Although most families have been lead to believe that childhood vaccines are mandatory in Canada, they are not, and giving a child a shot requires the parents to provide the doctor or nurse with informed consent. Unfortunately, the majority of parents are saying "yes" to vaccines without actually being informed about the real risks and benefits of either the vaccine in question or the associated disease.
My goal in 2009 is to create an information website for parents that will not preach a position either for or against vaccination, as all current vaccine websites do, rather it will provide easy to understand, accurate and complete statistics so parents actually can feel like they are making the best decision for their child.
Please vote for my project "vaccine awareness - donnabarker" to help me win $1000 to get the website developed and online. Thank you!
About a year ago I started a project to write some e-books targeted to the non-profit sector. To start, I developed an online survey to identify which topics would be most interesting to people who work and volunteer in the sector. I got great info from that survey.
