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.

Immunizations
Measles Vaccines

$28.30
for 100 Doses Stop a Childhood Killer

Each year, measles kills hundreds of thousands of children worldwide, and those who are lucky enough to survive may be left with life-long disabilities that include blindness and brain damage. Fortunately, lowcost immunizations are a safe and easy prevention strategy that protects children from acquiring this deadly disease.

Insecticide-Treated Mosquito Nets
Mosquito-borne malaria is the biggest single killer of children in Africa, where a child dies from malaria every 30 seconds. A simple mosquito net can decrease infection rates by 50 percent. Your gift will enable UNICEF to buy three nets treated with long-lasting insect repellent to protect children from the menace of malaria.

Vaccine Carriers

for Two Carriers Vaccines Should Never Be Inaccessible to Any Child

Vaccines save lives. But it can be difficult to keep them at the right temperatures in hot climates. That’s why this gift is so inventive. Your purchase of cold-box vaccine carriers can make sure we get vaccines to children in remote areas who need them.

In this high-tech world, sometimes it’s the low-tech solutions that work best.

Bikes use human energy...they can navigate mountain trails and impassable roads...anyone can use one...and in an emergency, pedal power saves lives!

Motorcycle
In many of the countries UNICEF serves, schools and villages are located in remote areas that can only be accessed through mountain passes, dirt roads, or nearly impassable paths.
