Be A Friend

“Not one child should be denied food nor water. Not one child should suffer. Along with Save the Children, we [must] stand up together as friends to put a stop to this, to feed our children and to save their lives." 
-Rita Marley, Bob Marley's Wife

The above video coupled with Bob Marley's "High Tide or Low Tide" is part of a campaign known as "I'm Gonna Be Your Friend" that is devoted to ending hunger in East Africa. The goal is to "raise awareness and much needed funds for the desperate situation...where millions of lives are threatened through starvation and lack of water." This is being done by simply releasing Marley's classic track for purchase on iTunes. All it takes is a $1.29 and you will be feeding a hungry mouth. You can also donate via the campaign's website, where $15 can buy four blankets, feed a child for a week, and provide a family of five clean water for a month. Bob Marley's songs have always provided millions with hope and warmth, so why not follow in his footsteps and help be a part of a mission to save millions.
