Will you help us get an urgent message to the Chancellor, George Osborne, ahead of the UK Budget on 21st March?
This Budget is important in many ways, not just for those of us living here in the UK, but also for the world’s poorest, as the Chancellor sets out the Government’s spending plans for international development over the next year.
Please join me in writing a personalised letter to George Osborne, asking him to uphold the UK’s proud history of supporting those most in need, by keeping our promise on international aid.
Visit our letter action page to see what you could include in your letter, and please help us send a message to George Osborne that this would be the worst time to turn our backs on some of the poorest, already struggling to get by on a dollar a day.
This is a crucial moment in making sure the UK Government is still on track to spend just 0.7% of national income on international aid by 2013 – just a penny in every pound. You and I know this saves lives, and gives families a chance.
Let’s send a message to George Osborne ahead of the Budget, to make sure we can still be proud of the UK for leading the fight against extreme poverty on 21st March. Just click here to get all the information you need to write your letter.
Thank you for your support.
