Meghan Markle & Prince Harry invite donations for Vaccine Equity to mark Archie's 2nd Birthday

Through a post on their Archewell Foundation website, Meghan and Harry are asking members of the community to consider making donations to Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, to honour Archie's second birthday.

Harry and Meghan posted:

This year, our world continues to be on the path to recovery from COVID-19. Yet too many families are still struggling with the impact of this pandemic. While some places are on the verge of healing, in so many parts of the world, communities continue to suffer. As of today, around 80 percent of the nearly one billion COVID-19 vaccine shots that have been given were administered in wealthier countries. 

While we may feel that normalcy is around the corner, we remind ourselves that in much of the world, and especially in developing countries, vaccine distribution has effectively yet to start.

We will not be able to truly recover until everyone, everywhere, has equal access to the vaccine. 

They continue:

We cannot think of a more resonant way to honor our son’s birthday. If we all show up, with compassion for those we both know and don’t know, we can have a profound impact. Even a small contribution can have a ripple effect. Together, we can uplift, protect, and care for one another.

As part of this initiative, Meghan and Harry and Global Citizen have secured matching donations of up to $3 million. That means if you give $5, it will turn into $20, which is the amount needed to fund four vaccine doses.
