Actor Akshay Kumar, who is leading Indian celebrity online support for global Action/2015, says the campaign is all about taking action to end poverty and inequality, and providing equal opportunities for all. The campaign, a global outreach initiative to address world-changing issues of climate change, poverty and inequality, saw an outpouring of solidarity from celebrities such as Akshay, who was the first person to tweet his support for the campaign, reaching out to social media users. “Action/2015 is not about impossible stunts, it’s about taking a plan and turning it into a reality, taking action by ending poverty, inequality and providing equal opportunities for every single person on this planet to secure a better future for all of us today and for our future generation. “Between the wealth on this planet and all the overpaid millionaires, if enough of us stand together and give what we can, we literally can end the pain and suffering in this world. That’s the kind of statistics I think people need to understand — this isn’t impossible, this is 100 percent doable,” Akshay told IANS. He is sure the “world can change”.
