Ready, Steady, Act on hunger!

Do you have one minute spare today? Well in this one minute you could in fact help to lead to a global transformation!

Just for today you could swap those minutes of procrastination, endless google searching and facebook browsing, for something that could have an impact on thousands of children’s lives.

All you have to do is click on this link and ask David Cameron to support the Charter to End Extreme Hunger. Yes it really is that simple.

Why take action?

So why should you spare this valuable minute I hear you ask. Well, the answer is just as simple.

Up to 750, 000 people face death from hunger in east Africa and millions more are at risk in the worst food crisis of the 21st century. But the truth is, this crisis was preventable.

We have the knowledge and ability to stop this kind of tragedy from happening again. That’s why Save the Children, along with 25 other NGOs including Oxfam, ONE and CAFOD, has released A Charter to End Extreme Hunger.

The Charter sets out actions governments and leaders should take to address the underlying cause of this crisis. We need David Cameron to sign up to this charter and urge other leaders to do the same.

Be an Action Man (or Woman)

Your great work doesn’t have to stop here. There are lots of other things you can do to help raise awareness of Charter to End Extreme Hunger.

1) Tweet or use your facebook status to share the Charter to End Extreme Hunger with your friends. Use the hashtag #66cities and this link to our petition http://bit.ly/xWfv9n

2) Tweet your MP and ask them to support the campaign.

3) E-mail your local radio station or newspaper and ask them to spread the word about this campaign in your area.

So, while you’re taking your lunch break, stopping for a coffee or waiting for that important e-mail, why not do something amazing today. To quote the wise words of Take That ‘It only takes a minute’.
