Ask One Friend Every Day to Help Stop Children Dying from Diarrhea

Who wants to talk about diarrhea?  We've all had it.  We've all been embarassed by it.  But the real shame is the 1.3 million children under 5 who are dying every year from a disease that is largely preventable - a disease that we don't want to talk about.
