THE STORY:

“Perhaps we cannot prevent this world from being a world in which children are tortured. But we can reduce the number of tortured children. And if you don’t help us, who else in the world can help us do this?” Albert Camus

I’ve always loved this quote because it reminds me that even though there is nothing I can do to change the fact that we live in a world where children suffer, there are things that you and I can do together to see to it that this is a world in which FEWER children suffer.

This is one of the reasons I have been drawn to the work of UNICEF. I had always known of UNICEF, but it wasn’t until I did some curriculum writing for the TeachUNICEF program a few years ago, that I became more familiar with the scope and depth of their work. It’s also why I have decided to become an ambassador for UNICEF and made a commitment to raise over $10,000 for the organization by April 1, 2015. The culmination of this effort will be running the 2015 Boston Marathon on Monday, April 20 in order to bring more attention and support to the work that UNICEF is doing every day around the globe.

UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to save and improve children's lives, providing health care and immunizations, clean water and sanitation, nutrition, education, emergency relief and more. UNICEEF supports schools and programs worldwide that insure gender equality so that girls can get the same education as boys. They develop programs to prevent mothers from transmitting HIV to their unborn children. I could go on, but you can learn more on their website.

The money you give to The U.S. Fund for UNICEF supports UNICEF's work through fundraising, advocacy, and education in the United States. Together, all of us can work toward the day when ZERO children die from preventable causes and every child has a safe and healthy childhood.

Won’t you please help by giving what you can?

Thank you!

Chris
