O is for OUTRAGE - postcard campaign

We are asking the US President to show the world that he is committed to the prevention and control of non-communicable diseases (NCDs). This topic is the subject of the UN's second summit on global health issues. Having President Obama attend will inspire other leaders to take this issue seriously because "we do not want the world to sleepwalk into a sick future that is avoidable" (Ann Keeling, IDF CEO).

SIGN ONE OF OUR POSTCARDS:

Insulin was discovered 90 years ago, why are children still dying from diabetes?
We need you to stop this from happening!
Generate your postcard
It is an outrage that 490 million people will have diabetes by 2030.
How can you allow this to happen? Generate your postcard
Why should accidents of geography decide whether you live or die from diabetes?

You can change this! Generate your postcard

CREATE YOUR OWN POSTCARD:
Write your own message Generate your postcard

The postcards will be printed and sent to President Obama on August 31st, make sure you submit yours before then!

WE DO NOT WANT THE WORLD TO SLEEPWALK INTO A SICK FUTURE THAT IS AVOIDABLE!
If we all join this battle, we as a group can make a difference.

outrage yes, its also an outrage that the US sends billions of dollars to under privileged countries every year and the fat kats scoop up the cash and it never gets where it needs to be. It is also an outrage that many in the this great country of ours do without medications and medical care and the congress gives themselves a raise. The US allows illegals to zap our resources to the point when one of us NEEDS help we cannot get it. IF the world would only do right none would suffer.
