Miss A Columnist

Jessica Peace-Urgelles is the Outreach Director for Miss A. She first and foremost, a mom to a very handsome and intelligent little boy and a frenchie named Escobar. She is addicted to social good and connecting people to charitable causes.

She grew up in the hills of southeastern Kentucky, and loves all things related to the Bluegrass State. They take pride in horses, basketball, and bourbon, but she likes porch swings and sweet tea too! She is torn between her love of cowboy boots and designer heels, and is always wearing at least one strand of pearls. Her heart is equally content enjoying a night out in the city or a weekend away getting dirty on the farm. She has a thick southern accent and is notorious for using it to her advantage. Her competing interests led her to write her blog, Blog of a Bluegrass Belle about growing up Southern, people dear to herheart, and herlove of various causes.

She is a member of the Bluegrass Junior Womans Club. BJWC is a non-profit whose focus is helping underprivileged women, children, and families in central Kentucky. Her work with BJWC led her to the United Nations Foundation Shot@Life campaign where she became a Champion and passionate advocate. She believes every child deserves a shot at a healthy life through global vaccine access.

Did you ever question if your comments on a topic really counted?  Walgreens would like to give you a shot at making all your comments on the Blogust blog roll count.  The United Nations Foundation Shot@Life campaign is dedicated to advocating for potentially life saving vaccine access to children who need them the most.  Blogust 2013 features 31 bloggers, telling 31 stories.  Walgreens has generously offered to donate up to 50,000 vaccines to children in need through the United Nations Foundation Shot@Life campaign.  Every time someone comments on a Blogust blog post, they will donate one vaccine.  Could it be any easier?

Blogust 2012 surpassed their goal of 10,000 comments and helped to provide potentially life saving vaccines to 10,000 children.  They have a much loftier but achievable goal of 50,000 vaccines.
