This Mother’s Day, Give a Child a Shot@Life

By April 29, 2013Helping Others

This week is World Immunization week, the perfect time to talk about the importance of global vaccinations.  Of course, it is always a good time to talk about beautiful children and the completely easy things we can do, with all of our blessings, to help them smile for a very long time.  Shot@Life is an amazing organization that provides vaccinations to children around the world.  This week we will help them save a lot of lives.

Every twenty seconds a child dies of a preventable disease.
Only twenty dollars saves the life of a child, providing a lifetime of immunity.
Twenty bloggers are making a difference!

Nicole of Sisters From Another Mister and the twenty lovely bloggers pictured below, together with shot@life and the United Nations Foundation, are very happy to announce a link up to share stories about motherhood to save children around the world. I am excited to be a part of this, and I hope you will be too!

A Mothers day meme link up will open on May 8th and run until the 18th.

We invite you to join us on this journey.  We are sharing stories and saving lives.

On May 8th, a linky will be live on Sisters from Another Mister.  You can visit the 20 posts from this group of bloggers.  You can comment on these posts and / or write your own.  Whether you choose to link or comment, your actions will help save children and give them a shot@life.

How To Link or Comment for Shot@Life

1. Write your post on Motherhood between May 8th and May 18th and link it up. Write it about being a Mom, having a Mom, knowing a Mom, what being a Mom means to you, about wanting to be a Mom. Write about your mom friends, or a mom who makes a difference. Just write!

2. Then make a donation to shot@life in order to link up your post and comment.  You will need to donate a minimum of $10 to link up (but with just $20 you immunize a child for life!) or $1 to comment.  This is how we are working to make sure that this link up raises awareness and much needed funds for shot@life. Of course, all donations are tax deductible.

3. Just wait and see because every post and comment as a part of this will give you an entry into some fun giveaways!

4. You can also help by tweeting or sharing on Facebook or your social network of choice.  I believe in the power of sharing causes that can change the world. I love when people have simple ways to know they are making a difference.  Whether you choose to link up or comment or simply share these posts far and wide, you are helping a child.  Thank you.

The donation page is up and running should you wish to contribute now.
