BENEFITING: UNICEF USA
I turn 30 in a matter of days. It's a big birthday, and I'd like to do something positive with the attention I will receive with its arrival. My friends have always been generous, and I want to harness that generosity for a most important cause. We're all aware of the emergency situation in Syria and the surrounding countries which have become sought places of refuge. We saw the earthquakes that shook Nepal a few months ago. Over 8,000 were killed. Over a million children's lives have been affected by destroyed homes, waterborne disease, malnutrition, and lost parents. It's easy to feel helpless in the face of such devastation and crisis. Together, we can help a little.
It's tradition to buy a girl a drink on her birthday, but this year, I'd much prefer you donate a few dollars to UNICEF. They'll use it to keep up the good work they're doing to bring these children, and those around the world, safety and support.
