While immunization is one of the most cost-effective ways to protect children against deadly diseases, millions of children still go without necessary vaccines, including 23.7 million under the age of 1 year without the measles vaccine, according to data gathered by U.S. Fund for UNICEF. Polio, tetanus, and measles are all preventable by vaccine, and can cause irreversible damage and death. As part of its efforts to ensure zero children die of a preventable cause, and to ensure healthy environments for children all over the world, UNICEF conducts immunization programs that aim to fight disease and its effects on communities.

U.S. Fund for UNICEF’s Inspired Gifts program creates opportunities for donors to purchase specific lifesaving items, such as blankets, mosquito nets, and therapeutic milk, which are then shipped to children in more than 150 countries. Through its Inspired Gifts program, UNICEF aims to provide immunization kits filled with 20 doses of the tetanus vaccine, 20 doses of the polio vaccine, and 10 doses of the measles vaccine to mothers and children, in an effort to reduce the destructive capacity of those diseases across the globe. Each kit travels to its destination in a cold carrier box to maintain the appropriate temperature, and costs $20.

Join G-Team and donate $10 to help U.S. Fund for UNICEF prevent disease among women and children in more than 150 countries. If G-Team members raise $2,000, then U.S. Fund for UNICEF can distribute 200 immunization kits with tetanus, polio, and measles vaccines to women and children, with matching donations of up to $25,000 from an anonymous donor. Each additional $20 raised will fund another immunization kit.

  • “Good charity”

  • “Although it was slow in coming, I appreciated the "thank-you" letter from UNICEF. It felt good to have my efforts recognized in a tangible way.”
