I got this from Unisef today and decided to pass it along. Anyhoooos if you read this take the time to go and make a donation and feel free to pass along to your buddies. k. at least $25 bucks is not too much.
UNICEF is protecting children in Darfur from the devastating effects of the ongoing crisis—and we need your help. Today more than 1.6 million children in the Darfur region of Sudan are affected, and this number continues to grow. UNICEF requires additional resources to protect more and more children from the horrors of war.Since the crisis began, UNICEF reduced the risk of violence toward women and children by training aid workers. UNICEF enrolled 380,000 kids in school, which helps provide a sense of normalcy in an otherwise far from normal existence.But today our progress is threatened by a severe lack of funding. Last year, UNICEF received just 4% of the funds needed to hold the line for kids. UNICEF knows how to do a lot with a little, so your donation of $25, $30, $50, or $75 will help kids suffering in Darfur and allow UNICEF to continue its lifesaving work.
Thank you for your commitment to the world’s most vulnerable children.
