U.S. policies have a huge impact on development and more successful development is crucial to U.S. goals. But development and other global challenges are often oddly missing in the U.S. political debate. Will President Bush mention development, poverty, or global prosperity in his 2006 State of the Union Address? How about trade, Africa, security, justice, HIV/AIDS? To help you keep track we prepared these handy printable CGD State of the Union BINGO cards. (PDF)
Although our annual CGD State of the Union BINGO night is already fully booked (sorry!), you can try this at home! Kids love it! Organize your own CGD State of the Union BINGO party. Or take the cards to your favorite local watering hole, or any other location where you can access a broadcast or podcast of this important event. (Note: We do not recommend playing while driving).
