About Inspired Gifts
UNICEF Inspired Gifts is an innovative programme that gives you the opportunity to purchase actual life-saving items. They will then be shipped directly from both the UNICEF warehouse in Copenhagen and one of UNICEF’s many suppliers to help children in one of the over 150 developing countries and territories where UNICEF serves.
UNICEF Inspired Gifts isn’t just about making a thoughtful gesture — they make a meaningful difference as well. Inspired Gifts are real items such as mosquito nets, therapeutic milk, School-in-a-box kits — creative gift ideas that have an instant impact on kids all over the world.
Every day, 16,000 children die from preventable causes. Inspired Gifts can make an immediate and dramatic difference to get to a day when no children die from preventable causes and every child has a safe and healthy childhood - no more children dying from unsafe water, malnutrition or disease, and no more young lives lost due to the lack of shelter, immunizations, or basic medicines. Purchase a UNICEF Inspired Gift today as a holiday gift donation on behalf of your family member, friend or even yourself!
Inspired Gifts respond to the real and changing needs of children around the world, so there may occasionally be a case where the item you selected may be substituted for another because there is a greater need for it. Wherever possible, we will keep that substitution within the same category – for example, a gift of measles vaccines may be substituted for polio vaccines. We hope that through your purchase you are trusting us to make the best use of your gift to help children who need it right now.
