In the spirit of the Christmas season, UNICEF Philippines recently launched Basket of Hope – an online campaign to give meaningful gifts to help children in need.
Said campaign enables people to give something different this Christmas while supporting a cause.
For every donation of P500 to the UNICEF Basket of Hope, an individual can help provide children with treatments for malnutrition, or education supplies, or access to clean water and hygiene essentials. The donation will go directly to children most urgently in need at the time of giving.
For education, a basket can provide backpacks and school supplies. For health, children will be given life-saving treatment and ready-to-eat therapeutic food packs. For water, sanitation, and hygiene, children will get access to clean water and hygiene supplies during emergencies.
The UNICEF Basket of Hope campaign is led by UNICEF’s three Goodwill Ambassadors Gary Valenciano, Daphne Oseña-Paez, and Anne Curtis, and with the support of other celebrities and influencers.
