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.
Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF:
We still have a big push going right now for Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. Since the first Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF 60 years ago, kids have helped to raise nearly $160 million to help kids suffering from preventable diseases everywhere. Lets help keep this going! http://youth.unicefusa.org/
What are our funds going to?
Currently, measles is a huge concern in Madagascar. UNICEF is getting ready an immunization campaign to help over 2.9 million infants. In order to make these efforts possible, UNICEF needs to get appropriate funding, and that’s where we come in!

After the earthquake in Haiti, there awakened a new political awareness in the older children. UNICEF is starting a new program to allow children to learn how to express themselves. They will be taught through means of debates, conferences, and forums put on by UNICEF.

No child should ever die of preventable causes. Every day 22,000 do. Believe in zero.
