An easy way to give more girls like these access to life-saving malaria bed nets? Read on to find out!
The Global Fund, an organization we advocate pretty hard for at ONE, wants YOU to tell the world leaders meeting at the UN General Assembly (UNGA) later this month to deal a death blow to AIDS, TB and malaria. We’re really close to eliminating these three terrible (and totally preventable) diseases, but as The Global Fund says, we just need one “big push.”
To do this, they’re coordinating a massive social media blast through the use of Thunderclap, a service that will schedule their special message through your Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr account at a strategic time: September 24, right smack in the middle of UNGA week.
Their message reads: “We can #BeTheGeneration to defeat #AIDS #TB & #malaria. Are you in? http://thndr.it/15zAOXb.” This will be blasted on thousands of social media feeds around the world at the same time. How’s that for ONE voice?
I’ve already signed up for this action and shared it on my Twitter feed. I hope you can, too (it’s so crazy easy). And if you’re confused about how it works, leave a question in a comment and I’ll try to help you out!
