Small Donations To Vaccine Programs Can Make Big Differences In Lives Of Children, Families

CNN: Giving Tuesday: The new Black Friday?
Melinda Gates, co-chair and trustee of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

“…Just as there’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday for finding great shopping deals, there’s now #GivingTuesday for anyone who is feeling grateful this time of year and wants to share a bit of their good fortune with those in need. One of the best ways we’ve found to do that is to contribute to the U.N. Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign. For just a few dollars, you can provide life-saving vaccines to children in the poorest countries. … Bill and I believe that vaccines are one of the real miracles of modern medicine. Over the last 50 years, they have saved more lives than any other medical innovation. … No matter how much you decide to donate, giving a child a shot at a healthy life is one of the most meaningful gifts you can give this holiday season…” (12/2).
