Shot@Life educates, connects, and empowers individuals to champion global vaccines as one of the most effective ways to save the lives of children in developing countries. The campaign rallies the public to advocate for global childhood vaccines (polio, measles, pneumonia and rotavirus). We believe that by encouraging people to learn about, advocate for, and donate to vaccines, we can decrease the 1.5 million annual vaccine-preventable childhood deaths and give every child a shot at a healthy life.


 Shot@Life is a grassroots advocacy campaign of the United Nations Foundation that champions global childhood immunization. We rally members of the public, members of Congress, businesses, and civil society partners — through public education, grassroots advocacy, and fundraising — to support and invest in the global childhood immunization programs of UNICEF, World Health Organization, and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. Shot@Life has over 350,000 supporters and 2,000 core grassroots advocates in all 50 states strive to decrease vaccine-preventable childhood deaths and give every child a shot at life no matter where they live. The website has a lot more information on it than I could possibly list here.

Ashley, who lives in Bangor, is the Champion Leader for Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. She leads and supports other champions from these states in their advocacy actions and congressional visits.
