With the cheer of Christmastime comes the awareness that many children are living in poverty, are sick, abused, neglected or under threat. With a purchase of UNICEF gifts, you can become part of a community of people helping to save, improve and protect the lives of some of the Philippines’ most disadvantaged children. Funds go to various education programs that UNICEF Philippines is supporting.
Apart from giving children a chance to be the best they can be, UNICEF items exemplify responsible giving. All UNICEF cards and gifts are developed and produced to stringent international standards of quality, safety, social responsibility, and environmental protection.
Ethical sourcing. Ethical sourcing is at the heart of the UNICEF collection. UNICEF suppliers, wherever they are, big or small, adhere to standards on the fundamental rights of their employees—and in particular the complete prohibition of child labor.
Artisan and handcrafted. UNICEF also actively supports artisans in inspiring handcrafted products, engaging only with socially responsible workshops and producers that conform to UNICEF’s principles.
Environmentally responsible. Especially with the recent natural calamities affecting millions of Filipino children, protecting the environment has always been a primary concern for UNICEF, that is why only wood and paper from managed forests and exclude materials that can negatively impact nature are used.
UNICEF relies entirely on voluntary donations for our work for children – we receive no core funding from the UN. Donations come from governments, private corporations and individual donors, including those who purchase our cards and gifts.
