Help Put Human Rights at the Heart of the Millennium Development Goals

Via on Sep 23, 2010

This via Amnesty International:

Be [one of the thousands of persons] to sign the Millennium Development Goals petition and help stop the preventable deaths of women during childbirth.

Every 90 seconds, a woman – most likely living in poverty – dies giving birth.

Ten years ago, the world’s leaders agreed to eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as a global initiative to eradicate poverty by 2015. While significant advances have been made to fight poverty during this time, the goal aimed at decreasing maternal deaths has fallen far short of where it needs to be.

Help us reach our goal of sending 10,000 signatures to MDG Summit Presidents when they meet in New York the week of September 20th!

About Alex Myles

Alex Myles is qualified as a Yoga teacher, Reiki Master, Teacher of Tibetan Meditation, Dragon Magic and a Spiritual coach to name just a few. Alex has no intention to teach others on a formal basis for many years to come, instead, she is collecting qualifications along with life’s lessons. One day, when the time is right, Alex will set up a quaint studio, in a quirky crooked building where she will breathe and appreciate the slowness of those days as life is just way too busy right now! Reading and writing has always been one of Alex’s passions. Alex likes to consider herself as a free spirit rather than a commitment-phobe. Trying to live as aligned to a Buddhist lifestyle as is possible in this day and age, she just does not believe in "owning" anything or anyone. Based on the theory that we ‘cannot lose someone that was not ours to lose’ she flails through life finding joy and magic in the most unexpected places. Mother to a 21 year old daughter and three adorable pups, she appreciates that some of the best moments in life are the 6am forest walks watching the dogs run, play and interact with one another and with nature.
