Attention mobile users: UNICEF Tap Project National Sponsor Giorgio Armani Fragrances is introducing an opportunity for UNICEF supporters to use their phones for good this September to support UNICEF’s clean water programs for children. From September 1-30, for every person who texts “ACQUA” to UNICEF (864233) and donates $5 to support the UNICEF Tap Project, Giorgio Armani Fragrances will match each donation, thereby doubling texters’ impact.

Children stand and watch as volunteers unload large, black plastic boxes from a UNICEF truck at the Child Friendly Space where they come each day to play, learn, and just be kids.
Two years after most of them lost their homes and some, their families, the delivery of these supplies marks the launch of Art in a Bag or ‘bwat Atis’ in Creole – a new art therapy program created by UNICEF to provide displaced and impoverished children with a creative way of healing.
Take a look at this article from syndicated columnist, Amy Dickinson, who writes that, “Great charities are transparent, show donors where the money goes and don’t just claim how much of their money goes to programs, but report measurable outcomes. I check out all my recommendations on charitynavigator.org. All receive a top rating.”
Being able to witness UNICEF’s work in Honduras was very meaningful to me. I got involved and went on this trip because of my son-in-law, Matt, who encouraged our family to support UNICEF. Matt passed away recently, and our support for UNICEF is a memorial to him. I think he would be deeply proud of what is happening in Honduras.
Growing up in developing countries, I was able to see UNICEF at work. Everywhere I lived, they were there, always doing their best to help kids who often had nothing. So I trust UNICEF, because I know they do exactly what they say they do.
I end where I began, with gratitude for all of you who stay informed, donate, spread the word and offer prayers, thoughts and love to the children affected. When each of us gives a little bit of ourselves, we become part of something very powerful. Collectively, we are making it possible for children to survive the unimaginable. “Thank you” is not enough. The lives saved are the reward we all share.
