Match: Give kids the best birthday gift money can buy

Since 1990, UNICEF has helped cut the under-five mortality rate by more than half — which means today, more than TWICE as many children get to celebrate their fifth birthdays around the world!

We’re throwing a massive fifth birthday party, and you’re invited! Celebrate our progress for children’s survival, and give today to help us keep going — until the number of under-five deaths is down to zero.
