Five years ago, Nicolette began volunteering with Shot@Life, an organization within the United Nations Foundation, that rallies the American public and members of Congress around the fact that together, we can save a child’s life every 20 seconds by expanding access to vaccines. Shot@Life educates, connects and empowers Americans to champion vaccines as one of the most cost-effective ways to save the lives of children in developing countries.

Currently, Shot@Life is partnered with Walgreens, for their annual Get a Shot, Give a Shot program, for every vaccine administered at a Walgreens clinic, one is donated to a child in need.
