BENEFITING: U.S. Fund for UNICEF
Donate TODAY to support UNICEF's emergency relief efforts in Nepal!
In honor of our moms, grandmas, aunts, teachers and female role models, UNICEF's Young Ambassadors are psyched to launch our 2015 Making Moms Matter campaign to help children and families in Nepal, where a devastating 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck near the capital city of Kathmandu on April 25th.
The earthquake has claimed more than 5,000 lives, caused thousands of injuries, and destroyed homes and infrastructure. Some 1.7 million children require humanitarian assistance.
UNICEF is on the ground working to meet the immediate needs of children and families. Your support means making sure that kids are safe from harm and are able to quickly regain access to food, clean water, medicines, school and much more.

Our goal of $10,000 can provide family water kits for 655 families in Nepal. The kit provides essential supplies such as collapsible water containers, buckets with lids, bars of soap and water purification tablets to restore access to safe, clean water.
We hope that you will support our efforts this Mother's Day by making a gift to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to help us help children in Nepal survive and thrive!
The UNICEF Young Ambassadors program is an innovative initiative pioneered in Los Angeles that joins together over 40 students, ages 10-15, in fundraising, educating and advocating on behalf of UNICEF. In their communities, Young Ambassadors serve as a voice for the most vulnerable children who live in remote areas across the globe.
Since the program’s inception in 2013, the Young Ambassadors have raised nearly $200,000 in helping to eliminate Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus as well as support the development of Child-friendly Spaces in China. Last May, when a Nigerian rebel group abducted 276 school girls, the Young Ambassadors quickly mobilized nearly 300 young people to stand in solidarity, creating a social media blitz in support of the right to protection and education for all children across the globe.
