UNICEF'S Kid Power Program Is Coming to LA
UNICEF Kid Power is launching right here next month! The program, which recently announced P!nk as its ambassador, will empower 70,000 elementary school children in 13 cities to help save the lives of severely malnourished children around the world. Each city will kick-off its own 30-day “UNICEF Kid Power Month” challenge for participating teams of students who will do their part to make the world a healthier place. For LA, it's February 22 – March 18. While taking steps to end global malnutrition, students will learn about the importance of physical activity and becoming global citizens.
Each child will receive a Kid Power Band, a durable, child-friendly fitness band that is part pedometer, part accelerometer, with which they can earn points by playing, running, jumping etc. Points unlock funding from Kid Power sponsors and supporters, and funding is used by UNICEF to deliver lifesaving packets of therapeutic food to children in need around the world. The more kids move, the more points they earn and the more lives they save.
You can launch the program with your kids at home by purchasing a band from Target and downloading an app. There's FREE shipping on all orders over $25!
