Bloom + Grace is proud to partner with the United Nation Foundation’s Shot@Life Campaign to bring lifesaving vaccinations to the children who need them most. The Shot@Life campaign is a globally recognized 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
Around the world, a child dies every 20 seconds from a disease that can be prevented by a vaccine. Yet one in five children does not have access to the vaccines needed to survive. Vaccines are safe, simple, and one of the most cost-effective ways to save and improve the lives of children worldwide. Immunization has saved the lives of more children than any other medical invention in the last 50 years and expanding access to vaccines can prevent an additional 1.5 million deaths each year.
Bloom + Grace wants to give its customers the power to change these statistics and improve lives. When children begin life with the protection of vaccines, the door is opened for their growth and development and they being the path to be productive, healthy adults. For this reason, we have partnered with leaders in the field of childhood vaccinations – Shot@Life.
Shot@Life works to educate, connect, and empower Americans to champion vaccinations as one of the most cost-effective ways to save the lives of children in developing countries. Shot@Life supports the work of partners who are already saving lives and improving the health of millions of children around the world ever day. Its implementing partners – which include the World Health Organization, UNICEF, and the Global Alliance for Vaccinations (Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance) - have a proven track record in vaccine advocacy in the United States and abroad. Their work has already contributed to a 99% reduction in polio, a 78% reduction in measles-related deaths, and the introduction of vaccines that prevent the primary causes of pneumonia and diarrhea, the two leading causes of childhood mortality.
