Our last day of the summit started with an overview of the day. Initially this campaign was a no-brainer in terms of educating others and promoting the campaign. I never imagined the possible obstacles endured based on the lack of knowledge surrounding vaccines. We were fortunate to receive a Vaccines 101 presentation which was not only informative but an education lesson in itself. As a mom of two children, I always followed my vaccine schedule from birth with both of the my children. It was never a second thought to do otherwise in terms of protecting my children’s health. I am so blessed to have two healthy children and as I learned over the course of the summit children in developing countries are not lucky enough to have the privileges afforded to our children.
We also received a presentation on advocacy, utilizing the media and event planning. It was great to learn about the influence of media on this campaign and our fundraising efforts. We also brainstormed on ideas for celebrating the 1yr birthday of Shot@Life as well other fundraising ideas. I believe the collective efforts of the Shot@Life team will make this a very inspiring and fun-filled year and I look forward to educating my children on Shot@Life.
As a blogger, I have such an amazing network to promote this campaign and am excited to be part of this wonderful way to make a difference. The best part of the summit was the opportunity to meet people from across the country and the ability to exchange goals and ideas. I think there were definitely relationships formed as we are connected through either our blogs or social media outlets.
The next time you are thinking of a great campaign to support, think of Shot@Life. If you are interested in being a champion for Shot@Life, drop me an email for more information.
