Thank you for speaking out in support of the rule to eliminate deadly blind zones behind vehicles. Help us get the Presidentís attention by sharing this to friends and family so they can lend their voices, too! Each day of delay puts more childrenís lives at risk.
thanks Cal

Signed. Now for my commercial plug ...

According to UNICEF (http://www.childinfo.org/mortality_underfive_dashboard.html), 7M children were subducted by U5M in 2011. If we stay on this course, 60,000,000+ children will be subducted by U5M (Under-5 Mortality) in the period 2010-2020.

If the top 1,226 Suppastars ("superstars", "billionaires", etc) out there donate an additional combined $3,000,000,000USD ($3B) per year, or $3B per individual flat-rate, this would staunch the flow of blood by preventing children from being subducted by U5M attributable to hunger and starvation.

According to Forbes List of Billionaires (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forbes_list_of_billionaires), the group's 2012 combined net worth was $4.6T ($4,600,000,000,000USD). $3B per year of $4.6T amounts to 0.065%. If you believe they can afford this, sign this petition and spread the word: "0.065%" If you believe they should be taxed by the government for this additional 0.065%, write to your local congresswoman or congressman and let them know.

And upon the Suppastar donating their share of (an additional) $3B USD to the United Nations World Food Programme (wfp.org) for the "0.065%" account, perhaps the WFP will be kind enough to arrange for Suppastar treatment at respective countries (e.g. China, India, Indonesia, South Sudan, Kenya, Ethiopia, et al).

Like so many petitions, it asks Canadians for their province and postal code but it rejects the postal code. Very frustrating.

signed, sent, this seems like such as easy fix and so important why wouldn't everyone support it.
