Charity Hopping Around the World! (International Stop)



Welcome to the  'Charity Hopping Around the WorldGiveaway Hop which is hosted by 'I am a Reader, not a Writer' , 'Reading Away the Days' and ' Reading a Little Bit of Everything''. As usual my post is one of the first to go up as I am based in the UK and am governed by Greenwich Mean Time. As the majority of the other blogs that are taking part in  this hop are based in America and Canada, their posts will go up at 00.01 on the 30th March 2012, according to their specific time zones.


To gain entry to this draw you have to be a GFC Follower of my blog and leave a comment (also include your e-mail address with your comment so I can contact you if you are the winner!) . You can also gain an extra entry by 'liking' The Secret Writer' Facebook page. Just let me know what you have done in your comment. Once this has been completed, you will have  been entered into the draw. 


The charity that I have personally chosen to highlight within this wonderful blog hop is unicef.
UNICEF works with families, communities and governments in more than 190 countries worldwide to protect and promote the rights of all children.
This charity helps governments to build schools, train teachers and provide textbooks so that every child can get an education.
UNICEF supports families and communities to care for children and protect them against exploitation and abuse, fulfilling their right to a childhood. We work with partners to ensure that every child has the opportunity to take part in sport and play.
The charity supports governments to build and equip health systems, train health workers and provide food and clean water, so every child can be as healthy as possible. UNICEF is also the world’s largest distributer of vaccines to the developing world. In 2008, we supplied vaccines for 56 per cent of the world’s children, protecting them against death from preventable diseases.
UNICEF aims to involve children at every level of decision-making, from school councils to international summits, upholding their right to be heard. Working at the highest levels of government and through local staff and partners on the ground, we work to address poverty and discrimination so that every child is treated fairly.
UNICEF recognises that children are uniquely vulnerable to the impacts of HIV and AIDS and climate change. In 2005, we launched our global campaign, Unite for Children, Unite against AIDS, to bring about real and lasting change for children affected by HIV and AIDS. In 2010, we launched Carbon Positive, a tool that allows individuals and businesses to calculate their carbon footprint and support climate change adaptation programmes.

As there is such a selection of books available these days, I am offering the winner a choice of either a $20 (US) or £15 (sterling) Amazon Gift Voucher/Certificate, so the winner can choose their own  books! I will arrange that the prize is e-mailed to the winner on the completion of this draw! The winner can also ask me instead, to donate the cash value of their prize on their behalf to unicef, if they so wish.



One prize of either a $20 (US) or £15 (sterling) Amazon Gift Voucher/Certificate 


There will only be one winner from this draw. The gift Voucher/Certificate will only be offered in either US dollars or sterling. No other currencies can be catered for. Each entrant will be allocated a sequential number. After the closing date for this draw (4th April 2012 at 23.59GMT), the winning numbers entered for this draw will be chosen by Random.org. This is an International Giveaway Draw!

Good Luck Everyone!
