United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund, or UNICEF for short, was founded on this day -December 11th- in 1946. UNICEF is an international organization that raises funds to help save and protect the most vulnerable children in the world. They help children that are suffering through many different types of disasters, such as: earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, food crises, trafficking, violence, disease, water shortage, poor nutrition, and more.

U.S. Fund for UNICEF helps support UNICEF by advocating, fundraising, and raising awareness. There are many ways to help out these children on the other side of the world, and they don’t require you to leave your computer! You can donate monthly, trick-or-treat for UNICEF, attend an event, become a volunteer, and even go shopping! Yep, I said shopping! UNICEF sells products that brings the profits directly back to the children. You can buy beautiful jewelry, accessories, decor, cards, and more. You don’t need to worry about your money going to waste, because UNICEF was rated one of the best charities to donate to, with 90% of every dollar going straight to children in need.

So jump on board and help UNICEF save and protect vulnerable children today!


National UNICEF Day



In 1946, UNICEF was created to help children after WWII. UNICEF does whatever it takes to save and protect the world’s children. Their lifesaving interventions and programs around the world have helped reduce the number of child deaths by 50 percent since 1990.

“UNICEF had helped save more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization.” http://www.unicefusa.org/mission/survival
