Donors to the U.S. Fund or UNICEF are not just writing checks or supplyingcredit card numbers. You are reaching all the way around the world — into someo this Earth’s remotest corners — with help or children who might not survivewithout it. You are rushing high-protein biscuits to a starving child in Somalia,delivering an anti-malarial bed net to a toddler in Liberia, protecting a young girlrom exploitation in Bangladesh. You are vaccinating a newborn against measlesin Madagascar, treating cholera in Haiti, teaching curious students about theimportance o hand washing in Vietnam.
 We are lucky enough to have met many children whose lives your donations havesaved and transformed. Those children and their parents are more grateful than you canimagine. Every child deserves a fair chance in this world. Your generosity helps levelthe playing field for children who are — quite randomly — born without the resourcesmost of us in the United States take for granted.Your support of UNICEF’s work continues to reap tangible, measurable results.Recently, we announced yet another drop in child mortality. Last year, 22,000 childrenunder age five were dying every day from preventable causes — now that numberis 21,000. The progress in the last few decades has been truly remarkable. In 1990,33,000 children were dying each day. Meaning, in just two decades, UNICEF and itspartners have helped cut child mortality by more than one-third.Of course we still have a long way to go. Because the preventable death of even onechild — any child — is simply unacceptable.In Fiscal Year 2011, 408,667 individuals as well as 16,788 corporations, schools, NGOs,foundations, and other institutions stood with us in this belief by donating more than$455 million to the U.S. Fund. Because we continue to garner the highest possible ratingfrom Charity Navigator, our donors know their contributions are always well spent.We are deeply grateful to all of you and look forward to your partnership in the comingyear as we continue to reach more children than ever before.
