To date we have assisted in responsibly allocating over $75,000 in supplies to vulnerable populations in Haiti: http://www.rebuildglobally.org/our-work/community-development/#sthash.AGYT1nWi.dpuf

Get a Shot. Give a Shot. The campaign is over, but I wanted to highlight a simple yet amazing partnership between Walgreens and the United Nations Foundation. They saw a need, and allowed you to partner with them in filling a need for you and others around the world that will have a much longer lasting effect on a person's life than a single pair of shoes.
