In lieu of birthday gifts this year, Ceci (almost 11), Giselle (9) and Garret (almost 7) would like to FUNDRAISE for Shot@Life, a global vaccines campaign to get vaccines to the world's most vulnerable kids. Please consider a donation here in their name! That would be so AWESOME!!!
They'd like to give another kid a shot at living to their next birthday! THANK YOU!!! $20 immunizes a child for life against polio, measles, rotorvirus and pneumonia -- some of the world's deadliest and most debilitating diseases for kids in the developing world.
Shot@Life is a campaign of the United Nations Foundation. It educates, connects and empowers Americans to champion vaccines as one of the most cost-effective ways to save the lives of children in developing countries. Together, we can save a child’s life every 20 seconds by expanding access to vaccines.
For the cost of a week’s worth of coffee, a child's birthday gift, or a large pizza, you can change a child’s life forever.
Your donation could:
- Protect a child from polio and measles for his lifetime for only $5
- Pay for vaccines to protect a child from the two most deadly diseases – pneumonia and diarrhea for just $15
- Give a child a lifetime of immunity to protect her from pneumonia, diarrhea, polio and measles for $20
- Protect three children from these four diseases for a donation of $60
Can you believe that this year, 1.7 million children will die from diseases that have all but disappeared in the U.S.?
Though these children dying may seem a world away, they aren’t any different from the children in each of our own lives.
