would do that?”

Ribbons For Action plans to take its marketing global so that people around the world can feel better without actually doing anything of substance about the impoverished.
