Welcome to Blogust 2014!
Can a comment or share make a difference? With Blogust, it can. Each day we will bring you a personal story about Happy and Healthy Firsts. Every time you comment on or share the Blogust posts, Walgreens will help provide a life-saving vaccine for children around the world who need them most.
Blogust is a month-long digital dialogue, bringing more than 25 of the most beloved online writers, photo and video bloggers and Shot@Life champions together to help change the world through their words and imagery.
Each day we will bring you a personal story about Happy and Healthy Firsts. The Blogust contributors will participate in a blog relay, with one blogger posting each week day and a Shot@Life champion posting each Saturday for the month of August 2014.
Comments and shares count!
Make an impact. Join the conversation. Every time you comment on or share the Blogust posts, Walgreens will help provide a life-saving vaccine (up to 60,000) for children around the world who need them most.
During the 2012 Mom 2.0 Summit, a comment was made during one of the sessions that changed the way the Shot@Life campaign looked at our work. Liz Gumbinner, author of Mom 101 said “Comments are our currency”. We took that to heart and decided we were going to start an initiative that brought together some of the top voices in the space who cared about the issue of vaccines for children around the world; and Blogust was born!
Thirty-one incredible bloggers joined the first Blogust team in August 2012. Comments to the Blogust posts unlocked donations to help save more than 11,000 lives! Last year, thanks to the generous support of our sponsor, Walgreens, we set a goal of 50,000 vaccines and the community responded- commenting and sharing to generate more than 36,000!
