Mission Statement

The United Nations Foundation builds public-private partnerships to address the world’s most pressing problems, and broadens support for the United Nations through advocacy and public outreach. Through innovative campaigns and initiatives, the Foundation connects people, ideas, and resources to help the UN solve global problems. The Foundation was created in 1998 as a U.S. public charity by entrepreneur and philanthropist Ted Turner and now is supported by global corporations, foundations, governments, and individuals. For more information, visitwww.unfoundation.org .

Shot@Life builds on the UN Foundation’s 13-year legacy in global vaccine efforts to educate, connect and empower Americans to champion vaccines as one of the most cost-effective ways to save the lives of children in developing countries. A national call to action for a global cause, the campaign rallies the American public, members of Congress, and civil society partners around the fact that together, we can save a child’s life every 20 seconds by expanding access to vaccines. By encouraging Americans to learn about, advocate for, and donate to vaccines, Shot@Life aims to decrease vaccine-preventable childhood deaths and give every child a shot at a healthy life.


Shot@Life Champions gain the skills and experience you needed to be effective advocates within their communities and make their voices heard among policymakers to protect children worldwide by providing life-saving vaccines where they are needed most.

Shot@Life Champions commit to:

  • Build relationships with members of Congress so they remain committed to supporting global childhood immunization programs.
  • Be an ambassador for Shot@Life and advocate within your local communities and to your policymakers in support of global childhood immunization programs.
  • Raise awareness to help expand access to vaccines worldwide.
