This is from one.org regarding the global AIDS and extreme Poverty crisis happening in the world right now. It is something that I love and wanted to share so you can be involved too. It is something doing so much good already and i am excited to see where it will go in years to come and how it will help people change the lives of other people. This isn't about being progressive or feeling good about your self because you are an activist. It is about loving the people of the world, feeding the poor and widows and children, healing the sick and dying. This one of their current actions. Please read it, read their website, think about it pray about and pray for it. Call if you feel you can.
Last Thursday, the Senate Budget Committee cut back funds to the President's plan to fight global AIDS and extreme poverty-but we still have a chance to make a difference!
Right now, two U.S. Senators are reaching across political divides and asking the Senate to add $566 million to fund critical AIDS, TB and malaria programs running around the world. Senators Rick Santorum, a Republican from Pennsylvania, and Dick Durbin, a Democrat from Illinois, have proposed an amendment to ensure America continues funding the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria.
Call 1-800-786-2663 TODAY and help make AIDS, TB and malaria history.
The Global Fund saves lives. Please call the two Senators from your state TODAY and ask them to support the Santorum-Durbin Amendment for global AIDS funding.
Call 1-800-786-2663 to be connected directly to your Senators and ask them to support the Santorum-Durbin Amendment.
Remember, AIDS kills 8,500 people every day, TB kills 5,000 and malaria kills over 3,000 in Africa alone-- every day. Together, we can help fight back against these killer diseases. Together, we could make a real difference for the world's poorest people.
The Global Fund saves lives, providing prevention, care and treatment for millions. It's an effective international effort and U.S. contributions even challenge other countries to do their share, with each U.S. dollar matched by two dollars from other donors.
These three preventable diseases kill 6 million people each yearbut together as ONE, we can help fight back and save lives around the world.
