Shot@Life Takes Off to Uganda!
October 23, 2012 BY Maggie Carter
Today, I am about to board a plane and take off with the first-ever delegation of Shot@Life Champions. We’re on our way to Uganda to help tell the Shot@Life story and show the immunization successes in Uganda and the amazing work of our partners at UNICEF.
When I look at the group of women I’m traveling with I get excited thinking about this journey we’re about to embark on together. Let me introduce the crew:
This trip to Uganda is going to be an emotional one; we’ll get to see the impact of the great work we’re doing with Shot@Life, we’ll see the need for more funding and access to health care and vaccines, and ideally, we’ll return from Uganda inspired to share the stories of the families we meet and empowered to stand up and advocate for them.
Thanks for all of your support along our journey. Check here for blog posts, videos, photos and more updates from the trip. Follow along on Twitter at #VaccinesWork!
Until next time,
P.S. There’s a lot of excitement going on with the Shot@Life Campaign while I’m gone and you can be a part of it! There is a lot you can be doing at home to help push out some key moments – starting tomorrow on World Polio Day. Check out this online activity guide for something you can do each day.
