Abel Bishop Herbert signed Thank UN Peacekeepers via Nayif Salim 2015-02-09 03:13:28 -0500While we work the earth achieving our dreams, career, education, family’s happiness and lifestyle… Some, amongst us humans, have become responsible for KEEPING THE PEACE. Making sure that we are all safe is their responsibility. Such patriots I admire!
Join us in thanking the more than 113,000 brave men and women from 116 countries who serve as United Nations peacekeepers in 15 missions around the world.
UN peacekeepers risk their lives every day to rebuild societies wracked by violence and natural disasters, restore confidence in people who have known little but war, and adapt to new challenges in some of the most difficult places in the world.
Add your name – and a note if you'd like – to the thank you card below, and we'll deliver it to UN peacekeepers worldwide.857 postcardsAdd postcard

Abel Bishop Herbert signed Numbers count. So should girls. 2014-11-06 19:08:25 -0500Child Basic and Mother Care Initiative is committed to the girl child education and empowerment
Why Count Girls?
Approximately one person in twelve around the world is a girl or young woman aged 10–24. Yet many developing countries do not account for the number of girls in their population. Due to an unavailability of systems to count these girls, and sometimes simply due to a lack of political will, girls will be denied birth certificates or other forms of official identification. This means that as a girl grows up it will be difficult, if not impossible, for her to attend school or get a job in the formal business sector. She will not be able to own her own or inherit land, start her own business, or vote. She will likely be confined to the home and left unpaid – an invisible member of society.
Update: The House of Representatives just voted unanimously to pass the Girls Count Act. The Senate passed the bill at the end of May, which means it now heads to the President’s desk to be signed into law!
Congress passing the Girls Count Act is a huge step toward helping girls (and boys) everywhere reach their full potential. When a child isn’t registered, they are invisible in the eyes of their government and their society. And girls are disproportionately affected.743 signatures
