Hi family and friends,
Each year on Jackson's birthday we have asked that he choose a charitable cause to donate to. This year he decided he wanted to donate food and supplies to children in a country where they had a great need for it. While there were many countries that could have benefited from this, once he learned about the impact hurricane Matthew had on the children of Haiti his choice was immediate.
Jackson is very excited to do this for the children of Haiti. Thank you in advance for your help!
Hurricane Matthew — the most brutal Caribbean storm in a decade — devastated Haiti. And, when disaster strikes, children are the most vulnerable.
In fact, nearly 900,000 kids are menaced by this catastrophe and its dangerous aftermath. Eighty percent of homes in the most affected region have been damaged or destroyed. Nearly 176,000 people are living in shelters. Hundreds of schools are out of commission. Cholera cases are growing daily, making safe, clean water a top priority.
But UNICEF can meet children's needs on many fronts — quickly, effectively and efficiently. Donate now to help UNICEF take rapid, lifesaving action for children and their families suffering from this terrible storm.
