From ONE.org _ Mother's Day

|

Every year, 10 million mothers lose a child under the age of 5 to a completely preventable disease. This Mother's Day, you have an opportunity to give these mothers, and yours, a special gift.

Just this morning Congress introduced the U.S. Commitment to Global Child Survival Act. It will provide resources for simple and cost effective tools to save the lives of the 30,000 children who die each day from treatable infections, waterborne illness, malnutrition, and the half a million mothers who die from complication in childbirth.

1.

Today, you can honor mothers around the world by sending a letter to your members of Congress asking them to support the Global Child Survival Act.

2.

Then send a special ONE Mother's Day greeting to let mothers know you did this in their honor.

Sponsored by Representatives Betty McCollum (D-MN) and Christopher Shays (R-CT) and Senators Chris Dodd (D-CT) and Gordon Smith (R-OR), the act sets realistic and effective guidelines for child survival programs and quadruples funding for these programs over the next two years.

This bill doesn't just save lives; it empowers mothers to provide for their children so they can safely give their children the gift of life.

Write your member of Congress and encourage them to support the Global Child Survival Act and send a ONE Mother's Day card.

The scale of America's response to this great tragedy has been woefully inadequate, but we have the power to save lives if we take action today on behalf of mothers around the world.

Happy Mother's Day,

Susan McCue, ONE.org

Daniela disse...

Isto é uma crítica a mim mesma. Sempre fui daquelas que fala fala fala e tem feito muito pouco. Antigamente perdia horas na net a ver sites das org, de todo o tipo, e a assinar cenas e desde que vim pa fac pouco tenho feito. A falta de tempo pode não ser desculpa, mas é por causa dela que nunca mais fiz nada... e quando cada gesto é tão pouco, é mais necessário ainda.
