How your purchase helps
You purchase will help UNICEF protect the rights of children around the world.
UNICEF Inspired Gifts
All of the Inspired Gifts featured on this website are real, life-saving and life-changing items that UNICEF supplies to support our international programmes throughout the year. When you buy, for example, mosquito nets, we will deliver those mosquito nets to the place in the world where they are needed most. Occasionaly, where children's needs for a particular item change, we may supply an alternative item in the same category, for example crayons instead of pencils, or water equipement instead of a water pump. This way, you can be sure that your Inspired Gift will be helping in the best way possible.
Cards and gifts (header)
- Buying 1 pack of cards could provide 5 toddlers with a bowl of porridge, containing extra vitamins and minerals to treat and prevent malnutrition.
- Buying 1 pack of cards could provide at least 70 pencils, helping children to write and draw.
- Buying 2 packs of cards could provide vaccines to protect 5 children against measles, a disease that kills almost 400,000 children each year.
- Buying 4 packs of cards could provide a long-lasting insecticide-treated mosquito net to protect a family from malaria, a major child-killer!
