It will just take a second to click :)

I always get these emails from ONE. I always sign the petition and email it off to a few people, but I've decided to also post a few on here! It just takes a second; all you have to do is click the link to make a difference! :)

Original email:

Today, as we mark World AIDS Day, I wanted to share something that isn't often said—good news about real, tangible, life-saving progress. Today, 6,500 fewer children will die of diseases like AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria or pneumonia than just 5 years ago.

It's staggering to me that with the right support we can make such a big difference, and it goes to show what can be achieved when people call for governments to act. However there is more to do—in fact, despite these amazing advances, over 1,000 children are born every day with HIV. It's a heart breaking fact, yet what makes it even harder to swallow is that this can easily be prevented through a simple treatment given to women during pregnancy.

Please click here to sign our petition asking leaders to finish the job and make sure no child is born with HIV:

Dear World Leaders,
By 2015 we can make sure no child is born with HIV. It all starts with an agreement at the United Nations to combat extreme poverty, with every country doing their bit. Please do yours. Thank You.

Help ensure that mothers get the medicines they need so that by 2015 no child is born with HIV. It sounds ambitious, but we know what progress can be made in just 5 years, so please join me today.

Together as ONE we can make a difference.


Roxane Philson,
