Did you know that 1 in 5 children will die from a preventable disease this year? Yep, that's 1 in 5 children that won't live to see their next birthday!
That's why I'm asking for your help as I mark a milestone in my life. I will turn 40 this weekend and I'm asking you to help me celebrate my birthday by helping me help 40 kids meet more milestones they may otherwise not see in their lifetime!
It's simple, I'm asking you to easily donate to Shot@Life for my 40th birthday and we can give 40 more children access to life-saving vaccines that will help them have a shot@: more birthdays, baking cakes, turning 40, and celebrating with friends!
$20 vaccinates one child and every little bit helps me reach my goal. And with polio being 99% eradicated, we only have 1% to go...so this money could help to vaccinate 800 children from polio too! It costs about $1 to vaccinate 1 child from polio alone! And we could be part of histroy by eliminating this entire disease! Could you imagine?
40 kids for 40 years!
