About Blogust

Blogust is a month-long digital dialogue bringing 31 of the most influential online writers together to help change the world through their words. The 31 Blogust bloggers will participate in a blog relay, with one blogger posting each day for the month of August 2013.  Every comment they receive to their posts throughout the month will trigger a donation by Walgreens to provide a vaccine for a child in need around the world.

31 Days, 31 children, 31 stories of growing up. 

Vaccines promise a lifetime of milestones well beyond infancy.  Every day in August, an influential mom or dad will share a story about a young person who is important in their life or an experience of their own at a certain age. On August 1, a 1-year-old’s story will be shared; on August 2, a 2-year-old; and so on, every day throughout the month.

You have the ability to make a real impact by joining the conversation. For every comment on any of the 31 posts, Walgreens will donate a life-saving vaccine (up to 50,000 vaccines) to give children around the world a shot at life.

Thirty-one incredible bloggers joined the first Blogust team in August 2012. Comments to the Blogust blog posts unlocked donations to help save lives. Each day, one Blogust blogger posted his or her personal story and invited their community to share thoughts in the comments so that funds could be donated to Shot@Life.

Blogust 2012 was a definitive success - more than 11,000 comments flooded in, surpassing our goal of 10,000 comments. This translated into life-saving vaccines for 10,000 kids around the world.
