Just as getting together to eat turkey and watch football is traditional for millions of American families in November, it’s a tradition with runners to put their love of running to work for those in need. This holiday season, join us in running for the children whose lives have been devastated by in the Philippines by the recent earthquake and typhoon. It might be a specific timed event, like a Turkey Trot or a neighborhood run with friends, but you can make these runs count by supporting them with donations to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF which is directly providing emergency response and relief aid. Start now by clicking the FUNDRAISE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN button and set up a fundraising page to share with family and friends or donate to someone who’s running.
Any amount you can donate or fundraise will help or use the suggested donations below and see how your funds will work for these desperate families:
$26 - First Aid Kit, which contains a remarkable amount of practical equipment for treating cuts, minor burns and infections. With this kit, anyone, regardless of health training, can treat a small wound and protect a child from deadly infection.
$50 – Fleece Blankets for 8 children. Sound like a simple item, but this sturdy cloak of fleece can be the difference between survival and suffering when shelter is scarce.
$100 - Micronutrient Powder Packets, delivers 2,700 packets of vitamins and minerals that boosts the immune system and gives twelve children the strength to survive disease and illness for seven and a half months.
$250 - School-In-A-Box Kit that allows UNICEF can get temporary classes up and running in 72 hours. We customize School-in-a-Box Kits for local languages and select basic educational supplies that can be used anywhere in the world. One School-in-a-Box Kit meets the needs of 1 teacher and 40 students to carry on classes for 3 months.
