3yo actually pics up a crayon, for Save the Children

In June David Cameron is hosting the global vaccine summit in London, attended by world leaders. Save the Children has launched a campaign to ensure the funding shortfall for vaccinations (4.7 billion) is met by all the donor countries. 8 million children under the age of 5 die each year from treatable or preventable illness. One in five children receives no vaccines at all – they are the poorest, most marginalised children most at risk of killer illnesses such as pneumonia, diarrhoea and measles.
If you do nothing else, please sign the Save the Children petition here.
I have been tagged by Kate asking me to join in by passing around the petition, and join in the bloggers ‘meme’. The rules are:
I asked 3yo what he wanted to be when he grew up. He said a ‘fireman’ and here is his picture. Normally he is very reluctant to draw anything so we are very privileged. He appears to be on fire so I’m thinking that maybe he meant a superhero called ‘fireman’ but hey, art is open to interpretation.
