I love children. I love my kid. I love my niece and I love the 14 little monkeys I teach each day. I also happen to love our cousins in India and their friends. I have friends from Mexico, Brazil, Africa, etc and I love THEIR kids and their cousins, too! I love kids. I even love kids I don't know....except for those noisy ones at restaurants....oh wait-that is MY kid!
With this love comes the hope that all children have access to the necessary vaccines for a healthy life. I know we can not protect all children from everything, though I wish I could. What I also know is there is NO reason we can't protect them from preventable diseases! For $20 we can vaccinate a child in a third world country from the very worst diseases-the number one killers!
$20! I spend $20 on T once a week! I spend $20 on my classroom all the time! I spend $20 on books.....well, let me stop here because N might be reading this!
I am not asking you for $20, but I am asking you to sign the United Nation Foundation's Shot At Life pledge. Let's get the word out about global vaccinations!
