I'm the author of "GIve a Little: How Your Small Donations Can Transform Our World." I am passionate about debunking myths about giving and spreading the word about the power and potential of affordable giving by everyday citizens.
I'm also helping launch the U.N. Foundation's Shot@Life campaign, which will immunize kids in developing countries against 4 deadly yet totally preventable childhood illnesses: polio, measles, rotavirus and pneumonia.
Just $20 immunizes 1 child against all four diseases. The benefits of immunizing children include helping children reach their developmental and future economic potential by getting them to and keeping them in school; reducing birth rates; preserving families' incomes by avoiding medical costs; and allowing parents to go to work regularly, giving them a better chance at achieving economic prosperity. Finally, prosperous families and communities lead to prosperous and more peaceful nations.
Join the campaign by signing a petition to Congress to maintain funding for vaccinations overseas or donating to help immunize a child! http://www.shotatlife.org/act<!--StartFragment--><!--EndFragment-->
