Just a few minutes ago, the US announced at a big global conference just how much it will pledge to fund childhood vaccines. And guess what?
They’ve pledged exactly what we asked for: 1 billion dollars over the next 4 years. That means we’re a whole lot closer to saving 6 million kids’ lives.
Write a comment to say thanks and we’ll make sure to share it with the White House right away.
We’re not gonna lie – we really didn’t know how this was going to turn out. You sent thousands of tweets, made thousands of phone calls (the White House operators started recognizing us), even sent photos of your kids and loved ones to the White House’s Instagram feed. And they heard us.
So thank you for stepping up and making sure kids in some of the world’s poorest countries will get access to life-saving vaccines through Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. Thank you for using your voice for cost-effective programs that we know work. And get ready for our next big push – to make sure Congress starts approving this pledge to help save millions of lives.
