In Haiti, the rainy season is setting in, making rivers in the rubble. Last week, flooding south of the capital killed dozens. With more than a million people homeless and exposed to the elements, the support of the international community is just as crucial today as it was on January 12th.
This week’s Thursday video reminds you of the stories we’ve told you since the quake. Stories of kids like Rodrigue, who lost both his parents and Anne, whose school was destroyed along with her home
This week’s Thursday video brings you the Lullaby reprise. A stunningly gorgeous video bedded with the same swelling theme composed by UNICEF Ambassador Steve Barakatt, “For Every Child” goes out to the children of THIS world – and to the very grounded governments and changemakers who are charged with ensuring the rights enshrined in the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
UNICEF’s Tap Project is proud to announce the launch of our first Tap Project YouTube channel. In just under two weeks, the UNICEF Tap Project channel has already soared to the #6 Most Subscribed channel in the Nonprofit YouTube network. Viewers can now watch all of the videos that contributed to the success of the 2009 Tap Project. From commercials to recaps, Campaign Volunteer testimonials to field visit documentation, the UNICEF Tap Project YouTube channel is the single place to view video files submitted to the Tap Project from all over the country.
Like what you see? You can now submit your own videos to email@example.com for the chance to be featured on our Tap Project channel. Simply record a video (5 minutes or less) about what the Tap Project means to you and email your submission to the Tap Project. Use the power of video to help spread the word about the Tap Project and help UNICEF put an end to the preventable deaths of children due to a lack of clean water.
Throughout the country volunteers are finding new ways to promote the Tap Project and help benefit the over 900 million people worldwide who lack access to clean water. But you don’t have to be a registered volunteer to volunteer. Everyone can take action and join the fight. Whether you dine at a participating restaurant, or contact local media, or tell a friend, every action in support of the Tap Project bring us one step closed to the day when zero children die of preventable causes.
And now, we’re on YouTube. Watch this YouTube video interviewing Tap Project Campaign Volunteers and why they support the Tap Project. You may also wish to post your own reply video on YouTube about your own experience. If you do, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the link!
Or, visit the Tap Project website to find a participating restaurant and visit!
In case you hadn’t noticed, we’re always reaching out to people. We want them (and that includes you) to have the chance to learn about all the ways we help kids around the world. We have so many programs in so many countries, it’s not an easy task.
Recently, some of the very talented people I work with made this video, which beautifully illustrates UNICEF’s work to do whatever it takes to save a child. As far as I can tell, it’s impossible to watch this video and not be moved by the scope of UNICEF’s efforts
Thirty years ago, only one out of five children were immunized against killer diseases like measles and polio. Throughout the developing world, millions of children were dying of illnesses that had all but disappeared in the world’s wealthier countries. Since then, a near miracle has taken place. Now, four out of five children are protected by vaccines. Polio is on the verge of elimination. Measles and tetanus deaths have been reduced dramatically. This miracle did not happen by itself.
