The Best Shot Foundation raises public awareness of the scope and destructiveness of global childhood diseases and builds political will to fund child survival.
Best Shot is developing several initiatives, including a special project to reach people where many are at their most noble of spirit – in their houses of worship. Although nonpartisan and nonreligious, the Best Shot Foundation will engage and mobilize faith-based communities, building on the shared conviction that “Every Child Is God’s Child.”
To raise awareness and build support for protecting vulnerable children, Best Shot spotlights pneumonia. The deadliest killer of young children, its lethality is hidden, even though it is easily preventable and curable.
The Best Shot Foundation is working alongside leaders in this area, and we use complementary approaches to reach our shared goals.
Although the Best Shot Foundation is organizationally young, it has gathered some important resources: its energetic board is headlined by ex-New Mexico governor Bill Richardson and its national spokesperson is football legend Steve Young; it receives advice and support from an extensive group of talented and generous individuals of varying backgrounds; and it has access to leaders in the Congressional, international health, and faith communities on which it will rely.
