Did you know that the world is almost polio free? We are so close to ending this disease forever. The UN Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign is a movement to protect children world wide by providing life-saving vaccines where they are most needed.
Each August, the Shot@Life community floods the internet with “Blogust” – a month-long conversation amongst writers, photographers, and Shot@Life Champions to bring awareness to this critical cause and unlock vaccine donations in the easiest way you can imagine! This year your social media actions (likes, shares, comments) on Blogust posts will unlock donations of polio vaccines in some of the world’s toughest to reach places.
Participating in #Blogust couldn’t be easier! When you comment on, like, or share Blogust posts, Project Perpetual helps provide a polio vaccine, making it more likely that a child will reach their 5th birthday and have a better Shot at Life. In just a few minutes you can unlock dozens of vaccines.
This year’s theme focuses on inspirational quotes. Here are just a few of our favorites.
