I saved a child’s life.
Somewhere in the world, a child will live and a mom will get to enjoy her child growing up and experiencing all of life’s joys.
And that feels amazing–the empowering feeling of giving and of actually doing something.
I wish “give-itis” was contagious.
I wish “give-itis” was as deadly as some of the very diseases we are attacking through vaccines.
I wish you would break out into a fevered rush to help us save more children.
I wish you would contaminate 10 people with “give-itis” who would in turn contaminate even more people and get them rabidly desiring to save a child.
Together the UN Foundation’s Shot@Life Champions have helped save 15,000+ children’s lives so far in the nine months we’ve been campaigning.
But a million more children won’t be so lucky because it’s not enough.
If enough people and organizations would catch “give-itis” approximately 1.5 million children in developing countries would not die each year of a preventable disease like pneumonia, diarrhea, measles and polio.
The fact that we can prevent these deaths and aren’t makes me sick.
We could eradicate these diseases.
And the price of “give-it is” is only $20.
Just think if it was your child. Is your child’s life worth $20? I bet you think his or her life is priceless.
