Beautiful Gifts That Care
Inspired to support the rights of children in developing countries, UNICEF-the United Nations Children's Fund-is a nonprofit organization that was formed to better the development of youth. Created in 1946 by the United Nations General Assembly, it originally gave emergency food and healthcare aid to children in countries affected by World War II. Through policy advocacy and public and private partnerships UNICEF has expanded itself, pulling in donations to increase child protection through basic education, gender equality and HIV/AIDS treatment. UNICEF now has a presence in 191 countries and territories around the globe. Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1965, its services to the community continue to grow through support from private donors, select governments and partnerships like ours here at World Market. In fact, with the sales of UNICEF products such as beautifully decorated greeting cards and gifts, the organization helps improve the lives of children in need by providing vital access to education and healthcare.
