Paddington's Postcards for Children

Introduce a special child in your life to adventures around the globe with Paddington’s Postcards — and help the world's children at the same time. 

Children love to explore their world. Now, you can take that exciting journey with them. When you sign up for monthly giving, Paddington™ will send a child in your life postcards from his global travels, along with many other surprises. 

Your child can see the world with Paddington™ 

Ideal for youngsters aged 4–10, Paddington's Postcards introduces kids to a new country each month — and a child who lives there. Your young adventurer will learn about what life is like for children and families in other parts of the world. What’s more, your monthly donation will support the work UNICEF does every day to ensure all children can grow up healthy, hopeful and safe.

Enrich your child's cultural education with a monthly postcard from Paddington, igniting their curiosity, teaching diversity and expanding their universe through engaging narratives from around the globe.

Each month your child can receive a postcard from Paddington and learn about kids around the world
