Eddie Redmayne & More In END7 Campaign Video

Eddie Redmayne & More In END7 Campaign VideoLES MISERABLES star and Tony Award winner Eddie Redmayne joins Emily Blunt and other international stars in this startling new video that has begun to go viral - pun not intended - featuring the torturous effects of seven of the most shockingly popular diseases commonly spread and imbibed by humans, such as roundworm, whipworm, hookworm, snail fever and elephantiasis.

END7 intends to end all seven of the world's most ubituitous diseases by 2020 and offers a pledge on their homepage that states by participating in the program the applicant agrees:

"I am ready to join those who are taking action to give everyone a chance at freedom from debilitating diseases. With the END7 partners, I know that even small contributions will change lives for better and for good. This is not a pledge of 'want' or 'hope.' It is a pledge of 'can' and 'will.' This problem is solvable."

More information is available at the official END7 website here.

The video shows celebrities reacting to stomach-turning footage of the diseases run rampant, as well as providing the footage itself to us before urging us to reach out to other prospective participants and act up to end the unneccessary death caused by these seven all-too common diseases every single day.
