As Mother’s Day approaches, I’d like to remind you that you don’t have to be a mother to care for kids. Please join me in honoring motherhood today by making a donation to help UNICEF immunize children and save more lives.

Receiving immunizations and vaccines are a routine part of growing up for kids in the United States.  In other parts of the world there is nothing routine about it: 2 million children die from preventable diseases.

But there is hope, UNICEF is saving more kids’ lives with cost-effective vaccines:

  • In Nigeria, where 56% of the world’s polio cases are reported. Read more.
  • In Iraq, where 8,000 vaccinators fanned out in one of the biggest humanitarian operations the country in the last two years. Read more.
  • In Venezuela, where a “Trio for Life” campaign will immunize 22,000 newborns each year. Read more.

Since 1980, 20 million children’s lives have been saved through UNICEF’s immunization campaigns. This Mother’s Day, give Moms around the world the gift of joy and give their children the gift of life. Your generous donation today will help.
