You can help reunite families

Can you imagine how desperately you would want to be reunited with your child in a natural disaster or a crisis? Are you horrified by stories of children being torn from their parents at the Mexico-U.S. border with no plans for reunification?

There are millions of displaced children in the world. Through UNICEF, you can reunite a child with their family.

Only $26 pays the transportation costs to reunite a child with his or her family somewhere in the world. That’s roughly the cost of one of my kids’ music lessons and a fraction of the cost of a week of summer day-camp. Throw in another $20 and you can cover one month of counselling.

You don’t have to feel powerless. Put some good back into the world. I’m glad I did.

Wishing you a wonderful summer.

P.S. I have no professional or personal affiliation with UNICEF, just a desire to help where I can.
