Help Children in Poverty and Get a Free T-Shirt

3 Apr

Starting yesterday, until Monday 9 April, Compassion are teaming up with Sevenly to help spread the word about Malaria. Sevenly exist to “harness the power of art and community to build sustainable awareness and funding movements that support charities in their efforts to change the world.”

Here are two ways you can support Compassion

Option 1 – If you sponsor a child with Compassion, between now and Monday 9 April – ending 9.59am PST, you will receive a free t-shirt from Sevenly. Please use this link for this offer.

Option 2 – if you buy a t-shirt from Sevenly, between now and Monday 9 April – ending 9.59am PST then $7 will be donated to give a life-saving Mosquito net to a child in Rwanda. Please use this link for the t-shirt.

A child dies of Malaria every 30 seconds. Compassions Malaria Intervention Fund intervenes by providing children in poverty with mosquito nets – now that’s worth sharing and supporting.

 

 

Malaria, TB and HIV/AIDS

14 Sep

The Global Fund are doing excellent work when it comes to HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria. Here is an excerpt from an email I received from them today. Please click on the link below and add your voice.

Today, we have an opportunity that is rare in human history: We can give the gift of health to future generations. By 2015, we can practically eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV and dramatically reduce the number of tuberculosis and malaria deaths worldwide. But we need to keep up the pace for change — otherwise, we risk losing millions more lives to these preventable diseases. That’s why I have signed an open letter asking for continued support from the United States’ leadership so that by 2015, millions of lives will be saved from AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. I’m not alone — incredible people like Morgan Freeman and Annie Lennox have also signed on and pledged to do what they can for this cause. And now, we are asking you to join us.

It begins with you. Read the open letter and become a co-signer now — it takes a minute and will make a great difference:
