I'm Ready for the Champion Summit! #Shot@Life

I am so excited to depart on Sunday for Washington, DC, where I will participating as a delegate in the Shot@Life Champion Summit! The UN Foundation's Shot@Life Campaign educates, connects and empowers Americans to champion vaccines as one of the most cost-effective ways to save the lives of children in developing countries. I am elated to meet a new group of like-minded women who will be working together to take simple yet impactful steps towards reducing the mortality rate of children under by 2015. 

As I mentioned in a previous blog post, earlier this year, I was thinking of ways to give back as I turn the big 4-0 (on March 19!). Then the invitation to the Champion Summit arrived in my inbox. Coincidence? I view Shot@Life as my chance to give back just a little bit - for all the blessings that I've been gifted with these past 40 years on Planet Earth. I'll look forward to giving gifts on my 40th birthday rather than receiving. 

Check out the Shot@Life blog and join me as voice my support for global immunization programs. The 28 days of Impact posts have been especially touching. I just can't wait to get starting on my own journey with Shot@Life!
