Last Thursday, the Senate Budget Committee cut back funds to the President's plan to fight global AIDS and extreme poverty-but we still have a chance to make a difference!


Right now, two U.S. Senators are reaching across political divides
and asking the Senate to add $566 million to fund critical AIDS, TB and malaria programs running around the world.   Senators Rick Santorum, a Republican from Pennsylvania, and Dick Durbin, a Democrat from Illinois, have proposed an amendment to ensure America continues funding the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria.


Call 1-800-786-2663 TODAY and help make AIDS, TB and malaria history.


The Global Fund saves lives. Please call the two Senators from your state TODAY and ask them to support the Santorum-Durbin Amendment for global AIDS funding.

Call 1-800-786-2663 to be connected directly to your Senators and ask them to support the Santorum-Durbin Amendment.

Remember, AIDS kills 8,500 people every day, TB kills 5,000 and malaria kills over 3,000 in Africa alone-- every day. Together, we can help fight back against these killer diseases.

Thank you,

The ONE Team
