I've made quite a few donations to UNICEF this month, and unfortunately they've taken this to mean that they should spend this money on post, paper and time writing to me! GRRR!
Anyway, I can't be that irritated because they are my charity of the day once again! Once the little one is here, I intend to use reusable nappies, but I've had a few coupons for money off vouchers for disposable nappies. I'm not a fan of our throwaway culture, but have bought a few of these just in case, and they aren't all bad, as each time you buy a pack of Pampers, they donate one vaccine to UNICEF.
UNICEF is the driving force that helps build a world where the rights of every child are realized. We 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 us unique among world organizations, and unique among those working with the young.
We believe that nurturing and caring for children are the cornerstones of human progress. UNICEF was created with this purpose in mind – to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path. We believe that we can, together, advance the cause of humanity.
We advocate for measures to give children the best start in life, because proper care at the youngest age forms the strongest foundation for a person’s future.
