Elizabeth Kiem is the online producer for unicefusa.org.
We are the cable darlings for the next 36 hours, starting Tuesday afternoon, when Malaak Compton-Rock joins Oprah Winfrey to make the case for volunteering as a “touchstone” for life.
Compton-Rock is committed to a life of service–her Angelrock Project educates people interested in charitable work about their local community service options.
Before founding Angelrock, Compton-Rock (who is married to the comedian Chris Rock) dedicated her service to the global community by working here at the U.S. Fund. So while the Oprah segment is featuring Compton-Rock’s upcoming book “If it Takes a Village, Build One,” expect to hear good things about one of Compton-Rocks favorite organizations–UNICEF.
Tune in to hear more about the big impact even the smallest gestures can have. Compton-Rock says UNICEF greeting cards are one of the best ways to “give back.”

UNICEF will also get a broadcast shout out tomorrow night from celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson. Samuelsson, a UNICEF ambassador, is making his debut on Bravo’s Top Chef Masters.
The charity he’s playing for? UNICEF’s Tap Project of course!
So what have we learned? If it takes a village, build it. If it was created “quickfire” – taste it. And if it’s for the good of children everywhere–sign it, send it, read it and win it!
Oh yeah–and watch it!

Just as we take for granted the availability of clean drinking water when we sit down at a restaurant table, Samuelsson points out that chefs in every kitchen in America tend to consider clean water to wash their pots and pans “the least of my concerns.”
Worldwide, more than 884 million people do not have access to clean water — and half of them are children.
Read Samuelsson’s Tap Project shout out and then follow his World Water Day recipe: “work up an appetite, enjoy your meal — and save some lives. “
Because 884 million people would like to enjoy their meal too.
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, what kid doesn’t love that! The savory taste of the peanut butter mixed with the sweetness of jelly makes for the perfect treat. Unfortunately many children in developing countries have never been given the chance to experience this childhood favorite.
Therapeutic Nut Spread is a high protein, peanut-based paste, very similar to peanut butter that can revive a child suffering from malnutrition. Malnutrition, caused by such things as poverty and crop failure can severely compromise a child’s chances at survival.
Plumpy Nut has revolutionized the aid community’s ability to address the issue of malnutrition by placing the care of children back into the hands of a child’s mother or immediate family member. Once a child has been brought back from the brink of severe malnutrition, UNICEF doctors and nutrition specialists will give mothers a supply of Plumpy Nut to feed to her child
