Millions of children are facing starvation right now – this doesn’t have to happen. Save The Children has launched an emergency aid response in Africa.

Today sees the launch of a ground-breaking social media campaign, I’m Gonna Be Your Friend supported by many of the world’s most famous names in entertainment and their fans. A global audience in the region of 600 million Facebook and Twitter fans – hashtag #beafriend – can view a short film of the crisis in East Africa created by award-winning director Kevin MacDonald from footage of East Africa. The film is set to the 1973 Bob Marley & The Wailers song High Tide or Low Tide.

Please watch the video, share with friends and go to iTunes to download Bob Marley & The Wailer’s single High Tide or Low Tide with all proceeds going to the East Africa food crisis appeal. You can also use the I’m Gonna Be Your Friend link to make a donation.

Children urgently need your help. Share this info on Facebook and Twitter. Go to iTunes and download Bob Marley & The Wailer’s single High Tide or Low Tide to support Save The Children’s East Africa appeal. Donate now. Do it now.  Do it for the Children
