Your UNICEF donation doubled today

A few days ago we posted an urgent message from UNICEF CEO Caryl M. Stern about the major initiative for money to bring clean water to children in need. We provided a link to the CoachDeck UNICEF microsite where you can contribute. If you didn’t have a chance to chip in then, today is even better because, today only, an anonymous donor has pledged to match any donations dollar for dollar, up to $50,000. Read the message from UNICEF below:

Today could be a turning point for sick children desperate for clean water.

An anonymous donor has just pledged to MATCH all donations up to $50,000 – BUT ONLY until midnight tonight.

This is huge news and couldn’t come at a more critical moment. Clean water crises in Pakistan, Syria and Central Africa mean thousands of sick children will die without more help. UNICEF is responding to these emergencies, delivering lifesaving supplies, but a massive funding gap means that many children who are in danger will not be reached. In many cases, these children will have no choice but to continue drinking water contaminated with garbage and excrement.

FOR TODAY ONLY – Every single donation will be DOUBLED. This is such a critical moment for children dying from lack of clean water. Please help.

What you do in the next 24 hours could mean the difference between life and death for a child.
