BENEFITING: U.S. Fund for UNICEF
EVENT DATE: Jun 24, 2014
On behalf of Messi's birthday i decided to orginaize this fundraiser in order to raise money to help childern all around the world.
Since Leo is gonna be busy this summer with the World Cup and he will not have any time to do his anual charity work i thought it was a good idea to orginaize this in honor of birthday and to help his charity.
On 11 March 2010 Messi was announced as a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF. Messi's UNICEF ambassador activities are aimed at supporting children’s rights. Messi is supported in this by Barcelona, who also have a strong association with UNICEF.
Despite impressive strides in child survival, some 19,000 children under the age of 5 die every day from causes such as pneumonia, diarrhoea and measles. These deaths do not have to happen.
Child deaths have fallen dramatically, plummeting from nearly 12 million in 1990 to 6.9 million in 2011. Progress has been made because the world has not only the knowledge and technology to reach the most vulnerable children with such life-saving interventions as new vaccines and improved healthcare practices, but also the resolute determination of many development actors and members of the international community to save children’s lives.
“We all can help to stop child deaths from preventable causes.”
Myself at lionelandresmessi.co.vu and with the help of all his amazing and devoted fans, hope we can raise enough money for this imporant campaign.
Thank you so much!
