02 Dec Share a Shot for Giving Tuesday
Just in time for #GivingTuesday I want to share with you a creative new way to help give your voice and your talent, to give kids a shot at the happy healthy life they deserve. My friend and fellow Shot@Life champion Ciaran Blumenfeld have come up with a way to share our “snaps” to help spread the word about the “shots” that so many kids need to protect them from the preventable diseases that have the potential to kill them. Imagine if you thought you might lose your children to a common childhood illness like diarrhea. I know. I can’t imagine either! Because we don’t think any mother should suffer the loss of a child at all, let alone from a preventable disease, we need your help.
Please help us bring awareness to the important work that Shot@Life is doing by tagging your Instagram / Facebook / Twitter / Pinterest “snaps” with the hashtag #snapshotatlife. Take it a small step further and mention our Instagram account as well (@snapshotatlife) so people can follow along and more importantly easily find the link to our Snapshotatlife team fundraising page where we are collecting donations to support the cause and vaccinate the kids who are at the greatest risk of dying from diseases like Rotavirus, Pneumonia, Measles and Polio. Won’t you join the team?
And speaking of donations, I am giddy to share something amazing! Ciaran is donating $500 to Shot@Life on behalf of the Snapshotatlife team. Yes, $500! You have got to pop over to read her Smile it Forward post. How crazy awesome and super generous is that? Talk about giving us something to smile about. $500 translates to 25 kids immunized for life! Amazing and totally inspiring. Thank you Ciaran (and Invisalign).
All that to say, I hope you consider shooting and sharing your “snaps” with us by tagging your everyday pictures (of family, friends moments and memories) with the tag #snapshotatlife and on this fine Giving Tuesday consider giving What you can to help immunize a child who deserves to live a happy. healthy life. We’ll be sharing photos, raising awareness and funds for the rest of 2013. Help us make a difference!
