Dear LIVE 8 supporter,

Last year you pushed G8 leaders to make big commitments, including debt cancellation, and an extra $50 billion in aid every year for the world’s poorest people. If delivered, these steps could help to end the extreme poverty in Africa that kills 30,000 men women and children every day. All of these deaths are avoidable.

One year on, we will be watching the G8 leaders to see if the promises they made are being kept.

Thanks to you, Africa is on the agenda at this year’s G8 summit in St. Petersburg. Because you raised your voice, poverty can’t be ignored. But we want to see action, not just words from the G8 leaders. We need concrete, properly funded plans to make the G8 promises on health and education a reality. Promises alone won’t save lives.

Thousands of you took action ahead of the G8 Finance Ministers meeting earlier this month. Because of you, the ministers reaffirmed their commitments to education for all and supporting vaccine development for diseases that affect the poorest people in the world.

Now we need their bosses, the G8 leaders, to go much further. They need to know that we have not forgotten what they promised.

Click here to send a post-it note straight to St. Petersburg to remind the G8 leaders of their commitments, and to leave them in no doubt that we are watching. Let’s make promises happen.

Thank you,

The LIVE 8 Team.
