Our World Tuesday, ABC Wednesday, U for Unicef



Welcome to Our World Tuesday! This meme continues in memory of the work of Klaus Peter, whose "that's My World" brought people together from around the world every Monday to share the wonders therein--big and small.Please click on our  logo for "Our World Tuesday" in the sidebar. Thank you Team of O. W. T.!


This post is dedicated to Unicef. Every year I buy my Christmas presents by supporting Unicef. Among them are beautiful diaries, Christmas cards, candles and many other things. .








From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

United Nations Children's Fund was created by the United Nations General Assembly on December 11, 1946, to provide emergency food and healthcare to children in countries that had been devastated by World War II. In 1953, UNICEF became a permanent part of the United Nations System and its name was shortened from the original United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund but it has continued to be known by the popular acronym based on this old name. Headquartered in New York City, UNICEF provides long-term humanitarian and developmental assistance to children and mothers in developing countries.

 





UNICEF relies on contributions from governments and private donors and UNICEF's total income for 2006 was $2,781,000,000. Governments contribute two thirds of the organization's resources; private groups and some 6 million individuals contribute the rest through the National Committees. UNICEF's programs emphasize developing community-level services to promote the health and well-being of children. UNICEF was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1965 and the Prince of Asturias Award of Concord in 2006.

With thanks to Denise Nesbitt, who created ABC. For more interesting ABC posts click on the logo in the sidebar . This week we are looking for words beginning with U.






 We can all help if we open our eyes, our purses and  above all our hearts

Wonderful post and images. Unicef is a great organization, I am sure it feels to donate to them. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

My grandchildren are each choosing something to donate to World Vision this year. My daughter feels it's time for them to "give" rather than to "receive." Not that they won't get anything, but they need to think of others instead of themselves now.

Wat een mooi onderwerp heb je gekozen en wat goed dat je het onder de aandacht brangt. Even niet denken over de strijkstokverhalen maar wel realiseren dat iedere cent meer dan nodig is.

Groet, ♫ M e l ☺ d y ♫

What a good choice for the letter U, Wil. I was amazed at the yearly donation figure, and heartened by all the projects that are undertaken by UNICEF. One of the better things the United Nations does...
