:enIf you love life, vote for Robin Lim to be a CNN Hero 2011.

In March 2011, Robin Lim was nominated as a 2011 CNN Hero candidate. It takes nine months for the CNN Hero of the Year to be announced, which will be on December 11th, 2011. Nine months: the same time it takes for a baby to grow in the womb.

The birth we await now isn’t the celebration of one woman, the honorific title of ‘hero,’ or a grand monetary prize, but of something much more meaningful: The community work that Robin can continue to do if she is selected as CNN Hero in 2011.

Robin Lim has chosen Akarumput as their ‘midwife’ for this ‘birth,’and Akarumput has humbly accepted the task for several good reasons: Akarumput supports safe and free healthcare services for pregnant women, birthing women, and infants and children, such as those the Bumi Sehat Clinics provide. Akarumput is an active supporter of efforts to reduce mother, infant, and child mortality rates, which are still high in Indonesia. Believing that what is good for the planet is good for its people, Akarumput supports natural health practices, that respect mother earth and are the life-giving and live-preserving, foundational practices of Bumi Sehat. Akarumput fully supports Robin Lim’s plans to build a much-needed new medical clinic, if she receives the donation allotted for CNN’s 2011 Hero.

Robin Lim’s values also match our own, beyond our commitment to holistic and natural healthcare: She is an active supporter of the Bali Urban Farming movement and an avid grower of her own nutritious fruits, vegetables, and medicinal plants (even though Robin’s home in Nyuh Kuning isn’t exactly urban). But we have a personal motivation as well for supporting Robin Lim’s CNN Hero campaigh: We strive to do the best we can to support good people who love life.

If you also support Robin Lim’s vision, follow these steps:

1. Take a moment to vote for her on the CNN website. All you need is an email address or Facebook account. Your can vote from each email address or Facebook account as many as 10 times a day, so if you have more than one account, be sure to vote from your other email accounts as well. Voting ends on December 7th, 2011.

2. Email a link to this page or share it on a social network with 10 people you love. Do this as often as you can.

3. Add the “Vote Robin Lim” banner to your website or blog, and attach it to your email signature.

4. Follow @iburobin on Twitter and ‘Like’ her facebook page.
5. Vote and vote again.

::IDBila Anda mencintai kehidupan, mari vote Robin Lim untuk CNN Hero 2011.

Maret 2011, Robin Lim terpilih sebagai kandidat CNN Heroes 2011. Perlu sembilan bulan, sebelum CNN Hero of The Year diumumkan, tepatnya 11 Desember 2011. Sembilan bulan yang seperti menunggu proses sebuah kelahiran.

Kelahiran di sini bukan predikat pahlawan atau hadiah uang, tapi untuk hal-hal lebih besar yang bisa dikerjakan Robin untuk masyarakat bila terpilih. Robin Lim dan Klinik Bumi Sehat menunjuk Akarumput sebagai ‘bidan’ untuk ‘proses kelahiran’ ini.

Akarumput bersedia mengerjakan permintaan ini karena beberapa alasan. Pertama, Akarumput berpihak pada penyediaan pelayanan kesehatan tanpa biaya bagi ibu hamil, ibu melahirkan, dan bayi baru lahir seperti yang disediakan Klinik Bumi Sehat. Kedua, Akarumput ingin aktif mendukung upaya-upaya menekan angka kematian ibu, bayi baru lahir dan anak yang masih tinggi di Indonesia.

Ketiga, Akarumput mendukung praktek-praktek kesehatan dengan metode pengobatan alami dan menghormati alam seperti yang dijalankan di Klinik Bumi Sehat. Keempat, Akarumput sepakat pada rencana Robin Lim  terhadap hadiah yang akan ia terima bila terpilih sebagai CNN Heroes 2011.

Kelima, Robin Lim sangat mendukung gerakan Bali Urban Farming dan ia ingin terlibat (meski rumahnya di Nyuh Kuning bukan kota, tapi sub-urban :p). Keenam, kami ingin menjadi orang baik yang mencintai kehidupan (ciee).

Bila Anda juga ingin mendukung keinginan Robin Lim, berikut langkah-langkahnya:

1. Luangkan sejenak waktu untuk memilih dia di laman ini. Anda hanya perlu memasukkan alamat email atau akun facebook. Satu alamat email (berapa email yang Anda punya?) atau akun facebook bisa melakukan vote maksimal 10 kali sehari. Voting ditutup pada 7 Desember 2011.

2. Kirim tulisan atau link ke laman ini kepada 10 orang yang Anda cintai lewat email, atau jejaring sosial. Lakukan sesering mungkin.

3. Pasang banner “Vote Robin Lim” di situs atau blog Anda, dan cantumkan sebagai email signature.

4. Follow @iburobin di Twitter dan ‘Like’ Facebook page Robin Lim.

5. Vote dan vote lagi.
