BENEFITING: UNICEF USA
My birthday is around the corner, and rather than getting a gift, I would love a donation to UNICEF to help with the relief efforts going on in the Philippines.
Typhoon Haiyan brought flash floods, landslides and immense destruction to the Philippines. The storm was one of the most powerful on record. Thousands have been killed, and 1.9 million people have been displaced, including nearly 800,000 children.
UNICEF estimates that more than 40 percent of the 12.9 million people affected by the storm are children — over 5 million may be at risk.
UNICEF has been mobilizing all of its available resources to reach these children immediately. In the Philippines, staff are rushing to deliver aid from prepositioned stock. UNICEF Supply Division is airlifting water purification tablets, medical kits, tarpaulins, nutrition supplements and other essential goods from its warehouse in Copenhagen.
UNICEF is doing so much to hellp! While we're in the community spirit, come out and join me for a get together. The place is yet to be determine (probably somewhere in the city). Check back for details!!
