One of the things I do as a Shot@Life Champion is raise awareness of health disparities that affect children and families around the world. Did you know that 1.5 children die every year from diseases that could have been prevented from vaccines? Shot@Life is one organization that works to end this disparity by raising awareness and funds. During the month of August, or Blogust, you will have the chance to join a month long digital dialogue. 31 of the most influential bloggers will be sharing the stories of 31 children growing up.
For every comment on the posts, Walgreens will donate a life saving vaccine (up to 50,000 vaccines) to give children around the world a chance at living a healthy life. Your comments count!
Check out this video to learn more about Blogust.
