THIS IS URGENT
THIS IS IMPORTANT
We are so lucky……
On the 17th of September a group of Bloggers and Vloggers went to London for a conference at the London headquarters of Save The Children. Many of you will remember being asked earlier in the year to click and sign the No Child Is Born To Die petition, aimed at ensuring the right funding was given to children in less fortunate countries so that they were able to be given life-saving vaccinations.
Well, WE DID IT! Actually signing and passing this petition on, made the difference in saving millions of lives.
Please Help Again!
A huge problem in Africa is the chronic lack of health workers, trained professionals who can help families and children on a daily basis, educating, caring and saving lives.
The wonderful Christine Mosler (@ChristineMosler) and Liz Scarff from Save the Children will be attending the UN General Assembly in New York on Tuesday and they need help to pressure David Cameron to play his part in solving the health worker crisis.
They need 60,000 signatures to take with them, the total already received is 40,000+ – they need our help!
Please sign the petition, we can save lives!
If you don’t blog, you can help by signing, passing the link or this post on to your friends and contacts. If you do blog, see below for how YOU can make a difference.
Please sign the petition here NOW!
Why not take part in the challenge set by HelloItsGemma and Michelle from Mummy from the heart? They want (need) to see 100 posts of 100 words linked up here by Tuesday. If 100 bloggers write a post and encourage more signatures it will go a long way to obtaining those much-needed remaining 20,000 signatures! Let get our voices heard!
Write your 100 words about a great health professional you have encountered in your life. Add a link to the petition and either link or add in some information from Save the Children about the #Healthworkers campaign.
Link to bloggers and vloggers you know and encourage them to take part
Spread the news on Facebook, Twitter, any way you can. Let’s get our voices heard!
My 100 words:
My eldest was 4, she fell quite badly from some play equipment. She was unconscious, and needed urgent medical attention. We raced to the hospital and in A&E we were met by Martin.
I have never been so scared!
He was amazing, he seemed to take a handle on the situation immediately asking all of the right questions and preempting my thoughts and fears so unbelievably quickly!
He quickly accessed my daughter, then sat with us and explained what we could expect and told me it was natural to feel the way I was. I will never forget him, his kind words and help.
Thank you Martin.
Thank you for reading, thank you for signing…you will won’t you?
