About

It’s simple: parents should vaccinate their kids because science supports it. 

Why stickers? When parents make the decision to vaccinate their children, they should have a way to express that they feel confident and proud in the choice they made, just like wearing an “I voted today” sticker. And kids like stickers, too! It's a quick, easy and non-threatening way to say "I've chosen to protect our kids today." 

How will this work?  We will print and mail 50,000 stickers to pediatricians' offices across the US for parents and kids to wear after being vaccinated. Stickers will be mailed to pediatricians' offices with a letter explaining the intent of the project. The office will be provided with the sticker template (via email) for use when they run out of stickers (fingers crossed). What offices will receive stickers? That's where you come into play. 

Stickers will be mailed directly to your kid's pediatrician!

How can you help? As little as $10, and you will have the option to provide us with your child's pediatrician's name, office address and email. We will then mail your pediatrician a letter explaining the goal of the project, at least 100 stickers* to provide parents and patients, as well as the sticker template. Note: If you'd prefer to personally deliver the stickers to your pediatrician, we'd simply mail the letter and stickers to you. (You will be asked to provide your pediatrician's information via a quick survey after the project is closed.This is where you can indicate whether you'd like the letter to your pediatrician to include your name or not.)

Don't have kids, but still support vaccinating them? We'd gladly take your contributions, too. And if you'd like, we'd send stickers to your childhood pediatrician's office, your sister's kid's pediatrician's office, anyone really who vaccinates kids to get the stickers in play. 

Donate $25 or above, and your pediatrician will receive at least 100* stickers and the sticker template, and you'll receive a "Give Our Kids a Shot" tote bag. 

Donate $50 or above, and your pediatrician will receive at least 100* stickers and the sticker template, and you'll receive two "Give Our Kids a Shot" tote bags. 

* The amount of stickers provided to each pediatrician's office will be determined after the project has closed. Current numbers provided are estimates.

Each sticker sheet will include stickers for parents and kids.

Why Kickstarter?

  • A successful Kickstart will help our parents demonstrate to others that they feel confident in their decision to vaccinate their children.
  • A successful Kickstarter will help give a voice to the scientific side of this debate. (Which frankly isn't all that sexy right now, probably because our position relies primarily on boring old facts and scientific research.) 
  • A successful Kickstarter will demonstrate our commitment to ensuring proper scientifically sound care for our children and our country.

Please help us distribute 50,000 stickers to pediatricians to be handed out to parents and children after they've received a vaccine to prevent disease.  

Anything you can contribute will be much appreciated! Thank you for your support. 

Let's give our kids a shot.

Risks and challenges

It's mailing stickers to people in the US, not bio-medical research. However, we may run into people feeling this isn't enough. Of course it's not. Or, that it won't make a difference. But it could. It could motivate a few more parents to think twice about their stance against vaccinations. Let's at least give it a shot. Our kids deserve it.

Excess funds raised will be used to send more stickers to more offices around the US, and to develop a website where anyone can purchase "Give Our Kids a Shot" stickers, t-shirts, totes, etc.
