The past couple of Augusts I’ve participated in Shot@Life’s Blogust campaign by tweeting the #Blogust hashtag, and by sharing stories like this one about Princess Facing The World Head On.
During Shot@Life’s Blogust 2015—a month-long blog relay—some of North America’s most beloved online writers, photo and video bloggers and Shot@Life Champions come together and share inspirational quotes for their children. Every time you comment on this post and other Blogust contributions, or take action using the social media on this website, Shot@Life and the United Nations Foundation pages, one vaccine will be donated to a child around the world (up to 50,000).
Every day I remind my family that we have to be the change we want to see in the world around us. It’s up to us to stand for what we believe in, to go against the grain, to be the change that we want to see in the world, even when it’s not the easy or popular choice.
The quote that stands out, and speaks to my heart is this one, by Jane Goodall:

Every single day we make hundreds, if not thousands of choices, and each of those choices ripples out from us and affects the people around us.
So, every single day, I try to choose what kind of difference I make with my attitude, my giving, my volunteering, my time, my smile, and the choice to stand up for what I believe in. I have to set the example for my kids, because my choices, my actions speak loudly and are the example my kids will mimic.
Last year, I set a personal goal of 200 comments = 200 vaccines donated on behalf of A Southern Fairytale and YOU made it happen!
This year, I’m challenging us to BEAT that goal and donate 300 life saving vaccines! We can do this!!! For each comment on this post, one life saving vaccine is donated to a child in need.
You can use the sharing buttons above and below to share this post with your friends and that action will also result in one life saving vaccine donated to a child in need!
