Waltham, MA (PRWEB) November 16, 2013
PlanetShoes, an online shoe and accessories retailer from Waltham, MA, is collecting donations to UNICEF to provide relief to victims of Super Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. The typhoon, one of the most powerful on record, has negatively affected millions through death, displacement and destruction. UNICEF has stated that over 4 million children may be at risk.
With three major crises in a span of two months—from war to an earthquake to this typhoon—the Philippines are in need of desperate help, and UNICEF’s resources are stretched thin. “PlanetShoes is proud to offer a means to help those suffering in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan,” said Phil Meynard, President of Planet, Inc. “A simple $10 donation will help bring safe water, hygiene supplies, food and shelter to millions affected by this disaster.”
The United Nations Children’s Fund offers supplies, food, water and health care to millions around the globe affected by natural disasters and poor living conditions. Working in more than 190 countries and territories, UNICEF secures financial support and government funding to help those in dire need of support. With years of experience, transparency and unmatched dedication, UNICEF is consistently working towards their goal of allowing zero children to die of preventable causes. With 90.4 cents of every dollar received going directly towards programs that help children, each and every donation to UNICEF is a wise dollar spent.
