Campaign Art: Every Day, 500 Kids Don’t Make It. But You Can Save Them

LUCPeople, Spaces, Deliberation bloggers present exceptional campaign art from all over the world. These examples are meant to inspire.

According to World Health Organization figures, 500 children are killed each day in road crashes globally.  In fact, road traffic injury ranks among the top four causes of death for all children over the age of five years.  To raise awareness of this deadly reality, Jean Todt, President of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), the international motoring federation, and Special Envoy of the UN Secretary General for Road Safety, turned to world renowned film director Luc Besson to deliver a potent message: children face incredible danger when crossing the road!

‘Save Kids Lives’, shows children in the townships of South Africa and in central Paris, France walking to and from school to show that the risks children face are almost universally shared, whether they are due to a lack of safe infrastructure or as a result of heavy traffic. The film is shocking, and may contain images some people find disturbing. But that’s exactly the point, according to Todt, who believes that it will help focus attention on making roads safe for children everywhere.

The film was launched the first week in October to coincide with International Walk to School Day and to support#SaveKidsLives, a UN initiative that calls for action to stop the growing number of road deaths worldwide and for decision makers to prioritize children’s safety.

The Heart Has No Colour, No Country, No Religion, No Sex

Andrea: Her wise comment inspired me to write this article.

I do write a lot, but I have to admit that some of my writings were created from comments of readers or my followers. As writers or bloggers, when we read comments on articles: How seriously do we take them, ponder over them to see their usefulness, significance and effect?

Many argue that it’s not good to make comment, but I say that It’s good to comment on articles, but if you don’t have anything significant to say, please shut your mouth, because your comment can give you the respect you deserve and the same comment can put you into a very big trouble, because of the bad things you said.

Believe me some comments worth more than silver and gold. It can change one’s life and the way you think, especially if you don’t have any love in your heart for someone. There are many problems and almost all these problems were caused by man. Pride, superiority and racism are some of the problems tearing our society apart today, yet no one wants to be called a racist.

Recently I posted an article captioned “Who Says There Is No Happiness Or Love In Africa?” The fact that Africa is a continent which has suffered a great deal of wars, ethnic conflicts, slavery and man-made diseases, many think they don’t have love for each other. Frankly speaking, a poor African can easily share his food with a friend, than a rich man in a developed country.

This particular article I wrote, didn’t generate much comment, but the only comment I had was awesome and inspiring. It touched my soul to read it over and over, allowing it to geminate in me, to add it to the little I have and share  with others.

According blogger Andrea, who runs this Italian blog: ‘Libera mente & Critica mente’:

Each person has a heart, and in each heart there is Love.

So everyone of us has Love in his/her heart.

The heart has no colour, no Country, no religion, no sex.

So Love has no colour, no Country, no religion, no sex.

Too many times, unfortunately, people forget to be human, and that have a heart…

I hope everyone agrees with me that this quotation or comment is awesome and carries wisdom? Thank you Andrea.

Social Media Tips: WordPress: It looks like your Facebook URL is incorrectly configured. Please check it in your widget settings.

Connecting social media buttons from ‘WordPress’ to Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest etc, is very easy but with facebook, it’s sometimes a little bit complicated, even though connecting ‘Facebook like button’ to your Facebook Page is very simple. Recently I changed my Facebook personal page  to business page. I regretted. I couldn’t like a page, contact a friend or comment on any article. I cancelled the business page to reverse it to personal page, but I haven’t been successful yet.

It was just this week, after connecting the social media buttons to my accounts successfully, Facebook alone failed again with this message from ‘WordPress’: “It looks like your Facebook URL is incorrectly configured. Please check it in your widget settings.” This message is seen as soon as you log in to your blog.

Many bloggers are frustrated about this notice they see everyday, but this is something bloggers shouldn’t be worried about, because the message is just to remind you to fix it . That means ‘WordPress’ cares about the users. It’s only the blogger who just logged in sees that message, those that visit your blog or readers don’t see that message available on your blog. So don’t worry be happy.
