Each Share Gives Another Child a Shot At Life
Apr 24, 2013
Whether it’s a phone call from a telemarketer, a child at your doorstep or a letter from the local school, there are always plenty of well-deserving organizations looking for donations in our communities.
But today, we are not asking for your money. In fact, we’ll get the money from someone else.
All we are asking for is your support! And all it takes is a click and a share!
Today (and everyday through the end of the month) you can unlock the potential to make a $5 donation to the Shot@Life campaign by simply sharing an article from the Global Moms Relay through Facebook, Twitter or Email. Thanks to the generosity of large donors such as Johnson & Johnson and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, a simply share of one of the many featured articles in this program will result in a donation to help moms and children lead healthy lives and help immunize children against preventable diseases like measles and polio. What’s even better is that you can share multiple articles, multiple times through various social media channels to help contribute to the overall $500,000 donation!
Share the article “Motherhood Transcends Borders and Cultures” by Amanda Peet, mother, actor, and Every Child by Two Vaccine Ambassador to the Shot@Life campaign by clicking on this link here.
Amanda Peet often explains why she is a passionate advocate of vaccines:
“It’s proven- vaccines are life-saving. I can’t imagine my daughters not reaching major milestones because of a preventable disease like pneumonia, diarrhea, measles or polio. No mother should have to imagine that. All children should have the opportunity to lead healthy lives and experience all of life’s priceless moments.”
Continue to share other articles throughout the month by visiting The Global Mom Relay website each day and clicking your way to additional donations.
Visit Shot@Life and find out how you can get involved in the movement to protect children worldwide by providing life-saving vaccines where they are most needed.
What better time is there to show your support for global immunizations than during this week – World Immunization Week. Thanks to the efforts of The United Nations Foundation, Johnson & Johnson, BabyCenter, The Huffington Post, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, this first-of-its-kind Global Mom Relay will help improve the lives of women and children around the globe. And with the funds donated through this program, organizations such as WHO, UNICEF and the GAVI Alliance, will distribute vaccines to countries with the greatest need.
Now, all we need is you… and a few hundred of your friends!
