Hallmark + UNICEF = Life

 Lives are precious and priceless. But what if lives are being lost and it is because of lack of basic necessities?

We live without worrying about the basic essentials for life such as water, food, clothes.

 We line up to buy the latest gadget on the same day when it gets released, whereas in many places in the world, children line up for a glass of water and one meal a day.

 Our "wants" outnumber our "needs".

We seem to be loosing our appreciation and gratitude for what REALLY constitutes LIFE.

There are many ways to CARE.

 I like to start at home by not wasting food and water. We often remind our little boy about the children who are crying because they have no food to eat, while he doesn't like to eat his eggs.

Secondly, I lookout for brands that CARE. Not just about their business but brands that are sensitive to the needs of people and does something to make a difference.

UNICEF and Hallmark Canada embarked on a partnership this past holiday season to support the long standing tradition of the UNICEF Holiday cards and gifts program. By partnering with Hallmark, UNICEF has tripled its retail reach in Canadian communities while increasing the amount of funds raised for children around the world.

A portion of every UNICEF greeting card will support the organization’s work ensuring child survival wherever children’s lives are at risk.

  • An anniversary card can help UNICEF provide Vitamin A doses to boost children’s immune systems and preserve their sight. 
  • A birthday card can help provide measles vaccines or oral rehydration salts to treat diarrhea, one of the leading killers of children under 5 years old.  
With more than 116 unique designs Hallmark’s new UNICEF collection has something for everyone celebrating life's special moments while giving a child a better chance to survive and thrive. The collection features beautifully crafted cards to celebrate all occasions including birthdays, weddings, the birth of a new baby or to send a special message like good luck, get well or bon voyage.
I received some samples and will continue to buy the UNICEF cards, so that I can contribute to help a child survive. 

UNICEF every day cards are now available in Hallmark stores across Canada as well as in other fine retailers where the Hallmark brand is sold.

Disclosure: I received a sample for review purpose only. No monetary compensation was received. The above post reflects my personal opinion.
