As some of you know, I recently became a Global Health Champion for the United Nations Foundation's Shot@Life campaign. We are building a movement to protect children worldwide by providing life-saving vaccines to give all children around the world a shot at a healthy life.
This year, 1.7 million children will die from diseases like Polio and Measles that have all but disappeared in the U.S. Access to these vaccines is one of the most cost-effective ways to save the lives of children in developing countries.
For a few dollars, you can change a child’s life forever:
- A $5 donation can protect a child from polio and measles in his lifetime
- A $15 donation can pay for vaccines to protect a child from the two most deadly diseases – pneumonia and diarrhea
- a $20 donation can give a child a lifetime of immunity to protect her from pneumonia, diarrhea, polio and measles
- A $60 donation can protect three children from these four diseases
Thank you for considering a donation of any amount to help ensure these kids — and their moms — get to the same milestones that we get to celebrate eachyear.
I appreciate your consideration. Pass it on and here's to many more milestones for us all...
