Supporting Save the Children's mission is a powerful way to help change children's lives around the world

    The Sam Simon Challenge promises to match donations up to $1 million to support the work of Save the Children, a humanitarian organization serving children and families in need in the United States and worldwide. Donations must be made before midnight Eastern Time on December 31, 2007 through Save the Children's website at: http://www.savethechildren.org/matchinggift

"Supporting Save the Children's mission is a powerful way to help change children's lives around the world," said Sam Simon. "I've seen Save the Children in action in Latin America and the Himalayas, and I've met children and families whose lives were transformed and whose futures hold great hope because of your support. Donations through the Sam Simon Challenge will help the organization respond to children's urgent and ongoing needs - not just during crises, but every day."

"Particularly around the holidays, many people are inspired to give to those in need," said Save the Children President and CEO Charles MacCormack. "Thanks to Sam Simon's generosity, those who are considering a charitable donation before then end of the 2007 tax season, can see their gift doubled, with the potential of raising $2 million to support children in need."

Save the Children is the leading independent organization creating lasting change for children in need in the United States and around the world. Save the Children USA is a member of the International Save the Children Alliance, a global network of 28 independent Save the Children organizations working to ensure the well-being and protection of children in more than 110 countries.
