Team ImmUNITY

LOVE ALL SERVE ALL

Welcome to the team! Your voice and your support can change a child’s life forever. Use these tools to become a part of this team and Shot@Life.

Shot@Life educates, connects and empowers Americans to champion vaccines as one the most cost effective ways to save the lives of children in developing countries. Through individual support and partnership, we can save a child’s life every 20 seconds by expanding access to vaccines. Each one of us can become a beacon of light to decrease vaccine-preventable deaths and give children a “shot” at a healthy life.

QUICK FACTS!!!!

  • Over 22 million infants remain unimmunized in the world each year (WHO-UNICEF).
  • 1 in 5 children do not have access to childhood immunizations in developing countries (UN Foundation).
  • Two of the most common causes of child deaths: pneumonia and diarrhea-can largely prevented by existing vaccines (UN Foundation).
  • Every 20 seconds, a child dies of a disease that can be prevented by a vaccine (UN Foundation).
  • Vaccinating one child and protecting from pneumonia, diarrhea, polio and measles is achieved through $20 (UN Foundation).
  • Treatment costs for one child who falls ill from vaccine-preventable diseases can reach $100 or more (WHO-UNICEF).
  • Infectious diseases know no boundaries and do not need a passport to travel. An epidemic of measles or re-introduction of polio is essentially one plane ride away from America.

 

 HOW CAN YOU HELP??

  • You can donate going through this website. Look for Donate Now tab.

 

  • The UN foundation is a nonprofit 501(c) organization [EIN/tax ID number: 582368165]. Your donations are fully tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law. Shot@life is a UN Foundation Campaign.

 

YOUR HELP AND SUPPORT CAN MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE!!

 

  • With your donation, children receiving immunizations will experience the “firsts” of childhood- a first smile, first tooth, first day of school. These are moments we celebrate as parents, but moments many children around the world don’t experience because they do not have access vaccine.

 

  • In our increasingly connected world, we must build on this momentum to ensure vaccine coverage and access continues to grow.

 

  • Your help and support will make a big difference to eliminate and eventually eradicate vaccine-preventable diseases from the globe.

 

  • You can get involved and become a champion for global vaccines by talking to family members, friends, church groups, private organizations and Member(s) of the Congress to advocate for increased support of the program. Just remember-it is only $20 to save a Child and have a shot at a healthy life! YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR LIFE. Your voice, your time and your support can change a child’s life forever!!             

Let us kick start our New Year 2014 by GIVING!
