Your Pledge for the Children of Ethiopia
.
DROUGHT - RISING FOOD PRICES
.
Children are the most vulnerable to nutritional deficits and the first to suffer when there is a food shortage.
.
* 75,000 children under the age of five
live with severe acute malnutrition
.
* 25-50% of children with severe acute
malnutrition die without proper treatment
.
But there is hope for the children of Ethiopia.
UNICEF-supported therapeutic feeding programs have been set up...

leading to a significant drop in mortality rates for malnourished children.
.
What can you do?
Bring international attention to the plight of these children
and the benefits of the therapeutic feeding programs...
Pledge to get the story out in your community today.
.
How?
* Click on any of the highlighted linksto make your pledge
* Write a post on your blog or profile page about the drought in Ethiopia.
* Explain to your friends and family, book group or social club how malnourishment is affecting Ethiopian children.

* Send this pledge to five friends so they can keep spreading the word!
.
Many thanks for your pledge,
(and for not succumbing to apathy)

A computer program designed to save water for Australia's drought-stricken farmers has won a major international technology prize.

A team of four university students from Tasmania and Victoria developed the software and beat off competition from around the world to take out the Imagine Cup at the Musée du Louvre in Paris.

Sponsored by computer giant Microsoft, the competition involved more than 200,000 students from 100 countries.

Team SOAK (Smart Operational Agricultural ToolKit) from Australia impressed the judges with its unique software designed to help farmers monitor their water usage
