Amanda Peet Continues Her Vaccine Advocacy on Behalf of Children Worldwide
Jun 13, 2014

By: Amy Pisani, Executive Director, Every Child By Two

Last year I  traveled alongside Vaccine Ambassador/Actor Amanda Peet to Kenya where we witnessed the incredible work being done to ensure that every child in this world is protected against vaccine preventable diseases.  The task is not simple, but the people working in these countries are committed to making this goal a reality.  Please read this important message from Amanda and take action now by calling Congress with the message that this matters to you!


Message from Amanda Peet:


Last year, I traveled to Kenya, and while I was there I had a chance to meet fellow moms and their kids. Some of these families had walked several miles for their children to receive what, to us here in the States, are routine immunizations against diseases that many of us have never, and will never, see in our lifetime.

The fact is, every 20 seconds, a child around the globe dies from a vaccine-preventable disease. Yet, there is something we can all do about it.

I’m convinced that if mothers and fathers in the U.S. banded together, if we told all of our friends and brought this issue to our representatives in Congress, we could be on the right side of history.

In the next few weeks, Congress will decide how much funding will go to support critical health programs, including global childhood vaccines. But, they need to hear from YOU!

Tell Congress that you support full funding for global vaccine programs.

Routine immunizations save the lives of millions of children around the world every year. By voicing our support, we can make sure that U.S. support for global vaccine programs continues.

Please join me in giving children around the world a shot at life.

Thank you,

Amanda Peet
Actress and Shot@Life Global Advocate
