No Child Born to Die

Last weekend I was lucky enough to attend Save the Children's blogging conference with sessions from leading bloggers, prominent You Tubers and special guests.
Although it was a child-friendly event mine are too young to sit through a whole day of grown-up talking. They enjoyed cake, fruit and a bit of cBeebies while I enjoyed Blogging 101: a roundtable discussion led by these expert bloggers:

Chris Mosler, http://christinemosler.wordpress.com Nickie O’Hara,  www.iamtypecast.com Kate Gunn - representing Netmums,  http://katetakes5.blogspot.com Jennifer Howze -  http://www.britmums.com, www.jenography.net Elinor Shields, Mumsnet - http://www.mumsnet.com/ Sarah Blakemore, Save the Children http://bornto.savethechildren.org.uk

“Health workers are critical to saving lives: they are the single most important element of any health service. Without them, no vaccine can be administered, no life-saving drugs prescribed, no family planning advice provided and no woman can be given expert care during childbirth.”

What can you do?

Take Action!

Share the petition with your friends on Facebook, Twitter and your blog if you have one.

That's it. Easy. Five minutes. Make a difference. Save the children.
