Do you realize…

…a BILLION people around the world live on less that ONE dollar a day?

…more than 38 million people around the world are infected by HIV/AIDS? 25 million of them are in Africa alone.

…Increasing international assistance by an amount equal to just ONE percent of the U.S. budget will:

  • Prevent 10 million children from becoming AIDS orphans
  • Help get 104 million children into grade school
  • Provide water to almost 900 million people around the globe.
  • Save almost 6.5 million children under 5 from preventable deaths
  • Build a better, safer world for all.

(Information taken from the ONE site.)

You can help make a difference by visiting the site and signing the petition for America to keep the promises it made at last year’s G8 meeting. Go here for details.
