As reported by Look To The Stars earlier this week, UNICEF counted down the last 12 days of 2008 by posting blogs written by their celebrity ambassadors and supporters about the impact that UNICEF Inspired Gifts are having on children around the world. The very last blog was penned by Sarah Jessica Parker, who has been a Goodwill Ambassador for the organization since 1998.
“The holiday presents I love the most are the ones that mean something special,” she wrote. "And I don’t mean just the gifts I receive, but also the ones I give.
“UNICEF Inspired Gifts are the perfect example of meaningful holiday presents your loved ones will always remember. That’s because the gift you are really giving is the chance for a struggling child to survive.
“Give a UNICEF Inspired Gift of insecticide-treated mosquito nets, high-energy/protein biscuits, or UNICEF School-in-a-Box kits.”
Parker witnessed the benefits that UNICEF Inspired Gifts have on children when she visited Liberia with the organization in 2006.
“The gifts will go directly to children where these vital supplies are needed, and your friend or family member will receive a beautiful acknowledgment that the gift was made in their name.
“It’s a small price to pay, with a big return… to share with those you love the joy and satisfaction of having saved children’s lives.
“If you’ve ever considered supporting UNICEF’s work, this is an inspiring way to help those who need it most.”
