Hi, everyone! This year I wanted to start a little early on my birthday celebrations by giving back first! I'd love to have you be a part of this, and you can do so just by letting me know or contributing what you can.
Life is challenging by default for so many groups of people around the world, and the impact of COVID-19 has hindered the amount of resources and support these people receive. While I would love to help every cause out there, I have chosen to focus on childhood vaccines and access to clean water this year. I hope you will consider donating to these causes, but if finances are a barrier and you still want to be a part of my birthday celebration, please send me a message and I will privately donate $1 on your behalf :)
Polio, measles, and tuberculosis vaccines are routine vaccinations that are intended to provide protection during youth and beyond. A lot of kids missed out on these vaccines from the disruption of COVID-19 and are at risk of being affected by these life-threatening diseases and viruses. I've chosen UNICEF to help me with this cause. A $125 donation will provide 200 TB vaccines, 200 polio vaccines, and 50 measles vaccines!
Access to water (and even clean water) is a resource too many of us take for granted, including myself. There are entire communities out there who rely on a few individuals to gather water from miles away (and here I am allowing myself to get dehydrated). I've chosen Oxfam to help provide relief for this cause. A $135 donation will allow for a local water pump to be installed in a village/community and help hundreds of people have clean access to water!
Thank you for reading this far and for any amount you are able to contribute towards these causes. You can find out more about these organizations and their charity gifts here (great for the holidays!):
