Little Designer Club has supported UNICEF Australia. UNICEF is the United Nations Children’s Fund, a leading global humanitarian and development agency that works to uphold the rights of every child. Little Designers gave to two UNICEF projects:
Bring hours of joy to a child by purchasing a skipping rope
Play is essential for every child. It fuels imaginations, encourages healthy exercise and heals the effects of trauma for children caught in brutal conflicts. Skipping is a cheap and easy way to play. Your gift will give children one of the best gifts possible – all the fun of just being a kid.
Purchase life-saving food sachets for sick babies
This miracle peanut paste Plumpy’Nut® can bring a child back from severe malnutrition, fast. Without needing to be mixed with water, three sachets a day can be all it takes to save a child’s life. In times of famine, drought, or flood this emergency food is a true lifesaver.
