Save the children petition

September 19, 2011

On Saturday a group of mummy bloggers attended a conference hosted by Save the children. Annoyingly I am going to London this week but not on Saturday so couldn’t attend. However, I’ve been tagged in Helloitsgemma and michelletwinmum s campaign to get 100 bloggers linked up with 100 word meme by Tuesday. 

You can sign the  Save The Children petition here. The aim is to get 60,000 signatures by Tuesday. The petition is to put an end to the health worker crisis in poorer countries. Children should not die through a lack of health workers. 

  1. Sign the petition! It only takes a minute
  2. Join in Helloitsgemma and Michelletwinmum’s blogging challenge and link up with them your 100 words. Encourage signatures and make a dent in the 20,000 needed. Write 100 words about a great health professional you have met. Add a link to the petition and follow #Healthworkerscampaign on twitter for more info.
  3. Link to a number of bloggers asking them to do the same.
  4. Spread the news, Twitter, Facebook, Google plus, anything.
My 100 words

I was lucky with medical care during my twin pregnancy. At some point during the first two months I got that metallic taste in my mouth, then I started being sick, when I ate, when I saw pictures of food, when I thought about food. I lost a stone in a week. In this country, hyperemesis is not serious. Within hours, I was on a drip and pumped full of anti-sickness drugs. I was miserable, but couldn’t help thinking what would have happened if I hadn’t had that care? How long can you go without eating? The thought scares me.
