Seeking Congressional support for UNICEF to help children survive

Despite the challenges of an election year, the U.S. Congress is directing its attention to the Federal Budget for Fiscal Year 2013, which begins on October 1.  The House and Senate Appropriations Committees are working on the State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations, the bill that provides the U.S. Government’s contribution to UNICEF,  as well as funding for child survival and maternal health programs

Please take a stand for children by asking your Senators and Representative to maintain the funding for UNICEF.

Caryl M. Stern, President and CEO of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, in Washington with Rep. Nita M. Lowey (D-NY), a consistent supporter of UNICEF and global children’s programs.

Caryl M. Stern, the President and CEO of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, came to Washington to seek Congressional support for UNICEF and child survival funding that will keep more children from dying deaths we can prevent.  Her message to legislators and their staffs was for Congress to preserve these programs from spending cuts that are being considered.  UNICEF supporters understand the difficult budget climate, but are fighting to make children a foreign policy priority.  A child in need knows no politics!

 The U.S. Government’s contribution to UNICEF helps the United States – and the American people – to save children who would die without our assistance.  Please take a stand for children by asking your Senators and Representative to maintain the funding for UNICEF at $132 million for Fiscal 2013. 

With your action, you can help UNICEF help more children!

    In the time that it takes me to type this… the mere demand for 132 Million Dollars to save children from dying of hunger, seems like nothing…. How much was spent by a few U.S. Governmentors to “party” in Vegas? How much was spent for fun and games in Hawaii? I think it was only just under One Million Bucks. How much is spent daily on paper? How much on ink? If they alone, the people we pay to work for us in the city of Washington, would cut back or “not-waste” by $1.23/day there would be the 132M. If we all fasted for just “lunch,” no “fast-food” for one day out of the five day week that would equate to over 200M/year. Hold the fries and the drink and the hamburger please.
