As a mother of three, and passionate vaccine advocate, I am excited to join other mothers, global leaders and celebrities onstage at the 2016 Moms+Social Good event in New York City on May 5. Moms+Social Good serves as the kick off to the annual Global Moms Relay which benefits five charities including Shot@Life.
Last year, I participated in the Global Moms Relay by sharing photos and thoughts from my trip to Kenya with Shot@Life. It was in Kenya that I saw firsthand the power of global childhood immunizations and the lengths mothers would go to access these basic vaccines for their children. The question for the 2016 Relay is: “What do you wish were true for every child, everywhere?” I have so many hopes and dreams for our world’s children, but most importantly I wish that all children, no matter where they live, have the opportunity to grow up happy and healthy.
You don’t have to be in New York on May 5 to answer this question and join the conversation. Watch the event via livestream and join the conversation online using hashtag #GlobalMoms. And please remember to visit globalmomsrelay.org to read blog posts from the relay and share them on your social networks. Every time you share a post from Global Mom’s Relay via social media, Johnson & Johnson will unlock $1 to help improve the health and well-being of kids worldwide.
