12for12k – Doctors Without Borders

September promises to be a fantastic month for The 12for12k Challenge. It is going to bring together three powerful ideas:

12for12k: The idea that regular people can use social media to get together and make the World better

Global Patriot: Mark Lovett’s vision that patriotism needed be confined by national or regional boundaries – which I subscribe to 100%

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières using the same philosophy to bring health care to people in need, regardless of race, religion or any of the other reasons for separating people.

With the huge number of people suffering in the World today, there is no question that Médecins Sans Frontières offers the only hope for many and it is a pleasure to be able to support this brave group of dedicated people in doing their good work.

There is a whole program of really cool events being planned for September. One of the first is Music as Medicine, being held in San Diego on September 3rd.

If you are going to be in San Diego that evening, I hope you can go. It will be a great night and you’ll be supporting a great cause. Even if you can’t be there life, I hope you will be able to make a small contribution to the cause.

There will be more exciting 12for12k and Global Patriot events throughout the month. Search on #12for12k on Twitter or check out the 12for 12k and Global Patriot sites for more info.

It’s time to get involved – time to make a difference!!

What do you think? do you have any ideas to make this program better and more effective? If you do, we’d love to chat with you.

Oh, don’t you agree the Music as Medicine poster is just way cool? I love it =)
