Shot at life — World Immunization Week

Today, I am working with Nicole Morgan of Sisters from Another Misterto talk about Shot at Life for World Immunization Week.  She has asked me, along with 19 other bloggers, to help raise awareness for this fantastic program.  The goal is to have A Mothers day meme link up opening on May 8th and running until the 18th.

Heres what Nicole had to Say:

Sharing our stories to raise awareness for global vaccinations because
every child deserves a shot@life

This week is World Immunization week,
the perfect time to talk about the importance of global vaccinations.
As many of you know, I went to Washington DC as a Champion for shot@life.
You can read about it here.

Sisters from Another Mister in DC for shot@life

I was blessed to meet up with  an incredible group of women all flown there by
shot@life and the United Nations Foundation.
They looked beyond themselves to see what they could do in the world …
It made my heart happy and I felt in just the right place hugging and
squeeing (totally a word) with the many I already knew & counted as friends.
But I knew that I had more friends, just like these …
changemakers, women with huge hearts and delightful prose.
And so this idea was born and we invite you to join us on this journey.
And just who are WE? And what is this quest?

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

It gives me great pleasure to introduce you to these amazing twenty bloggers.
I am proud to say that I consider each and every one of them a friend.

When I called in this favor, not one of these huge hearted women hesitated.
In spite of their very busy lives, they signed up for this cause in a heartbeat.
I hope that you find it in your heart to do the same!

May 8th, each picture will take you to the posts on these 20 bloggers own blogs.
Set aside some BIG chunks of time over those ten days – they are a fab group of writers.
You will want to share them all!
