UNICEF Ambassadors

UNICEF Ambassadors Banner

Celebrities have been a vital and unique part of UNICEF's history since 1953, when celebrated actor Danny Kaye became UNICEF's first Goodwill Ambassador. Since then, celebrities including Audrey Hepburn, Téa Leoni, Sarah Jessica Parker, Laurence Fishburne, Alyssa Milano, and Selena Gomez have joined UNICEF to fight for the survival and development of children worldwide.

UNICEF Ambassadors are leaders in the entertainment industry, representing the fields of film, television, music, sports and beyond. They demonstrate leadership in their professions and serve as positive role models through their work. Over the years, UNICEF Ambassadors have played a critical role in raising awareness of the needs for children, and have continued to use their talent and fame to fundraise, advocate, and educate on behalf of UNICEF.

Together, UNICEF Ambassadors have proven that being a public figure can be a powerful tool in mobilizing the support necessary to improve the lives of children and ensure their basic human rights.
