We, the Kwangwoon Annals English newspaper group, decided to do something helpful for other people around the world. We were not too sure what we should do or could do. It seemed like we have reached an impasse. That is when we remembered UNICEF. We decided to spend some money at the UNICEF sponsored shops. That way, we can buy the required tools we need for ourselves, the group, and for school, as well as support children all over the world.

 

 

First Visit to the UNICEF Shop

We were fairly surprised and somewhat confused when we got to the UNICEF sponsored shop. When we have seen the items on the on-line UNICEF mall, we saw quite a diversity of great stuff we could use. However, the off-line sponsored shop we visited was just a small souvenir shop located in the kids section of the National Museum of Korea. Although we were disappointed, we continued our quest to support ourselves while supporting children all over the world. Most of the items they sold at the shop were kids toys and souvenirs, when we asked for UNICEF specific items; we received a calendar, a puzzle, some notepads and some key chains. The UNICEF calendar and notepads were really top-notch stuff, having multiple languages written on it with great outlines for easy use. The puzzle was great too; it was a unique and challenging 3D puzzle that shaped a sphere like resembling Earth. Initially we were greatly disappointed but the few items they had at the shop were great. The fact that buying such items helps children all over the world makes them even better! To those of you who want to spend your money wisely for the greater good of all, try the UNICEF shop. Both online and offline shops will surely bring a smile to you and children across the globe.

 

 

UNICEF?

UNICEF is an organization working to have rights of all the children all over the world realized. They are unique, powerful and influential. They believe that caring and nurturing children are the cornerstones of human progress and work to overcome the obstacles of childrens paths.

 

 

History of UNICEF

1946: UNICEF was first created by the UN to care for the children suffering from famine and diseases after the World War II.

1952: UNICEF became a permanent part of the UN.

1959: UN General Assembly adopts Declaration of Rights of the Child, defining childrens rights to protection, education, health care, shelter and good nutrition.

1965: UNICEF is awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for the promotion of brotherhood among nations

 

 

There are four off-line UNICEF shops in Seoul, and you can access the on-line shops from anywhere. The items in the shop may not be as cheap as those in the big department stores, but the idea of supporting the children in need makes it all worth it. The few extra thousand won you spend will help thousands of children.
