CADEAUX du MONDE's 31st Annual UNICEF Campaign
Dear Friends of CADEAUX du MONDE:
October is National UNICEF Month and CADEAUX du MONDE would like to invite all of our family, friends, business associates and customers to consider a donation to our 2017 UNICEF Fundraising Campaign--our 31st year of fundraising for UNICEF.
UNICEF is hard at work in 190 countries around the world with a single mission: to do whatever it takes to save and improve the lives of children. UNICEF is on the ground with permanent staff in every one of these countries, providing lifesaving health care and immunizations, clean water and sanitation, improved nutrition, education, and relief in times of emergency. 2017 was a very difficult year for children around the world with the migrant crisis, devastating natural disasters, continuing conflicts and UNICEF has been on the ground following their mandate of doing whatever it takes to save the lives of children.
In addition, today's youth faces an increasingly uncertain world where climate change, rapid urbanization, the economic recession and rising unemployment pose unprecedented challenges. There are 1.2 billion adolescents across the world, nine out of ten of these young people live in developing countries. Millions are denied their basic rights to quality education, health care, protection and exposed to abuse and exploitation. Recognizing the need to turn this vulnerable age into an age of opportunity, UNICEF dedicated it flagship publication State of the World's Children 2011 to adolescents to highlight the importance of investing in adolescents for breaking the cycles of poverty and inequity.
UNICEF's innovative, low-cost but extremely effective solutions to the problems facing children have allowed UNICEF to save more children's lives than any other humanitarian organization. UNICEF is working toward the day when ZERO children die from preventable causes and every child has a safe and healthy childhood.
Several local businesses have once again generously donated their space and placed the familiar bright orange countertop collection boxes next to their cash registers for the entire month of October. The boxes can be found at our longtime partner businesses: Arnold Art, DeBlois Gallery, The Firehouse Theater, Hydrangea House Inn, Miniature Occasions & Dolls, Newport Hardware and Spring Bull Gallery and our new partner businesses North End Pizzeria, Weatherly Tile & Stone and Parvo's Paint.
To donate to this year's fundraising campaign or to place a countertop collection box in your business, contact CADEAUX du MONDE at 401.935.8591 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for all your years of supporting this worthy cause.
