Handful of Celebrities Calling for Real Action on AIDS and Education



Elton John joined other top entertainers signing a petition calling on G8 leaders to stick to their promises to help poor countries.

Not because they have nothing to do. But it is all because they own deep concern toward the matters that they willing to do it. Numbers of celebrities, naming some are Elton John, Alicia Keys, Jessica Alba and Liv Tyler, signing a petition calling on G8 leaders to stick to their promises to help poor countries.

Those top entertainers put their names on the "Global Petition Calling for Real Action on AIDS and Education" document, demands leaders of the G8 industrialized countries to stick to agreements to improve support for health and education made at the 2005 summit, which have yet to be fulfilled.

"How can we break the promises we make to the world's most vulnerable people?" John said in a statement. "I am signing this petition because the G8 leaders should keep their promises, and I urge music-lovers and everyone around the world to sign it too."

Some other famous names also signed the petition, including David Bowie's model wife Iman and the Indian model/actress Padma Lakshmi. With the signing of the petition we hope that G8 leaders, including U.S. President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair, will have at least one major issue to discuss about when they due to meet in Germany next week.
