Nurture children: UNICEF.

UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund, does more than sell pretty cards at Christmastime. They are the world's largest children's organization, providing health, educational and other protective and life-enhancing services to children in 158 countries around the world. Here are several ways you can get involved:

* Learn more by visiting the website. You'll find videos, success stories, and more.

* Volunteer with UNICEF in your hometown.

* Donate money or stocks or securities directly to UNICEF.

* Buy or sell items on Ebay.

* Send foreign currency to UNICEF's Change for Good Program.

* Buy items from various retailers who promise to donate a portion of the purchase price to UNICEF.

* Make a donation in honor of your wedding guests.

* Buy all occasion cards and other gifts (stuffed animals, games, candles, and more) from UNICEF. Proceeds support their work with children.

UNICEF works in five major areas: education, emergencies, HIV/AIDS, immunization, and malnutrition. Won't you help in their admirable mission?
