Monday marked the end of the fourth annual Blogust, a month-long blog relay that brought together more than 50 of North America’s most beloved online writers, photo and video bloggers and Shot@Life Champions to share inspirational quotes for their children on their blogs and social platforms. Each like, comment or share of their posts resulted in the donation of a vaccine to children around the world.

For the fourth year in a row, The Motherhood partnered with the UN Foundation and Shot@Life to lead the initiative. After surpassing our original goal of 50,000 vaccine donations three weeks into the program, sponsor Project Perpetual agreed to increase the goal to 60,000.

Today we can share that the final tally of likes, comments and shares brought us to 61,862! Thanks to all the amazing hard work of this year’s Blogust team, Project Perpetual will be donating 60,000 vaccines to children globally.

In case you missed it, the theme for this year was inspiring quotes. Each day, two or three bloggers posted a quote that inspired them and asked their readers to like, comment and share. The Motherhood has gathered a few of our favorites here:
