Colin Farrell: Why I’m standing with ONE against energy poverty

MV5BMTg4NzM5NDk0MV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNzAzMTUxNw@@._V1_SY317_CR3,0,214,317_AL_Got any big plans for the next few weeks? Well, how about this:

You. Me. Moms. Pastors. Students. ONE members. All sending letters to our senators. And asking everyone we know to do it, too.

Why? To help Africa bring power to 50 million people for the very first time.

Sign up and start speaking out here.

You know what’s truly crazy? Seventy percent of people in sub-Saharan Africa live every single day without basic electricity. Is your wife about to give birth? Well, she may have to give birth by flashlight. Time to vaccinate your kids? Sorry. No working refrigerators to keep those vaccines cold.

This is terrifying. Don’t believe me? Believe the Africans who are saying again and again that this issue is a huge concern. So today, ONE is launching something new to try and help change this:

The Power Project. Sign up and set a goal of just how many letters you’ll get sent to the Senate. Then ask your friends and family to help you reach your goal – not with money, but their voices. It’s all online and super easy to do.

And think about it: let’s say 5,000 people sign up today. And they get just 10 friends to sponsor their day. That’s 50,000 voices asking Congress to do what’s right. Now that’s some really powerful noise.

Seems like a no-brainer to me. Sign up and help light the future for millions.

Can’t wait to see just how loud we can be.
