What do you think about fate?
This post is inspired by Shot@Life, an initiative of the United Nations Foundation that educates, connects and empowers the championing of vaccines as one of the most cost effective ways to save the lives of children in the world’s hardest to reach places.
While fate may appear time to time in people’s lives, some things can’t be left to fate. Raising a healthy child to adulthood requires a destiny of conscious decisions including providing vaccines at prescribed times. Unfortunately, that choice isn’t available to all parents in the world. In some regions, far too many mothers have to bury their babies before they reach five years old because they lacked access to life saving vaccinations. As a mom and grandmother, I can’t stand by and let that continue without trying to do something. That is why I support Shot@Life and Walgreens for bringing awareness and making a difference. Won’t you join me? Please leave a comment below and change the world.
Blogust is also part of a wider initiative proudly supported by Walgreens, the “Get a Shot. Give a Shot.” campaign. Walgreens has committed $500,000 to donate up to 3 million vaccines for those kids who need them most. Beginning September 3 through October 14, when you go to Walgreens to get your flu shot, Walgreens will donate a vaccine to the Shot@Life campaign!
