We need your help to spread the word about burns in the developing world.
Send: Photo Challenge
Recently, we asked you to challenge the way the world thinks about burn injuries in developing countries by sending us a photo holding a ReThink Burns sign. More than 800 people took on this challenge and joined our movement. Thanks to the generous support of two donors, this challenge secured a $5 donation per photo. Your efforts helped us raise more than $4,000 for burn care!
Although the fundraising aspect of our challenge is over, we still need your help raising awareness about the hidden global health crisis of burn injuries. Send us your ReThink Burn photo today! Here is how:
1. Download the ReThink Burns sign at: http://bit.ly/RTBSign
2. Take a picture of yourself, or your friends and family, holding the sign
3. Post your picture to our Facebook page (facebook.com/resurge)
or email it to us at: Liliana@resurge.org
and let us know where you took the photo. We will then feature your photo on our ReThink Burns Pinterest board.

Learn: The Staggering Impact of Burns
Severe burns remain a neglected health crisis in developing countries, particularly among poor women and children who use open flames for cooking and lighting. Learn about the staggering scope of burns and the possible solutions. Learn More.
Join this growing movement and advocate for those whose voices are not heard.
Ninety-five percent of all burn injuries happen in developing countries where prevention is almost nonexistent and medical care for burns is extremely limited. Despite these staggering revelations, few people know about this global health crisis. In response, we created the ReThink Burns campaign to raise awareness about the need to help countless women, men and children from suffering disabling burn injuries.
Special thanks to our generous donors, Emil and Patty Wang, for this photo challenge "match" donation.
