BENEFITING: U.S. Fund for UNICEF
EVENT DATE: Oct 31, 2013
I turn 31 this year and I'm over the birthday party thing. There are so many people out there, children especially, that don't get to experience the joy of a birthday because they are sick, injured, etc. I have had enough birthday celebrations and I know that money can be used in better ways. For an idea of what this money can do please see below:
$10 can provide 321 sachets of Multiple Micronutrient Powder containing essential vitamins to give a powerful boost to infant survival and development.
$40 can provide a practical and easy to transport scale used to monitor children's weight.
$68 can buy 10,000 water purification tablets
$80 can provide 1000 sachets of Oral Rehydration Salts to help children combat dehydration.
$120 can immunize 171 children against polio disease for life;
$300 can provide enough packets of therapeutic nut spread to feed 193 malnourished children.
My goal is $300 but I would love to exceed that amount. I think it is possible. Help me help others. You'll feel great about it.
