Every day more than a 1,000 babies are born with HIV worldwide; more than half won’t live till their second birthday. One.org, cofounded by Bono, is working to change that with the “No Child Born With HIV by 2015” campaign. In conjunction with (RED), one.org is asking the Obama administration to commit $6 billion to The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria over the next three years to send antiretroviral meds to pregnant women in Africa. To add your name to the petition, go to one.org.
