Your Amazon Purchases Can Help Educate People About Vaccines
Nov 22, 2016
Make purchases throughout the year with AmazonSmile and Every Child By Two could receive .5% of the price of your eligible purchases as a charitable donation to help in their mission to educate people about vaccines.
AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you may already know, with the same products, the same prices, and the same service.
The only difference is that when you first visit AmazonSmile, you’ll make a few clicks to designate Every Child By Two as your charitable organization of choice. From that point on, every purchase – whether it’s holiday gifts or household necessities – will result in automatic donations to Every Child By Two, at no added cost to you!
It may seem like pennies to you, but last year, Every Child By Two embarked on an ambitious mission and every penny helped.
They started the new year by launching the Vaccinate Your Family website and Facebook page to help educate people about the importance of vaccines throughout the life span, and they’ve made great strides in reaching new audiences with timely news and evidence based information. In fact, for nearly 25 years, Every Child by Two has been a credible resource for reliable, science-based information about vaccines and their safety.
Every Child By Two is committed to improving vaccination rates at all ages, but they need your continued support.
All the donations they receive help fund their ongoing efforts to educate the public about the dangers of vaccine-preventable diseases and the critical importance of following the recommended immunization schedule. They also provide critical support for the development of educational programs, as well as strong immunization policies aimed at protecting families from vaccine-preventable diseases.
They have accomplished so much, but there is still much to be done.
Nationwide adult vaccination rates remain dismally low, and only about half of pregnant women are getting the recommended vaccines that can help pass immunity on to their unborn children. There are still many preteens and teens that are not fully protected from meningococcal and HPV. And people of all ages continue to suffer and die from vaccine preventable diseases.
But you can help by designating Every Child By Two to receive a charitable donation when you make purchases through the AmazonSmile program.
