I am proud to participate in getting the word out about the importance of immunizations during World Immunization Week April 20th-28th.

Did you know that:

Millions of children are disabled or killed every decade by preventable diseases like pneumonia, diarrhea, measles and polio. Pneumonia and diarrhea are the two biggest killers of children under five, and account for more than one-third of childhood deaths worldwide.

Seventy-five percent of unvaccinated children live in just 10 countries. For children in India, Nigeria, Pakistan, Indonesia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, China, Uganda, Chad and Kenya, access to vaccines mean the difference between life and death, a healthy life or a lifetime of struggle.

How do we fix this?

It’s simple; vaccines save lives. Millions of children could be spared from measles, pneumonia, diarrhea, polio and other preventable diseases if we could simply get them the vaccines they need.

Go to to get more information on how you can help save precious lives by donating a small amount to provide immunizations to children who need them. A $20 donation can vaccinate a child against 4 deadly childhood diseases.

We all can make a BIG difference is small ways.
