    Room To Read http://www.roomtoread.org/Page.aspx?pid=209 Today, there are more than 770 million illiterate people in the world, over 300 million children who are not enrolled in school, and hundreds of millions more lack access to books and libraries. Ninety-eight percent of these children live in developing countries, where extreme poverty prevents them from gaining an education. As members of a global community, we must recognize that illiteracy is a major hurdle in improving the quality of life around the globe. Room to Read believes in the power of education and is proud to introduce our most ambitious initiative in our nine-year history – the Room to Dream Campaign. In Room to Read's first eight years of operation, we have helped more than 3.1 million children in the developing world by constructing schools, establishing libraries, providing long-term girls' scholarships and publishing new local language children's books.

    Every minute of every day, a child is born with HIV. We must stop this and we can. Treatment is now available to help a mother prevent the transmission of HIV to her child. All nations need to be united behind the goal to provide access to this treatment for every mother so that by 2015 virtually no child will be born with HIV. The Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria is the main channel for funds to achieve this breakthrough. If the Global Fund gets enough resources for the coming three years, the world can succeed in this goal. If the world cannot find the money necessary to finance the Global Fund, this and many other goals in global health will fail.

    Please sign this petition and join a global call to provide the funding necessary to achieve the goal of an HIV-free generation by 2015. http://bit.ly/ccQvpd

    http://www.marrow.org/ Thousands of patients hope for a bone marrow donor who can make their life-saving transplant possible. They depend on people like you. You have the power to save a life. Take the first step today.

    Most of these organizations have info on their websites on several ways you can help,so if you don't have money to make a donation,you can maybe volunteer your time at a local branch of one of them,or just post about them on your social networking sites to help raise awareness.Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this thread.
