please call your senator today!!

i have been shocked and awed to see that my former senator from pennsylvania, rick santorum has proposed a bill for critical aids, malaria & tb funding. i wrote senator santorum last year a very personal letter asking him as a man of faith to take action in this arena. i am literally in tears to see he has done so. i know that i cannot take the credit for this, but i am so glad that i added my voice to this cause, and it is truly making a difference.

YOU CAN ADD YOUR VOICE TOO!! i just received this from the ONE CAMPAIGN:
Yesterday, thousands of you called Capitol Hill, asking your Senators to keep critical AIDS, TB and malaria efforts running around the world. Today, we have a little more time to make our voices heard and keep up the positive pressure!

Please keep calling 1-800-786-2663 and ask your Senators to support the Santorum-Durbin Amendment for global AIDS funding.

Together, we could make a real difference for the world's poorest people. The Global Fund saves lives, providing prevention, care and treatment for millions. It’s an effective international effort and U.S. contributions even challenge other countries to do their share, with each U.S. dollar matched by two dollars from other donors.

If you haven't called yet, please call 1-800-786-2663 today to be connected directly to your Senators.
please call NOW!! they will connect you with your own senator - no need to look up names and numbers - just call!
