Holly Pavlika, the President of MOMentum/Big Fuel and marketing to moms expert is in Tanzania this week with Shot@Life where she serves as a Shot@Life Champion. Shot@Life educates, connects and empowers Americans to champion vaccines as one of the most cost-effective ways to save children’s lives in developing countries. (Disclosure: Shot@Life is a partner Mom Bloggers for Social Good).
After overcoming a rough start to her journey in Africa Pavlika is now sharing poignant stories and social media updates as she visits clinics and sees the power of vaccinations for children in an area of the world where vaccines mean the difference between life and death for a child. Pneumonia and diarrhea are two of the leading causes of death for children under the age of five in developing countries.
“I will be traveling with a videographer and photographer and it will be our job to collect stories and information to be shared through social media channels and to share at an event in the fall,” Pavlika recently wrote on her blog.
