UNICEF Ambassadors and Supporters

Since the appointment of celebrated actor Danny Kaye in 1954, UNICEF Ambassadors and Supporters have played a critical role in raising awareness of the needs for children.

UNICEF is honored to have a long history of support from its Ambassadors and high-profile supporters, starting with Danny Kaye in 1954. For decades, UNICEF Ambassadors and Supporters have volunteered their time, talent, networks and platforms to raise awareness and mobilize support for UNICEF's work on behalf of children around the world.

Time and time again they prove that being a public figure can be a powerful tool in galvanizing the support that is needed to save and improve the lives of children and help protect children's rights.

UNICEF USA works directly with its own Ambassadors and Supporters — leaders in the entertainment industry, representing the fields of film, television, music, sports and beyond. For inquiries, please contact media@unicefusa.org.
