Save The Children & “No Child Born to Die” Campaign
In January Save the Children launched it’s most ambitious campaign to date, No Child Born to Die. Every year 8 million children under five die from illnesses we know how to treat or prevent, such as diarrhoea and pneumonia. Isn’t that absolutely heartbreaking. Imagine if you will that was your child and just because of MONEY your child was to die. Horrrible.
Save The Children is focusing on providing vaccinations and healthcare workers. In June there is a meeting in London hosted by David Cameron and attended by other world leaders. Save The Children aims to make as much noise as possible to ensure the funding shortfall for vaccinations (4.7 billion) is met by all the donor countries. You can ablsolutely help wioth this by signing the Save the Children petition and then passing it onto your friends. Pls do this by May 29th.
We are lucky that our children have a future. This how my kids see themselves in the future. I feel blessed.
This is what you can do:
- Sign the Save the Children petition and then pass it onto your friends
and if you are a blogger
- Get your child to either draw or craft a self portrait of themselves now or in the future
- Write a blog post about it as soon as possible, including info about Save the Children and the petition. We want as many people linked up AND signed up the petition by Sunday 29th May 2011
- Tag 8 fellow blogger friends and link back to Maggie from RedTed Art
- And don’t forget to follow all the action in Mozambique on Twitter using the hastag #PassItOn.
