Subject: 5th Newsletter ā€“ Coca-Cola Rehydration Campaign

Dear All

Thank you all for your continued support to the campaign. Here is a summary of progress since the 4th Newsletter update.

1. NGO Support
Contact has been made with WaterAid and Oxfam, however neither are yet
to agree to engage with the campaign. It is going to be a challenge to
get an international NGO on board. However, through the Facebook Group
we have contact with some very senior people in both the aforementioned
organisations and these links are being followed. In the meantime NGO
research continues.

2. BBC iPM Interview
The BBC’s iPM Team contacted me for a follow-up interview. A video of the interview can be seen here: http://beamends.typepad.com/simons_blog/2008/07/a-video-of-the.html

3. Ethiopia and Tanzania Research
The research in Ethiopia and Tanzania has started and we have contact
with the frontline. A regular blog on this has been started here.
Please comment with any questions/clarifications you have:

4. 2gether08 Festival
I gave a presentation at the 2gether08 event and this can be viewed here:

5. ColaLife Google Group
We have set up a Google Group to enable email-based discussions between members who want this. You can join the group here:

6. Facebook ā€“ Kate Andrews
Kate Andrews has volunteered to help with the management of the Facebook Group. Thanks Kate.

Finally, please do forward this email to your friends and ask them, please, to join the Facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=18947780476 The continued growth of the group means we continue to make amazing progress.

Onwards and upwards

Simon
