UNICEF USA: New $250,000 holiday giving match

This has been a rough year for the tens of thousands of children who are suffering from the ravages of war, floods and other natural disasters. The most important thing many of these children STILL need is access to clean, disease-free water. And you can help them get it by giving a gift that gives back – a UNICEF Inspired Gift.

This holiday season, a group of anonymous donors has pledged to make your support go TWICE as far by matching your gift $1-for-$1, up to $250,000.

In Pakistan, three consecutive years of flooding has left children without safe drinking water. Refugee camps outside war-torn Syria and across Africa are breeding grounds for water-borne disease. And in Democratic Republic of the Congo, new cases of cholera threaten to spread like wildfire.

A Safe Water Kit Inspired Gift can provide the most desperate of these children with simple yet remarkable treatments. Oral rehydration salts, water purification tablets and anti-malarial tablets in each kit are specifically designed to protect and save thousands of at-risk children.

Purchase a Safe Water Kit Inspired Gift for just $99.02 in honor of a loved one before December 12 and your gift will be matched, $1-for-$1, up to $250,000.

Inspired Gifts help you turn the holiday season into a force of good for all the world’s children. Once you choose your gift, you’ll get a chance to customize a beautiful card to let your loved one know about the gift you have made in their name. But don’t wait! December 12 is the deadline for sending your card and the DEADLINE for the MATCH offer.

The Safe Water Kit contains the precise lifesaving treatments that work together to save children whose lives are at risk because of flooding, famine or war.

  • Oral Rehydration Salts – They have been called “the most important medical advancement of the 20th century.” This simple mixture of just salt, sugar and water can literally stop diarrhea or cholera from killing a child. When a sick child drinks this solution, her body immediately starts absorbing fluids that otherwise would have been lost.
  • Water-Purification Tablets – Just one tablet can make 4 liters of the most deadly, polluted water safe enough for a child to drink.
  • Anti-Malarial Tablets – When taken within 24 hours of the onset of symptoms, one small tablet can mean the difference between a full recovery and death for a child infected by malaria.

A Safe Water Kit Inspired Gift is one of the most meaningful gifts you can give this holiday season. Gift a Safe Water Kit in the name of a loved one and all gifts made within the next seven days will be matched $1-for-$1.

Thank you for all that you do for the world’s children.
