UNICEF Gifts that Give Back

As the saying goes, it is better to give than to receive. There is no better time to teach your children this important lesson than during the holiday season.

UNICEF has created Gifts that Give Back, a lineup of holiday items that will benefit millions of children around the world. UNICEF’s Gifts that Give Back include UNICEF Inspired Gifts like medical supplies and nutritional supplements for malnourished children, the UNICEF card and gift collection, and collaborations with some of the world’s top brands such as Gucci, H&M and Delta Airlines. Each purchase support UNICEF’s efforts in lowering the number of preventable deaths in children each year.

Partner companies that will conduct holiday activities supporting UNICEF for 2010 include:

IKEA “Soft Toys” -- Continuing its commitment to the idea that all children have the right to an education, for each soft toy purchased in IKEA stores between November 1st and December 24th, IKEA will make a donation of 1 euro (approximately $1.39) to help support UNICEF and Save the Children's education projects globally. This is the 7th consecutive year of the campaign, which has raised over $31 million to support 8 million children in 40 countries worldwide.

Gucci -- Gucci announced a $1 million donation to UNICEF's “Schools for Africa” initiative in honor of the company’s partnership with UNICEF and the launch of the new Gucci children’s collection. Additional Gucci activities in support of UNICEF and “Schools for Africa” -- a UNICEF initiative in partnership with the Nelson Mandela Foundation and the Hamburg Society which aims to increase access to quality basic education for millions of children in Africa -- include:

    Gucci Sukey bag – In 2010, Gucci launched the third annual "Gucci for UNICEF" campaign.
