Campaign to protect 0.7% of UK GNI for global poor.post by Natasha · 2021-02-17T18:42:47.420Z · EA · GW · 2 comments
This post will be most relevant to people with a UK address (regardless of age or citizenship), UK citizens who have previously lived in the UK or people who know people with a UK address that they could forward this to, as we are asking people to contact their MPs. However, others can also help with testing the site and giving feedback.
A few of us have been working on a couple of months on a campaign to protect 0.7% of UK GNI as aid spending for people overseas affected by extreme poverty, disease, lack of access to services, war, climate change and natural disasters. (See Sanjay's posts here [EA · GW] and here [EA · GW] for more detail)
Our app, which will find your MP, and generate an email to send to them, is now ready at https://www.point7percent.org/
The survey and email from the link above will only take about 2 minutes, but if this campaign is successful we could prevent around 100,000 deaths, prevent around 1 million girls from missing out on school, and prevent around 3 million people missing out on nutrition. (sources for these are this article)
It would also be very helpful if you could:
- Provide feedback using this form
- Share on social media, Whatsapp, text or however you can reach people.
