The Foundation's Logo
Vaccines are "miracles" that have saved millions of human lives and will continue to save millions more in the future.

The "V" sits right in the middle of the line. "V" is considered the strongest letter in the Roman alphabet. "V" stands for Victory, thanks to Winston Churchill. "V" is the newest letter in the alphabet, the Romans used U instead." Our thanks to Paul Soady and to fellow Australian designer Chris Davies at Shout Studio in L.A.
