I’ve Been Named a Delegate for the United Nations Foundation’s Shot@Life Champion Summit!

I’m so proud to announce that I’ve been chosen as a delegate for the United Nations Foundation’s 2013 Shot@Life Champion Summit, February 10 to 12, in Washington, DC.

Representing 37 states, the delegates include bloggers, parents, students, professionals and activists who believe in the importance of global vaccines.

Shot at Life

According to Jamie Whalen, Shot@Life campaign associate, “Our champions represent our strongest supporters across the nation – individuals who are dedicating their voice and support to stand up for childhood in developing countries. With fundraising, advocacy and media training, these champions will walk away with plans for taking simple yet impactful steps toward reducing the mortality rate of children under five by 2015 by helping to give every child a shot at a healthy life.”

A national call to action for this global cause, the United Nations Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign rallies the American public, members of Congress and civil society partners around the fact that a child’s life can be saved EVERY 20 SECONDS by expanding access to vaccines. By encouraging Americans to learn about, advocate for and donate vaccines, the campaign will decrease vaccine-preventable childhood deaths and give children a shot at a healthy life.

I’ll be reporting from the Summit and when I get back, but meanwhile I hope you’ll check out shot@life.org for more information. Each day in February, as part of 28 Days of Impact, a follow-up to last year’s Blogust, they’ll be sharing incredible stories about the impact that vaccines have on people around the world.
