Dear Kimberley,
The chaos and destruction caused by Typhoon Haiyan this weekend is absolutely devastating. Please read the message below from our friends at UNICEF to learn how you can help those trying to survive the aftermath of this disaster.
Thanks, as always, for all you do.
– The Care2 Campaign Team

unicef canada
Please donate to UNICEF’s EMERGENCY response in support of the victims of Typhoon Haiyan and your donation has the potential to TRIPLE in impact.

Dear Kimberley,

On Friday one of the largest typhoons ever recorded ripped through the Philippines where hundreds of thousands have been evacuated and are bracing for the worst.

Maximum sustained winds measured 235 km/h and wind gusts as high as 275 km/h. Initial images show trees uprooted like toothpicks. Buildings demolished. Homes washed away by a torrential storm surge.

A child stands little chance against this kind of storm.

There are reports of 10,000 deaths in a single coastal town. Up to 4 million children are believed to be living in the areas that were hit.

UNICEF prepositioned supplies in advance of the storm and is rushing staff, relief and more resources to the region. “…We know how vital it is to reach children quickly,” says UNICEF’s Philippines representative Tomoo Hozumi.

You can help this effort by donating to UNICEF’s EMERGENCY response. Every donation will triple in impact and go directly to relief efforts there.

Every moment matters for these children.


The last few months have been heartbreaking for children in Syria and now the Philippines. This is urgent and children’s lives are on the line, so I’m asking for your support.

Thank you for your compassion, your selflessness and your generosity in the face of such a heartbreaking crisis.


David Morley,
President & CEO | UNICEF Canada

*Thanks to our generous sponsors and the Government of Canada. For every dollar donated by individual Canadians to UNICEF Canada, the Government of Canada* will contribute a dollar to provide critical life saving assistance to the children affected by Typhoon Haiyan. Loblaw Companies Limited, UNICEF’s generous corporate supporter will also be matching all donations for Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines up to $25,000. This triples the impact of your gift.

The U.S. is about to destroy six tons of ivory to send the message to poachers:

Action Alert

November 2013

Follow Us Facebook twitter

Dear Kim,

On Thursday, nearly six tons of elephant ivory will be crushed into gravel at a secure U.S. Fish & Wildlife site in Denver.

Hundreds of elephants were killed for those six tons of illegal ivory. It’s too late to help them, but it’s not too late for you to help the rest of the world’s elephants.

There are fewer than half the number of elephants in the world than there were 50 years ago. With roughly 30,000 wild elephants being poached every year, there is no time to waste.

By destroying its stockpile of seized illegal ivory, the United States is sending a strong signal to the rest of the world.

But we need the U.S. government to take further action.

IFAW and a coalition of conservation organizations are calling on the United States to reinforce its commitment to protect elephants and other imperiled wildlife. We need you to ask your members of Congress to:

  • Support new and enhanced efforts to help protect elephants from heavily armed poachers.
  • Crack down on the organized crime syndicates behind the ivory trade.
  • Crush the demand for illegal wildlife products, by declaring all ivory off-limits for trade.

Help us get the message across. Please send a message to your members of Congress today, urging them to support a future for wild elephants.

The fact is the United States is one of the biggest markets in the world for ivory and other wildlife products. Each piece of ivory – every tusk, trinket and souvenir – being destroyed in Denver was seized right here in the United States. Those six tons highlight the unwitting impact that many Americans have on fueling the slaughter of wild elephants across Asia and Africa when they buy ivory. Loopholes in the law make it nearly impossible to enforce, particularly once ivory is smuggled past our borders.

Elephants need you to speak for them. Tell your members of Congress to do all they can to protect wild elephants and stop the ivory trade.

The U.S. has long been a global conservation leader. We must do all we can to halt the ivory trade that is decimating wild elephant populations, taking the lives of rangers on the front line, destabilizing local communities and national economies, and feeding political instability.

Please, help tip the balance in favor of wild elephants, starting with this one simple action. Tell your members of Congress to support programs to end wildlife trafficking and enact a moratorium on ivory sales in the U.S.

We have a chance to make a real difference for these amazing animals, but we need your help to spur our elected officials to action.

Thank you.

P.S.: It will take just a moment to help save elephants. Please let Congress know that wildlife trafficking has to end.
