Donate Your Birthday To UNICEF!
This year, instead of gifts, have your friends and family support UNICEF with a donation in your name!
Even if your birthday is months away, you can join the community of people supporting UNICEF today!
The United Nations Children's Fund - UNICEF - works for children's rights, their survival, development and protection, guided by the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
People Supporting UNICEF
"I can testify to what UNICEF means to children, because I was among those who received food and medical relief right after World War II," said actress Audrey Hepburn on her appointment as a Goodwill Ambassador in 1989. "I have a long-lasting gratitude and trust for what UNICEF does." As a result of her work for UNICEF over subsequent years, that gratitude is mutual.
Audrey Hepburn is my biggest inspiration. Reading about her life as a UNICEF ambassador has really made me want to make a difference. We sometimes forget to stop and appreciate all the wonderful things we have been blessed with. There are less fortunate people in this world who fall asleep hungry and are battling for their lives against deadly diseases.
This year, I'm giving to those who are in desperate need. Instead of gifts, I am donating my 21st birthday to UNICEF.
Here's what you can do:
Visit the UNICEF page and look for the big red button that says "Donate Now". Enter your gift amount and information. Once you've done that, return to this page and record your donation!
Thank you! Any donation is greatly appreciated!
I've been working to help raise awareness and funds for this organization for quite a while now, and would love it if you could join me. The recent drought in Africa as well as other natural disasters in various continents cannot be ignored - often, children are most at risk, as they are unable to fend for themselves. There isn't a doubt in my mind that I am beyond fortunate, for I have not only everything I need to live modestly, but most of what I want (haven't been able to buy a spaceship yet...). Rather than buying me shots of alcohol to celebrate my 21st, please donate a mere $5 or $10 dollars on my behalf to this organization, which is constantly working to improve the lives of children. If you decide to donate, I hope we physically cross paths so I can give you the hugs and kisses you deserve!
I went trick-or-treating for UNICEF as a wee tot and throughout grade-school: commitment is what makes a difference right? UNICEF does it all: from protection, to education, to healthcare! The best part is that they track and analyze the impact of their efforts to maintain the good they've done, and to know how to improve their future efforts.
The United Nations Children's Fund is a charity that helps in aiding children from all around the world. They provide food, shelter, protection, medical aides to millions of children that are in dire need. There is no better way to help the children of the world.

As I have said in my page, it is great to help out those in need.
As we were once taught, the children are our future. Helping them now gives them a chance to build themselves and have a successful life.
I choose this charity as it pains me to see children, with tattered clothes on barefoot, out on dangerous streets during school days and school nights, selling flowers and some trinkets made They should be in school, learning, developing... Instead they are forced to work by circumstances the government have not solved.
At the very least, we could hand out a helping hand to these kids. Hopefully, send them back to school. Possibly giving them a better future.
UNICEF is the driving force that helps build a world where the rights of every child are realized. They have the global authority to influence decision-makers, and the variety of partners at grassroots level to turn the most innovative ideas into reality. That makes them unique among world organizations, and unique among those working with the young.

I was lucky enough to be born a free child in America to two healthy parents. I grew up eating everything from cheetos and pizza to handpicked blackberries and cucumbers in my backyard. I'm pretty sure I received every booster shot and vaccination under the sun before school every year.
Any basic human need I required was always filled, simply because I was born in America. I always remind myself that as a motivator to give more to the children that weren't so lucky.

this is probably my favorite charity and
really any support you can give to this charity would be very helpful and would be much more valuable to me than any gifts :)
if you do this you don't have to get me a gift.
