What Did Everyone Give Thanks For This Year?
Nov 30, 2009

I hope everyone had a happy and healthy Thanksgiving weekend. I wanted to give everyone an update on a very special project that the Colorado Children’s Immunization Coalition put together.  Their Healthy Kids Thank-A-Thon urged parents, grandparents and mommies-to-be to submit gratitude statements, photos, videos and blogs online explaining why they are grateful for a healthy child on the Health Kids Thank-A-Thon website.
Well, the results are in and I thought it was worth sharing with our Shot of Prevention readers, and not just because I am one of the participants! There are some really touching videos from parents and family members, and I thought that even though it’s not Thanksgiving anymore, we can still take a moment to reflect on this important topic.  Check out the YouTube videos here.
