Small blog post, big difference
I am coming to this late, weird for me considering I'm the charity and campaigning queen. It just goes to show, better late than never.
This post is part of Save the Children’s awareness programme for its No Child Born to Die campaign.
In January, Save the Children launched its 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, pneumonia and measles. Save The Children is focusing on the provision of 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…to fully fund vaccines for every child in the world.
Today I ask that you join in, do your one small bit to make a massive difference
Please sign the petition and consider joining in the crafty meme – :
1. Ask you child/children to draw a picture of themselves either now or in the future.
2. Blog about it and include details of the campaign and the petition. But be quick! The petition closes on 29 May.
No child is born to die…every child is born to shine.
