Make a Difference Today!

Did you see my post yesterday? I took a trip down to London to Save The Children HQ and spent the day with some wonderfully inspiring people. We all came away with the same thought. We NEED to do more, we WANT to do more, and you know what, we CAN do more! Michelle and Gemma came up with a great concept to help spread the word on the No Child Born to Die campaign and to hopefully increase signatures on the petition before this TUESDAY!!! They want us bloggers to write 100 posts of 100 words about a great healthcare professional we have encountered and to tell you a little about what Save The Children is doing and then pass this forward to keep the post going.

Save the Children

I was one of the lucky ones, and I like to think that in the future (hopefully) when Little Bean becomes a Mother, she will receive the same level of care as I did. But not everyone in the world is so fortunate; some women have to travel for miles to reach their nearest health centre. When their newborns need their vaccinations, the mothers can walk for days only to find that there are no vaccines left on arrival. You and I can make a difference in these mothers’ lives; I have already made my mark, I have signed the petition, and I will do everything I can to get others to do the same. We are hoping to achieve 60,000 signatures before Tuesday, yes, that’s right, this Tuesday, so you haven’t got long left; please don’t click off and think, I’ll do it later, I’ll do it tomorrow; chances are you won’t, you’ll forget about it. Do it NOW! Currently, the petition sits at approximately 42,000, so we have a long way to go, but we can do it together!

So first off – Let’s all sign the petition, 30 seconds work and a step closer.

  1. Then the challenge set by Gemma and Michelle is that we want (need) to see 100 posts of 100 words linked up here by Tuesday. If 100 bloggers each write a post about this and encourage more signatures that could make a massive dent in the 20,000 signature shortfall that we sit with right now!
    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 some information from Save the Children about the #Healthworkers campaign.
  2. Link to a number of other bloggers/ vloggers and ask them to do the same.
  3. Tweet about this on Facebook, mention it, make a remark on Google Plus, talk to your mum on the phone, and do whatever you can do to spread this to just a few more people. Please do it.
