It only takes 2 seconds...

I've just signed the No Child Soldiers Declaration committing myself to help bring peace and protection to the children of northern Uganda. More than 25,000 children have been captured, tortured, and used as frontline soldiers and sex slaves in a bloody civil war that has raged for 20 years.
The time has come to end this war.
I hope you will make this commitment, too.
Please join with thousands of concerned citizens and parents who believe that all children deserve to have a childhood free from torture and a future free from cruelty.
World Vision will take this petition to the Bush Administration, Congress, and the United Nations to demand action.
World Vision's goal is 1 million signatures--and they need your help to get there.

This is great. I just signed it and emailed it to my enormous family. It took about 10 seconds (if we are going to be literal) and another minute to list my whole family. I am glad to know about this!
