1917-Valentines-Poster-v04-JH.pngShot@Life, UNA-USA's partner campaign to give all children a shot at a healthy life, is gearing up for a great February campus challenge!

Twenty-eight campuses participated in the fall campus challenge- 60 Vaccines in 60 Days- hosting 8 meetings with congressional offices, placing over 50 phone calls to Congress and collectively raising over $10,000, all in support of global vaccines, specifically to protect children against pneumonia.  

Shot@Life is a campaign of the United Nations Foundation that educates, connects and empowers Americans to champion vaccines as one of the most cost-effective ways to save lives of children in developing countries. During the month of February, UNA-USA campus chapters will rally to raise their voices and funds during the Give a Little Love campus challenge in support of measles vaccines. Each day, nearly 330 children around the world die from measles- a vaccine preventable disease- and we need your campus to help.

Shot@Life will provide each participating campus with posters to advertise, Valentine’s to sell, and stickers to give away. Each campus will be required to contact Congress to share their support for global vaccines and must fundraise a minimum of $214 in honor of Valentine’s Day- 2/14! The campus to raise the most funds by Feb. 28 will be awarded a $214 grant to support their efforts in our fall campus challenge and will be offered support from Shot@Life staff in planning their engagement for the fall.

 

The first step in participating is to register for our kick-off webinar on Wednesday, January 21 from 8pm to 9pm ET. If you can’t make it, ask a friend to join or let us know your interest so we can make arrangements for you to participate.
