Once Again

I know we've talked about this all before, but I need to make sure you didn't forget to do it. Just click...sign...done. No money involved. Watch the video here. I get chills every time I watch it...but I am a pansy (Bubble Pop Electric, anyone?) when it comes to those things, anyway. Come on...you can do it...all your favorite people have already signed it.

By directing an additional ONE percent of the U.S. budget toward providing the most basic needs – and fighting the corruption that wastes precious resources –– we can help transform the futures and hopes of an entire generation in the poorest countries.

With an additional ONE percent of our budget:

•We can help prevent 10 million children from becoming AIDS orphans

•We can help get 104 million children into grade school.

•We can help provide fresh water to almost 900 million people around the globe.

•We can save almost 6.5 million children under 5 from dying of diseases that could be prevented with low-cost measures like vaccination or a well for clean water.

•We can build a better, safer world for all.
