Those of you who’ve been reading along know we’re pretty focused on finding new fun ways for your family to enjoy getting active—at home, on vacation, in the city and out on the slopes.

Why? Most certainly because we believe that active kids and families are happier and healthier. But also, we want to make sure you never run out of ways to have fun wearing your UNICEF Kid Power Band. Because every time you get active, you’re saving lives.

To date, you and more than 200,000 Kid Power members have unlocked funding that UNICEF has used to deliver over 52 million packets of therapeutic food to save children suffering from life-threatening severe malnutrition.

That’s a lot of lives saved. And, every year come spring when the UNICEF Kid Power school program launches, we see an impressive spike in those numbers when students across the U.S. unleash their boundless energy upon global malnutrition. 

For up-to-the-minute updates on UNICEF Kid Power students, check out Teach UNICEF’s Facebook and Twitter feeds. And, stay tuned for the launch of UNICEF Kid Power Month in May, when you can find out how to help bring this awesome program to "play-lanthropists" in your local school!
