We Need Your Help!
If you are a student at Brigham Young University and looking to take on the responsibility of restoring the UNICEF club at BYU, please email byu.unicef(at)gmail.com. We are in need of an individual(s) to lead the club and get things moving again!
Take a look at the work that was done in years past to see the amazing things that have been accomplished.
We have had the opportunity to participate in service projects every month and they have been AMAZING! Just last week we went to the Food Bank and learned that the Food Bank does more than just provide food to families that are in need. They also provide heat for homes, back packs for children, assist veterans in finding jobs, and much more. We were able to sort donated food into different care boxes that are given to families in need. It was such a good opportunity to be able to help the community.
Preparing the boxes to put the sorted food in.

In January, we went to Salem and volunteered at Friday’s Kids. Friday’s kids is a nonprofit organization that gives caregivers of special needs children a break for the night. The volunteers were able to spend 1-on-1 time with the children while the caregivers are able to relax, run errands, have a date night, etc.

These have been such fun and rewarding experiences!! Come out and serve with us!
Hey Everyone! Today, Wednesday, October 20, 2010, at 6:00pm in 380 BRMB (Brimhall Building, across from the Testing Center), we will be having our weekly meeting. We were fortunate enough to get Ms. Kate Lovell to come and speak to us about her experiences in Kenya. She has been there several times and is going to talk to us about the challenges facing that country and their children.
We are super stoked for the meeting this week! A lot of great things will be happening. Some of the exciting things we have going on are:
- We are going to get a jump start on Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. Below are some links to get us excited!
- Get things ready to take around some “charity buckets” to local businesses
- Make new friends
- Help children all around the world and much more!
UNICEF has helped reduce child deaths by 1/3 over the last 4 years. Take a few minutes out of your day to come and
serve those less fortunate.
BELIEVE IN ZERO.
With school starting to get somewhat under control (meaning we’ve started skimming our reading, doing the bare minimum on assignments, and stopping trying to impress our professors and just zone out) and tests and assignments starting to pile up, you need some variation that will bring joy and happiness back into your life. It’s time to incorporate something that will help you feel better about yourself and allow you to meet other people (maybe even your EC) while helping children all around the world.
Tomorrow, September 22nd, we are holding our first UNICEF club meeting/opening social. COME AND BRING YOUR FRIENDS.
When? 9/22/2010 @ 6:00 pm
Where? Brimhall Building, room 380
Why? To help children all around the world. 22,000 die everyday. YOU CAN HELP.
Who? EVERYONE! Invite your roommates, friends, classmates, random people off the street, etc.
What? View this video to see what we are all about!
We have some great activities this year that will allow us to be completely selfless and help not only the children, but have the opportunity to serve in our local community every month!
Come check it out and help us make this year great! You can take an hour of your week to help save the lives of children who aren’t as fortunate as you.
We believe in zero…Do you?
