ONE International is a grassroots advocacy and campaigning organization that fights extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa, by raising public awareness and pressuring political leaders to support smart and effective policies and programs that are saving lives, helping to put kids in school and improving futures. Cofounded by Bono and other campaigners, ONE is nonpartisan and works closely with African activists and policy makers.
Their current campaign is this Petition, calling on World Leaders to urgently provide the full funding that the UN has identified as necessary to help people in the Horn of Africa and to keep their promises to deliver the long term solutions which could prevent crises like this happening again.
So far, ONE has achieved 96% of the goal of 160,000 signatures. I've added mine. Please will you add yours.
And as a further thank you, I'd like to invite you to watch 's Hangout Concert 3 on Saturday night. Daria is a great supporter of ONE International as well as a fine singer/songwriter, given to singing as long as a) there are people to listen and b) her voice holds out - the last Hangout Concert lasted Seven-and-a-half hours... So signing the ONE Petition is also a way to pay forward for getting a free concert ;-)
You'll be able to see this one via embedded youtube.live players either here on G+ or on shh... the 'f'word... or on youtube itself or at hangoutparty.com. You'll be able to share the player and/or the links on your own pages or blogs or sites so as to invite your friends along. And, if you're on G+, you could even get into Daria's own Hangout and chat with her between songs!
I'll post full links on Saturday in the run up to the concert and during it.
Lets enjoy some live music together and tip this Petition over it's target. They're only 4% away from it...
*edited because I accidentally published before I'd put the title or the links in... Need... more... sleep ;-)
