How about we all proclaim an International Day of Prosperity!
On December 22, 1992, resolution 47/196 was adopted by the United Nations. This resolution can trace its beginning to October 17, 1987, when thousands gathered in Trocadéro, Paris where the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was signed to honor victims of violence, hunger, and end poverty.
They gathered to declare that poverty was a violation of human rights and that further action was needed. The resolution was adopted, and October 17th became International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
According to the 2022 GLOBAL MULTIDIMENSIONAL POVERTY INDEX (MPI) Even before the COVID-19 pandemic and the current cost-of-living crisis are accounted for, the data shows that 1.2 billion people in 111 developing countries live in acute multidimensional poverty. This is nearly double the number who are seen as poor when poverty is defined as living on less than $1.90 per day.
The United Nations Solution

Be Fit By Design Envisioning Prosperity for All
Our thoughts need to be in alignment with what we want instead of what we do not want. We have resolutions and great intentions.
Maybe poverty and homelessness could be obsolete if we simply take out the words eradicate poverty and hunger so there is nothing to eradicate or associate with. Erase all the negatives.
Think about being focused on accomplishing so much more by proclaiming an International Day of Prosperity!
