Today my lovely friend Chris is on the verge of a huge adventure.
In her own words in an email to be this week, she is “trying to pack, blog and be a mum and wife” in the midst of tearing her hair out. Because on Monday Chris is going on an amazing journey to Mozambique with Save the Children.
She has been invited along as part of their campaign to make a lot of noise ahead of the Global Vaccination Summit on June 13. The aim is to encourage the world’s leaders plug the vaccination funding gap.
They want a fair deal for children the world over.
All YOU have to do is sign their petition.
At the moment 1 in 5 children don’t receive any vaccinations whatsoever and millions are dying of preventable diseases as a result.
Chris’s journey is about trying to raise awareness of that.
On her travels, she will also be meeting mothers whose children have died of pneumonia, and as she has an asthmatic child who has had the pneumonia vaccine herself, this will be a very personal journey for her.
So, this week’s theme is: I’m Grateful For . . .
You will read a lot of posts about this event over the coming weeks, be asked to pass on the news, support their work.
And it’s really really easy to have your eyes glaze over, click ‘close’ and move on.
Don’t do that.
Support Chris and the rest of the team who are only doing all of this to help children.
I’ve just been over and signed now . . . it only takes a few seconds.
And then go give Chris a virtual hug: She is the most lovely and talent blogger and this will be a HUGE for her.
(You could then also go and give her some travel advice as she hasn’t flown for 15 YEARS!)
Good luck Chris x
