NEW YORK (December 11, 2019) – As UNICEF – the global children’s humanitarian organization – celebrates its 73rd anniversary today, PIX11 is pleased to announce a media partnership with UNICEF USA to shine a light on the organization’s work to save and protect children around the world.
PIX11’s partnership with UNICEF USA will give tri-state area audiences the opportunity to learn more about UNICEF’s global mission to provide nutrition, education, emergency relief and more, for every child.
PIX11 News Anchor Tamsen Fadal will serve as the station’s lead for the year-long partnership. As an added element to the partnership, PIX11 and Tamsen are planning to travel abroad to witness UNICEF’s work firsthand in early 2020 and document its impact on children and families. Tamsen and team will bring these stories back to New York to share with PIX11 viewers, empowering them to take action by fundraising for UNICEF at https://pix11.com/UNICEFUSA to support this work and lifesaving mission.
“UNICEF has been improving lives for generations and at PIX 11 we believe all children deserve a chance to have a bright future,” said Bart Feder VP/General Manager of PIX 11. “We’re committed to reporting that inspires positive change and look forward to working with our partners at UNICEF USA to bring these stories home.
“We could not be more excited to establish this partnership with PIX11 right here in our own backyard,” said Shelley Diamond, Chief Marketing Officer at UNICEF USA located in New York. “This partnership allows the greater New York community to learn more about UNICEF’s work on a local and global level, hear our compelling and inspiring stories and see our dedicated UNICEF workers who believe there is no challenge too great when it comes to making a difference in a child’s life”
With more than 70 years of expertise, UNICEF is the driving force that builds a world where the rights of every child are realized, with the global authority to influence decision makers and the sophistication and partners to turn innovative ideas into reality.
