So I’ve been home from Rwanda for a fortnight. In all honesty I came back very angry with the world and more than a little shell shocked. I suppose that’s understandable whilst I sort it all out in my head.

If you haven’t done it already please visit the link and pledge a date. On your date you don’t need to do anything major it can be as simple as talking to a friend and asking them to sign up too. It won’t cost you any money, just simply a little bit of your time and it could make all the difference.
So far 4810 days have been named in support of the campaign which adds up to an astonishing 13 years!
Save the Children have also heard that the noise made with the launch of the campaign has really made the PM’s office sit up and take notice. Nothing official yet but it’s a good start!

(now go sign that petition and pledge your date!)
