Did you know that every year, more than 7 million newborns and children die before their 5thÂ birthdayâ€”mostly from preventable and treatable causes, such as pneumonia, diarrhea and malaria? Â Wondering what you can do so that more children survive?
How can weÂ make basic life-saving health care available to children around the world andÂ improve childrenâ€™s health in the worldâ€™s poorest and most remote communities?
When: Wednesday, August 29th, 2012,Â 9-10pm EST
Weâ€™re thrilled to be joining forces withÂ Save the Children to promote theirÂ new Every Beat Matters campaign for newborn and child survival, coinciding with OneRepublicâ€™s release release of their new single, â€œFeel Againâ€.Â A portion of proceeds from each download will benefit Save the Children (the download will be available at midnight Sunday).
OneRepublic lead singer Ryan Tedder wrote this special song, drawing on recordings of heartbeats of children in remote villages of Malawi and Guatemala for inspiration.
Every Beat Matters,Â a campaign from Save the Children and the Ad CouncilÂ champions training and supporting frontline health workers as the best investment to sustainably improve childrenâ€™s health in the worldâ€™s poorest and most remote communities.

And, of course, check out this clip from this morningâ€™s Good Morning America, whenÂ OneRepublic debuted its new single â€œFeel Againâ€ that will benefit Save the Childrenâ€™s Every Beat Matters campaign:
