2010 INSPIRED GIFTS HOLIDAY CATALOG

Save a child’s life


with a UNICEF Inspired Gift
Help give children the
opportunity for survival

Every day, 22,000 children die in the developing world from causes that are
totally preventable. Simple, affordable solutions exist to save millions of these
young lives, but sadly, millions of children are deprived of these lifesaving
necessities. Vaccines, mosquito nets, clean water, nutritious food, and a safe
haven from harm are matters of life and death for many of these children.

That’s why the Inspired Gifts in this catalog are so important, and your support
can help UNICEF deliver many of these lifesaving essentials. By simply
selecting one or more items in this catalog, you’ll help UNICEF:

• Provide food and medicines to children living in harsh circumstances


– from poverty to exploitation, armed conflicts to natural disasters.
• Immunize children against diseases like polio and measles so they
have the chance to survive.
• Provide basic school supplies to educate children, giving them a
chance for a happy, self-reliant future.

Join UNICEF’s mission to decrease the number of preventable childhood


deaths from 22,000 each day to zero. A good way to start is to simply choose
Inspired Gifts from this catalog.
