A big part of my Holiday celebration as a kid was making homemade snowflake ornaments cut out of construction paper and stars made of popsicle sticks and glitter. The holidays were always a time for creativity and I never skipped the chance to explore. Because education is so important to me, you can imagine how happy I was to learn that UNICEF offers children around the world opportunities to learn, even during periods of crisis. UNICEF’s "School-in-a-Box" kit – one of UNICEF's Inspired Gifts available for purchase this holiday season – contains books, pencils, erasers, scissors and even a radio that help provide a temporary school for children in the midst of war, natural disasters and other emergencies. What’s really cool is that the aluminum lid of the box doubles as a blackboard.
You have an opportunity to purchase this unique gift in honor of a loved one while providing at least 40 children with a temporary school and a chance to continue their education. Few gifts are as innovative as this temporary school for children. Learn more about School-in-a-Box and many other lifesaving Inspired Gifts at inspiredgifts.org. As we count down the 12 Days of UNICEF, don't forget to join us tomorrow for another UNICEF Cards and Gifts or an Inspired Gifts selection from a UNICEF celebrity supporter.
