Have you ever seen an image of poverty so powerful you just wanted to take a photo of it? Lots of people have been lucky enough to escape poverty but many are still trapped.  In fact, nearly 1 billion people still live in extreme poverty – which means they live on less than $1.25 dollars a day! Help us put an end to it. We have partnered with National Geographic’s Your Shot community to expose poverty. In your own photos, show us what poverty looks like to you, or how people are working to help themselves or others overcome it.

To take part, become a member of the Your Shot community and enter your photo. More on how to participate: http://wrld.bg/PyRU6
