The one thing all children have in common is their rights. Every child has the right to survive and thrive, to be educated, to be free from violence and abuse, to participate and to be heard. ” — Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

With so much tragedy happening around the world affecting people of all ages, we think it’s important to recognize the innocent young lives that are bearing a heavy burden from this evil world. This Universal Children’s Day, we are recognizing children from all over and we hope to raise awareness on the lives of the innocent and suffering who lack the opportunity to simply be a kid.

On Dec. 14, 1954, the General Assembly advised all countries to establish a Universal Children’s Day to be observed as a worldwide companionship and understanding of children around the globe. This day is devoted to promoting ideals and objectives that fight for the welfare of all children.

We support the rights of children and the hope that all young lives will be raised in a just and fair world. We support organizations committed to pulling children out of poverty and aiding them in building a better life through education, fair trade and community development. We recognize the magnitude of this effort and we remain committed to helping others.
