Giving Kids a Shot @ Life

Shot @ Life

Blogging is a funny thing. I often feel a bit weird about my place here on the internet. To my friends, it’s a strange hobby and they query why I often get random “free” things. To online friends, it’s a business that I should do more with. To businesses, it’s a place where I can promote them.

And to me? It’s a blank slate to spill my thoughts.
Sometimes I feel funny about using it as a platform.

But when I found out about Shot@Life, I felt no issues at all with promoting it. As a vaccine cautious mom, I feel it is especially important for me to talk about the importance of global vaccines. We joke a lot about #FirstWorldProblems on Facebook and Twitter but deciding whether to vaccinate our kids and on what schedule truly is a first world problem. While we dither, kids in third world countries are being struck down by diseases that are preventable by a vaccine.

Every 20 seconds a child dies of a disease that could have been prevented by a vaccine.
For $20 a child has a lifetime of protection from pneumonia, diarrhea, polio and measles.

Shot@Life believes that real change can be made in global health by giving people in the U.S. the opportunity to make a meaningful impact. They are building a grassroots movement of U.S. citizens ready to make a difference. I want to be part of that difference and I believe you do too.

Join the campaign
Advocate for Shot@Life in your community and to your members of Congress
Donate to the cause, $20 is a dinner for you… it’s a Shot @ Life for a child

I hope you will join me in this movement!

    I believe in an ounce of prevention, not sure why parents wouldn’t want to protect their children….great post!

  3. I hate getting more meds than necessary, but to me it just makes sense to give them the protection that has proven to work. Great reminder.
