12 Days of UNICEF: Day 8, Lucy Liu
Lucy Liu is an internationally acclaimed actress and has been a UNICEF Ambassador since 2004. She has been very influential in supporting UNICEF’s mission to save and improve the lives of children worldwide.
A big part of my Holiday celebration as a kid was making homemade snowflake ornaments cut out of construction paper and stars made of popsicle sticks and glitter. The holidays were always a time for creativity and I never skipped the chance to explore.
Because education is so important to me, you can imagine how happy I was to learn that UNICEF offers children around the world opportunities to learn, even during periods of crisis. UNICEF’s “School-in-a-Box” kit – one of UNICEF’s Inspired Gifts available for purchase this holiday season – contains books, pencils, erasers, scissors and even a radio that help provide a temporary school for children in the midst of war, natural disasters and other emergencies. What’s really cool is that the aluminum lid of the box doubles as a blackboard.
You have an opportunity to purchase this unique gift in honor of a loved one while providing at least 40 children with a temporary school and a chance to continue their education. Few gifts are as innovative as this temporary school for children.
