Bette Midler:From Me To You
Special Message To You From Bette Midler
Like many of you, I have recently been deeply affected by the terrible suffering of the people of Darfur, Sudan.
Over the last two years, over 380,000 people have died, and 2 million driven from their homes by a brutal campaign of repression by the Sudanese government. Darfur's women have been targeted for systematic rape and brutality. This terrible inhumanity must stop. It affects all of us, because we are all connected in one human family. But to stop it you and I need to rise up and be heard.
We CAN stop the killing, if we can persuade our government to put enough pressure on the Sudanese government and its allies to make them stop. Please take just 3 minutes today, right now, to send a strong message to President Bush, or donate money to advocacy or humanitarian aid.Click here to send a message to President Bush.

Thanks so much for your time. There is always hope, let's keep it alive for our brothers and sisters in Darfur, and be their heroes.
