Thoughtful Thursday: Take a Shot at Life

Have you participated in Blogust yet?   No, not Festivus, this is Blogust, a relay of blog posts, one per day for the month of August. For every comment on any of the 31 posts, a $20 donation will be made to Shot@Life (up to $200,000).  It is an amazing initiative by the Shot at Life campaign to raise funds that will get immunizations for children in developing countries.

Sadly, one child dies every 20 seconds from a disease that could be prevented with a vaccine. By expanding access to vaccines, 1.5 million child deaths can be prevented each year.

We  can make a difference.  Just go to http://shotatlife.org/blog/ and leave a comment on the blogs that have been written so far this month.  You can find the entire schedule at http://shotatlife.org/blogust/blogust-all.html.  So after you link up here, we are all going to head over and leave comments, okay?  Good.

Cannot wait to see what you have for us this week? Link it up!

  1. Jessica, it was nice meeting you at BlogHer, even just briefly! I met the Shot@Life reps too and it is a very inspiring project. I have visiting the blogs on my daily “to-do” list.
