Thank you so much to everyone who has bought a copy of The Measly Virus! The feedback so far has been amazing and humbling with parents from all over the world telling me that their children have been inspired to be brave and have their needles to protect their friends and family.
And now I want to do more to spread the ‘superheroes vaccinate’ message!
I am in the process of setting up a Crowdfunding Campaign with the aim of reaching kids and families who, for one reason or another, are unlikely to ever see The Measly Virus through the normal distribution channels. My aspiration is to donate a copy of the book to every primary school, children’s health clinic, doctor’s waiting room and child-related establishment that I possibly can, to help spread the word that herd immunity is incredibly important and that people who vaccinate are superheroes.
But I need your help...
I am asking for help from the community in two ways – firstly for funding to support the purchasing and distribution of books worldwide, and secondly for nominations of specific clinics, schools, nurseries, day care centers, clubs and other child hang-outs that would benefit from a copy of The Measly Virus. I have set up an online form that anyone can use to nominate a book beneficiary, which can be anywhere in the world! Once I have raised sufficient funds (and ensured the validity of the destinations provided) I will send The Measly Virus to the nominated recipients on the register – it’s that easy!
So if you believe that community immunity is an important concept to teach our children and would like to help, please consider donating to this cause and nominating your local school, doctor’s surgery, playgroup, hospital, etc. as a beneficiary. Please help me create as many opportunities as possible to instill a strong sense of community spirit and improve vaccination awareness for our kids.
