Last week we kicked off our latest "See for yourself" recruitment:
Oxfam @oxfamgb Do your friends, family & colleagues want to see how £3 per month can change lives? Ask them to click here: http://bit.ly/MbKRSp Pls RT!
Ernie @spiderabc1 @oxfamgb Yes, three pound my way would be great ; )
Alyrene got the message:
Alyrene @AlyreneRosser Amazing opportunity from @oxfamgb http://bit.ly/MbKRSp See for yourself how much difference £3 a month makes to people living in poverty.
As ever, many of you have been happy shoppers, and it's been great hearing about the myriad ways people are donating to Oxfam too:

Duran Duran, Leo, and the Universe Hello! Some proceeds from my new book, "Duran Duran, Leo, and the Universe" will be going to Oxfam GB in gratitude to Duran Duran, the wonderful 80s band. Check it out at www.pinklestonebooks.com. Thanks for all you do, Oxfam GB!
Giveacar £441 is on its way to you because people have donated cars through Giveacar!!
And it's always great to get requests from people who want to help out Oxfam:
Emily Storey @emilynstorey So I'm moving to London in September. There much I can get involved in with @oxfamgb?

On a much more serious note, our own Emily Prior visited West Africa and was struck by the stories of hungry people there:
Emily Prior @prior_emily Can't stop thinking about Fatime Alkhider telling me she is just waiting to die. #Sahel2012 #chad #hunger @oxfamgb
Here's hoping Nick Clegg can help out at the Rio+20 conference in two weeks:
Sasha L Pratt @SashaPratt Just met our Dep Prime Minister and presented him with his #GROW badge so he doesn't forget our campaign for food justice! @Oxfam @oxfamgb
