Claire Danes Adds Her Thumbprint Of Approval To Save The Children's EVERY ONE Campaign

In the developing world, saving a child’s life can be as simple as draping a mosquito net around their bed, offering them a vaccination or dispensing an antibiotic. Unfortunately, due to chronic rates of poverty and the continued absence of such basic resources, the rate of premature deaths for those under the age of five is hovering around 8.1 million each year (the equivalent of 60 deaths per 1,000 live births).

Amazingly, this figure is actually a significant improvement from the 90s when a staggering 12.4 million children were dying annually, but Save The Children believes that we can do a lot better considering that 22,000 children currently die every 24 hours. Yesterday, they promoted their EVERY ONE campaign with the help of actress Claire Danes by encouraging people to add their thumbprint to a mosaic art piece designed by Ian Wright in an act of support for their cause.

The piece will now be given to a UN representative, hopefully inspiring global leaders to rally in favor of cutting deaths in just 5 years time (saving at least 15 million children) through the implementation of simple water, sanitation, nutrition, health care and education projects. Other actors such as Hugh Laurie, Mark Ruffalo, Judi Dench and musician Annie Lennox have also backed this worthy cause and for a sense of how the event unfolded yesterday with Danes front-and-center, take a look at this hot-off-the-press video.
