Support UNICEF Philippines' Champions for Children

Just want to share this post to all my readers out there...

Support UNICEF Philippines' Champions for Children

Champions for Children
is a community of individuals whose regular contributions enable a growing number of Filipino children to enjoy the right to education, healthcare and nutrition as well as protection from neglect, abuse and exploitation.

But does UNICEF—an international organization with government and corporate partners—really need the support of individual champions? Yes! When pooled together, the modest yet regular monthly donations made by individual donors like you add up to provide us with a steady and reliable source of funds.

This kind of committed funding is necessary for us to sustain ongoing projects and map out long-term strategies in the fight for children's rights. It also allows us to quickly respond when and where the need is greatest, such as providing emergency relief during calamities, times of conflict and other critical situations.

How can your monthly donation help?

To be a Champion for Children is to be a champion for change.

All funds raised will be used to help children in the Philippines. Here’s how:

  • Many children die before their 5th birthday, but your Php600 / month can help 6 children survive by providing life-saving medical treatments.
  • Most children don’t get to finish the 6th grade, but your Php 500 / month can help 5 children stay in school with books and basic supplies.

Php 20.00 per day = Php 600 per month
Php 16.67 per day = Php 500 per month

With your pledge…
YOU are helping change the future of Filipino children
YOU are a UNICEF partner in championing the rights of children

How can I sign up to be a Champion?

Interested donors can sign up to become a Champion for Children at UNICEF booths in selected malls across Manila. The most convenient way is to have this charged to your credit card as this is the most efficient way to process your donation and ensures that the most funds reach the children that need them.

But if you don’t have a credit card, you can call our donation hotline (632) 758-1000 / 758-1442 (Mon to Fri, 8 am to 5 pm) and discuss other ways to donate. Your donation will go directly to help children through UNICEF programs in education, health, nutrition and child protection in the Philippines.

Upon signing up, champions will receive a welcome SMS or call to confirm their participation. Once confirmed, they will receive a welcome letter from Gary Valenciano, UNICEF National Ambassador, and a donor guide booklet.

Members of this caring community will gain a better understanding of how their contribution has made a difference on children’s lives through regular updates from the children, the UNICEF country representative and program officers in the field and full reports on various UNICEF projects. They will also receive certificates of appreciation, specially designed tokens and their very own Champions for Children ID.
