Kids are pinning their hopes on you. Let the pinning begin!
Calling Congress is one of the most powerful ways to use your voice for children. For every call a legislator receives, they know hundreds more of their constituents support our cause. With our easy to use “Connect to Congress” tool, you’ll be patched through to your legislator’s office.
It’s so easy to call Congress, a kid can do it!
Watch the video to see for yourself. (What’s more, the staffers who answer the phone are so nice. They’ll be happy to hear from caring, compassionate people like you.)
Last year, almost 7 million children died before their fifth birthday. If that were a war, it would be among the bloodiest in human history. Most died from preventable or treatable threats such as diarrhea and pneumonia, with malnutrition contributing to a third of these deaths. Tell Congress you support health workers, soldiers on the frontlines of this war for survival.
Safety and Security of our Children in the United States
Every child deserves a happy and safe childhood and an opportunity for a bright future. But for too many—including the 20 young lives lost in Newtown, CT and the 16 million who live in poverty—that isn’t a reality. Tell Congress to form a National Commission on Children and restore critical funding lost due to the fiscal cliff.
Save the Children works in the world's poorest and most vulnerable communities in countries from America to Zimbabwe — saving one child at a time. Sadly, we know firsthand that far too many children aren't getting the help they need. And that's where YOU come in.
Children are the future. But many children cannot meet their basic needs or get the protection they deserve. These children cannot vote, and their voices are too soft or distant to reach those who can help. And so their struggles continue.
Advocacy Summit 2013 was a great success. Stay tuned for news about next years summit in early 2014.
Save the Children gives children in the United States and around the world what every child deserves – a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm, especially when disaster strikes. We advocate and achieve lasting change for millions of children. We save children’s lives.
