As an Oxfam America Sisters on the Planet Ambassador, musician Thao Nguyen has signed on to help spread the word about the consequences of climate change for poor women around the world.  She also serves as an ambassador of sorts for Oxfam America itself, blogging for us and telling fans and friends about our work fighting poverty and injustice worldwide.

As she has several times before, Thao’s met the challenge again in a big way. Starting today, Thao and her friend Dianna Agron (“Quinn” on the hit TV show, Glee) have given Oxfam America supporters an exclusive look at the world premiere video for “Body” by Thao With the Get Down Stay Down.

“Body” was directed by Dianna, and in the prelude to the video (created exclusively for Oxfam), Thao and Dianna talk about how the collaboration came about, the challenges of international web-chatting, and Thao’s work with Oxfam on behalf of the world’s poorest women.

It’s their hope, and ours, that fans of Thao and Dianna and their various projects will visit Oxfam’s website, enjoy the video, and take action with us while they are there. To check it out, go to www.oxfamamerica.org/thao.
