I didn’t quite get how I didn’t get the difference until someone asked what the difference was and I realized how stupid I sounded trying to explain something I really didn’t understand.
So, second time, I thought I had a better answer if the question came up again and NOPE….stupid again.
I finally asked the question and was fairly relieved to find that I wasn’t the only one clueless about how to explain why the role of “Social Good Fellow” and “Champion” was any different.
Social Good Fellowship DID NOT have hobbits or elves.
We did not get the ONE ring to control them all.
I was a little disappointed by that.
What I did learn was that the SGF was a much smaller group for the UN Foundation’s broad scale focus. Shot@Life Champions were a larger group, constantly added to, with a concentrated focus on the Shot@Life mission.
Champions — are essential to the growth of the Shot@Life movement by advocating for childhood vaccines in their communities. Champions host events, organize fundraisers, meet with the members of Congress, and raise awareness about the need for expanded access to childhood vaccines. Utilizing the tools and resources provided by Shot@Life, Champions find new and creative ways to grow the Shot@Life movement.
Social Good Fellows — It takes all nations and all sectors to make progress on the most important and far-reaching international challenges. We are an advocate for the UN and a platform for connecting people, ideas and resources to help the United Nations solve global problems. We build partnerships, grow constituencies, mobilize resources and advocate policy changes to support the UN’s work for individual and global progress.
I had strokes and thanks to the resources near me I made a recovery far better than expected.
In any of the countries I saw this weekend I know there would have been no recovery, no rehab, no miracle.
How can I not give my all to give those with nothing hope?
