I have been given an opportunity to represent my company, who has put up with me for almost 15 years, as a member of Team Kantar for our 2015 UNICEF Charity Challenge.
This means in September I will journey to Iceland along with 32 other colleagues from around the world, of which I only know 1, for a 4 day trek across the Icelandic lava fields.
While each hiker will be covering their own cost we also must commit to raising $2400 to support our UNICEF Brighter Futures campaign. The Brighter Futures fund helps vulnerable children in Bangladesh, Bolivia and Malawi work towards a better life and allows them to fulfill their true potential.
Your donated dollars will focus on the areas of child health and protection.
-All children to live free of illness and preventable diseases
-19,000 children under 5 die every day from largely preventable causes
-Child mortality has halved since 1990 and polio nearly eradicated
-All children to live free from exploitation and violence
-1 in 6 five to fourteen year olds involved in child labor
-Global number of children in child labor has declined by one third since 2000
Together, we are working toward the day when ZERO children die from preventable causes and every child has a safe and healthy childhood.
100% of the money you donate goes directly to UNICEF and is also tax-deductible.
Thank you for support.
