Help Support Childhood Vaccinations With #GivingTuesday
Dec 02, 2013
Every Child By Two Executive Director, Amy Pisani writes the following letter in consideration of #GivingTuesday.
As Every Child By Two (ECBT) continues our partnership with the #GivingTuesday initiative, we wish to thank you for your generous support over the years. Whether you’ve provided a monetary donation, staunchly defended the benefits of vaccines on our social media platforms, or have taken action in support of immunization policies, you’ve helped us in our mission to ensure that the 12,000 babies born every day receive timely, life-saving vaccinations.
Thanks to your involvement, ECBT’s Vaccinate Your Baby initiative has exceeded our wildest expectations. Messaging from our Vaccinate Your Baby Facebook page reaches more than 500,000 viewers each week and our Shot of Prevention blog posts and tweets continue to be read by hundreds of thousands of people, including many influential bloggers and reporters. As a result of our Vaccinate Your Baby initiative, ECBT has become one of the largest online sources for pro-vaccination information and messaging.
As we expand our efforts to save the lives of young children, we’re developing a new campaign, Vaccinate Your Family, and we need your help. The Vaccinate Your Family campaign will focus on the need to protect infants from the dangers of influenza and whooping cough, both of which continue to take the lives of too many precious children. The campaign will educate the public on the strategy of “cocooning” infants until they can be fully immunized by vaccinating pregnant women, family members and close contacts.
Unfortunately, as the economy continues to recover we’ve seen traditional funding sources diminish and so we rely on your support more now then ever before. By making a tax deductible donation, you can help us make a lasting impact on the health of children everywhere. Please visit our donation page and consider a contribution that demonstrates the value of vaccines. Whether you can give $15, $50, $500 or more, your gift is critical to ECBT’s mission to save lives through timely vaccination.
We are truly grateful for your partnership and for all you do to ensure the health of children.
With Warmest Regards, Amy Pisani, Executive Director, Every Child By Two
