If we are not our brother’s keeper, who is? More than 17,000 children are dying each day because they lack access to vaccines.

GAVI, the global alliance for vaccines and immunization, is working very hard to ensure that the world’s poorest have access to vaccine to immunize children against the leading causes of child mortality.

If you do not step up and help in this effort, who will? We are not “passengers on planet Earth”; we are all part of the crew. Please stop and think for one minute about so many children dying and check out GAVI.org.  Maybe you’ll see some way in which you can help.
