Is It Mother's Day in Darfur, Yet?

For Mother's Day, I would like for you to donate $1 to the SaveDarfur Coalition. If you do not have the $1, please take the time to learn about this humanitarian crisis and educate others. This is genocide happenign in our lifetime. Do not stand by and later say "I didn't know."

10,000 to 15,000 DYING EACH MONTH
DEAD, DYING, DISPLACED: children, women,
men, elders, families, complete villages

Did you know that 2.5 million people have been driven from their homes in Darfur, Sudan? Each day, they face threats that are hard for us to even imagine, including rape, disease and starvation. These people need our help to put an end to the genocide and they need it NOW. Please join me in taking the first step to stopping the violence. Sign the Save Darfur Coalition's petition urging President Bush and UN Secretary-General Ban to take immediate steps to stop the killing.

The Save Darfur Coalition is urging the international community to prevent further killings, displacement and rape by deploying the UN peacekeeping force that has already been authorized, strengthening the understaffed African Union force that is already in Darfur, establishing a no-fly zone, increasing humanitarian aid, and ensuring access for delivery of food, medication and other essential supplies.

Hundreds of thousands of people around the world have responded to the suffering in Darfur by standing up and demanding that their governments take action to end the crisis. However, many individuals still have not heard about the genocide in Darfur.

To build the political will necessary to end the genocide it is imperative that more people learn about the security and humanitarian crisis in Darfur and find out how they can help end the genocide.

Okay - I will. It is heart breaking and yet I feel powerless to do anything about it. My money will have to be my voice.
