A group of mostly 11 & 12-year-old kids from Farragut Middle School in Hastings-on-Hudson, NY, created a music video performing all the vocals and instrumentals in order to raise funds and awareness for children in need.
11-year-old Caleb conceived the idea for this project after watching a video of celebrities performing to benefit efforts in Haiti. It’s truly remarkable that these kids put so much work and effort to help those in need. This is kids helping kids at its best!

UNICEF is there before, after and during an emergency to provide aid, especially to the most vulnerable victims
When we started our social media efforts, we knew it would provide us with a great way to communicate with like-minded individuals interested in UNICEF’s work. It has been a wonderful channel to speak directly with our volunteers and inform the masses of the work that’s being done for the world’s children.
However, nothing could prepare us for the overwhelming response we’ve received over the past few days. The generosity of the community coming together to help those affected by the earthquake in Haiti is nothing short of incredible.
