Giving Tuesday: Give the Gift that change lives forever

What is it in a gift that makes everyone so excited and happy?  So happy that it makes them cry with joy and excitement?  A gift means that you are special!  It means that somebody cares about you!
Today is GivingTuesday, the perfect time to start the Holiday season of giving a gift to others.  A gift that is carefully selected with someone in mind has the power to change the receiver forever.  Especially if these gift can make the difference between the life and death of a child in need.  With this simple act of thinking of others rather than yourself, you are given others the precious give of life, happiness and love.  That is the power of a gift - it tells the receiver that someone cares and that they are loved.
Today I am supporting and fundraising for the Shot@Life campaign.  Shot@Life is a campaign of the United Nations Foundation that 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.
Can you help me this Holiday season to provide the gift of life and protection, for other children like these,from deadly diseases - like polio.   Polio used to cripple hundreds of children a day, but thanks to vaccines it is nearly eradicated! Today only, MAM Baby, a pacifier company, has agreed to DOUBLE your gift to Shot@Life by matching all donations dollar-for-dollar. We are raising money to protect a new generation of children from polio. We can stop this disabling disease in its tracks!
 Your gift to Shot@Life TODAY will be doubled. With a gift of $20 or more, you can protect at least 40 children from this debilitating disease.
