In 2013, Mother's Day falls on Sunday, May 12, and this year UNICEF ambassador for immunisation Jimmy Barnes believes the best way to honour Aussie mums is to give them measles.
Measles claim 430 lives daily, 18 in the next hour alone. Young children are most at risk. Choose to give your mum measles and send 200 vaccines across the world to reach children where the threat of the disease is highest.
Giving your mum measles on Mother’s Day is the easiest gift to give and one that has the potential to deliver a big impact. “Go on, give your mum measles,” says Barnes. “It’s the spot-on way to make your mum proud. She’ll love it. Promise.”
