Drawings by my lot 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 Motherporridge, asking me to join in by passing on the petition, The rules are as follows:
1) Get your child to either draw or craft a self-portrait of themselves now or in the future, perhaps imagining what they will look like or what they might do.
2) Sign the Save the Children petition and share news of it with your friends.
3) Come back and join the linky here.
4) Tag 8 bloggers to do the same.
I asked all my kids what they wanted to be when they grew up…here are their responses…
The pictures: from biggest to littlest, we are going to the shops to get more colouring pens as they are on their last legs and Monty and Lola were very frustrated doing their’s saying it ‘wasn’t good’…blaming the tools. But anyway, here they are for the world to judge.
Monty wants to be the following: a Zoo Keeper, a ‘Policemen’, a Climber, a Karate, UFC and Judo champion and an Astronaut. So we’ll see how he gets on after he discovers girls and beer…
|He actually called his picture 'rubbish', and pointed out he'd done arms coming out of the Astronaut's boobies.|
Lola wants to be a mummy Princess, and have 3 kids.
|Lola is not doing anymore till we get some non dried up pens...fair enough, we get the gist!|
Mitzi wants to be a climber, she always has wanted to be, a mountain climber, and eat icecreams in 'clocky' shoes.
|These feet could be trotters, or 'clocky' shoes, and she's in the process of climbing, hence the hands in the air look.|
Esmie, like Pinocchio, wants to be a real boy or a spider. We may have some full on issues to break through with her…
|Pretty full on spider...|
|I do hope she may change her mind about being a real boy....|
So there we have it, and the following, you’re IT!
well, come on...what you waiting for??!
