I Champion Children’s Rights!


A few months ago, I finally walked the talk and signed up to be a UNICEF Champion for Children.  As acknowledgment, I received a welcome email from UNICEF Philippines’ Vanessa Tobin.  But I was surprised when, earlier this month, I received another welcome letter in the mail. Apart from Ms. Tobin’s missive, there was one from Gary Valenciano too – he’s been UNICEF’s Ambassador for many many years now.

Really, those welcome letters were unnecessary, but I appreciate them. Getting these, was the real bonus:

Thank you artwork by a UNICEF supported child, and samples of all-occasion cards. They even sent a Champion’s card. I don’t think it’s accepted anywhere, but I am proud to have it.

I champion Children’s Rights!

  • To give children the best start in life
  • To help children survive and thrive
  • To make education accessible to every child
  • To create a safe and protective environment for children

If you don’t know what to gift someone who has it all, why don’t you make a one-time donation to UNICEF this Christmas on his/her name? Give a gift that gives. SmileCheckout the UNICEF giving page.
