Give a little…get a lot

Believe in zero. That is the motto UNICEF has adopted. Reduce the zero the number of children who die each day from preventable causes. We’d like you to take a moment this holiday season and reflect on how fortunate we are and maybe take just a few dollars that would be spent on something we don’t really need, and give them to a cause that will make you feel good all winter long. You can visit our CoachDeck UNICEF site and give. A gift of as little as $10.00 will immensely help the most worthy of causes.

From Carolyn Stern, President and CEO, US Fund for UNICEF:

This has been a rough year for the world’s children.

A tsunami in Japan. More cholera in Haiti. And now, a famine like no other in recent history, potentially crippling an entire generation of children in the Horn of Africa.

And yet, time and time again, you responded to pleas for help, giving generously when these children needed you the most.

As we’re ending the year, I want you to know that you made an immense impact in addressing the numerous tragedies that have befallen children worldwide.

This past year, the number of children dying from preventable causes dropped to 21,000 a day. That could not have happened without your support – so thank you.

Despite this hard-won progress, there are still 21,000 children who will die today from preventable causes. You and I, and the entire community of UNICEF supporters believe that number should be ZERO. To get there, the world’s children need more people like you. I’m hoping that you’ll share with us what motivated you to give, in the hopes that it will convince others to do the same.
