Svaha Spirit Series: The ONE Campaign ~

ONE is a grassroots advocacy and campaigning organization that fights extreme poverty and preventable disease by raising public awareness. ONE and its partners, have played an important role in persuading governments to support effective programs and policies that are making a measurable difference in fighting extreme poverty and disease.

As a result of those programs, today nearly 4 million Africans have access to life-saving AIDS medication, up from only 50,000 people in 2002. Malaria deaths have been cut in half in countries across Africa in less than 2 years and 46.5 million more children are now going to school. Children are precious and each and every child deserves to have fresh water, food, a warm place to sleep and an education.

My favourite musician of all time co-founded ONE and (RED) which I also support! 🙂

(RED) The Lazarus Effect

Last night on Facebook, (RED)The Lazarus Effect’ film Directed by Lance Bangs, Executive Producer Spike Jonze, streamed The Red Carpet live from the screening at MoMA in NY. You can see the film’s Premiere on May 24 th on HBO, YouTube & Channel 4. I originally saw the campaign commercial on Homorazzi.com (LOVE IT) a new site I found while doing research for another post. (Friday’s) Sooo many great things to write about it’s hard to pick!

I keep getting reminded why Bono is my all time favourite musician, here is another reason! Bono, Penelope Cruz, Hugh Jackman, Don Cheadle, Gwen Stefani, Gabourey Sidibe, Jane Lynch, Dakota Fanning, Orlando Bloom, Lucy Liu, Claire Daines, and so many more friends of (RED) show the power of what 40 cents can buy.

The Lazarus Effect Campaign: 40 cents = 2 lifesaving pills … With the help of 2 antiretroviral (ARV) pills that cost around 40 cents a day, a person with HIV can transform their life in as few as 40 days. Doctors call it “The Lazarus Effect.”

I buy (RED) whenever given the choice to do so. It takes the same effort to buy a Starbucks (RED) gift card as it does any other, so why not! My kids Teacher gifts are (RED) Starbucks coffee cards. You’re not only supporting a great cause which is making positive change in the world, you’re teaching kids that a gift can have a life changing meaning behind it! Win/win!

Change is being made because of those who use their voices! You can use your consumer voice, by supporting (RED), Teacher gifts and Mother’s Day are just a few ways to help!

Do They Know it’s Christmas Time At All?

TracyThey’ve done it again!  Band Aid 20 has released the New version of “Do They Know it’s Christmas Time At All”, this year written by Bob Geldof and Midged Ure on Mercury Records.  Band Aid has a who’s who of contemporary British Rock, Pop, R & B and Urban Music.   Bono, Paul McCartney, Keane, The Sugarbabes, Dido, Robbie Williams, Chris Martin, Snow Patrol, to name a few have contributed to this wonderful arrangement!  You can see the list in it’s entirety if you go to the Band Aid20 link.  There is the record but also a DVD which is a “behind the scenes” look at the making of the charity single.

50 % of Africans are children and most of these children go to bed each night hungry which is intolerable.  It’s doesn’t matter what you give as long as you do.  Time, money, guidance, it all helps to make the world a better place!

(RED) Bono ~ Helping Change the World!

TracyChristmas is fast approaching!  Before we all get into the frenzy of the shopping, stop and think of how one of your gifts can help others somewhere in the world.  Choose companies who support programs such as (RED) so your gift can make a difference in someones life. (RED) is a simple idea that transforms our collective power as shoppers into a financial force that helps those affected by AIDS in Africa.  To date, over $135 million has been generated and 4 million people have been helped through Global Fund programs that (RED) supports.  When you choose to buy products from (RED) partner companies up to 50% of the profit goes towards eliminating AIDS in Africa.(RED)

Bono is my favorite musician without a doubt, not only because of his amazing talent, but because he is using his “ROCK STAR FAME” to change the world in which we live.  He is not just selling Melodies he has an Agenda we can all learn from.

Katy Perry is another (RED) Artist!

I joined (RED) and I hope you do too.  For more inspiring information check out the Website ~ (RED) ~
