Australian Artists Lead International Coalition Against Child Poverty

August 01, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News , the new website of the international child poverty movement Worldview, launched earlier this week with a trio of Australian artists at the forefront.

Singer/songwriters Deb Fung and Amanda Baker both have their latest music videos featured on the site and also share their personal thoughts on child poverty issues. Baker's endorsement impressed the producers sufficiently that it was selected as the official welcome message.

Dancing On The Inside, a music video by Australian rock band Antiskeptic is featured as well, and has the additional honour of having the final thirty seconds re-edited as the promotional piece for the launch. According to site creator Stephen Jarnick "It was always our first choice. We looked at a lot of video footage and it was by far the most spectacular - and also a great fit with Worldview's edgier style." The promo video can be viewed on MySpace TV at

In addition to music videos, the website connects to Christian Children's Fund, Compassion, Plan, World Vision, and other international child poverty organizations including Unicef and Make Poverty History. Visitors to the site can also take an animated virtual tour to learn how child sponsorship works, or play the United Nations World Food Program's educational video game Food Force. (The World Food Program uses Worldview's virtual tour as a teacher's resource for the game.)

Worldview is a volunteer movement based in Canada that teaches how child sponsorship works and encourages radical generosity. It is not a charity and it doesn't accept donations.
