Childhood poverty is not one of those things we like to think about, much less talk about. To get people talking about it, five men face 21,000 paintballs that represent the children that die from poverty each year.

An organization called Poverty Resolutions is the group responsible for this video, which at first seems frivolous. After they continue to be shot with paintball after paintball, I began to realize that this hurt is being felt on a much larger scale everyday by those effected by poverty.
