25,000 Children die every day of preventable causes. 25,000 Children Every Day - those words have been echoing through my mind for several days. It boggles the mind - 25,000 Children from preventable causes. For example, Mosquito-borne malaria is the biggest single killer of children in Africa, where a child dies from malaria every 30 seconds. A simple mosquito net can decrease infection rates by 50 percent.
YOU can help (yes YOU!!) for $17.79 YOU can provide three mosquito nets treated with long-lasting insect repellent to protect children from mosquitoes and other biting insects. The simple provision of mosquito nets, together with UNICEF awareness campaigns, can really save lives and so can you!
As tight as things are for me right now, I am so thankful for everything that I am blessed to have - a roof over my head, health, my children growing, going to school, safe from war, disease and unimaginable poverty.
So now down to the nitty gritty. UNICEF has a new campaign, which began yesterday - 12 Days of UNICEF
"12 Days of UNICEF," a blogging campaign to encourage Americans to give back this holiday season with Inspired Gifts. Beginning December 19 and running through December 31, UNICEF celebrity Ambassadors and Supporters, including Lucy Liu and Clay Aiken, will post daily blogs on the UNICEF website about Inspired Gifts and their impact on children around the world.To check out the field notes, go to:
