UNICEF Needs Help

UNICEF has recently sent an e-mail about the middle east crisis. Clay has just posted a blog with content of the UNICEF e-mail. I would post Clay's blog, but since it is against the Official Fan Club rules to post OFC content outside of OFC, I will post the UNICEF letter which Clay used as the basis for his blog instead:

Dear Friend,

As hostilities in the Middle East continue, innocent children are bearing the brunt of the conflict. More than a third of those already killed and injured have been children. With staff in Lebanon since 1948, UNICEF has been able to rapidly assess the situation of the estimated 350,000 children forced to flee their homes. I hope that you will be able to make a donation today to help these children in their hour of critical need. 38 tons of emergency supplies—including essential medicines as well as water and sanitation kits—were sent from UNICEF's warehouse in Copenhagen over the weekend. UNICEF staff on the ground are working around the clock to deliver aid to the children and families isolated by the destruction of roads and bridges. This is only the beginning of relief efforts in the region. UNICEF still needs $23.8 million to save and protect the children caught in this crisis. Please give generously. Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

Charles J. Lyons President, U.S. Fund for UNICEF

Clay did add the following message:

"In a situation such as this, I know that we all agree... no matter where your concerns lie politically or emotionally, the world's children are of primary importance and their safety and well being should be a number one priority."

Please, check out the UNICEF website right now at
www.unicefusa.org to find out how you can help!

Clay has had UNICEF set up a special link for donations:

Thanks for this blog publicizing this great need. And thanks to Clay too. Clay Aiken is truly the "Measure of a Man."
