The World of Children Award is sometimes referred to as the “Nobel Prize for child advocates”. It recognizes and provides funding for some of those who make a big difference for children worldwide. This year’s Advocacy Award Recipient is someone we’re talked about in the past on this blog: Lauren Bush Lauren, the originator and founder of the FEED Bag that has helped so many children around the world. Past honorees have included amazing people around the world who have improved childrens’ medicine around the world; helped comfort and support children faced with illnesses, poverty, or violence; and otherwise helped the neediest and most innocent people in the world.
Their annual award event is this coming Thursday in New York City. In commemoration, they’re selling two beautiful pieces of jewelry.
The first is a sterling silver horseshoe key chain:
This will sell for $250. It’s made of sterling silver and features the signature World of Children Award logo. It’s available for purchase here.
The second is a Sterling Silver Necklance, also inspired by the World of Children Award logo and created by jewelry designers Adam Shulman and Heidi Nahser Fink of James Banks Design.
It sells for $1000 and is available for purchase here.
100% of all contributions of both items will help World of Children Award to fund projects that exclusively support vulnerable children all around the world. For instance – purchasing silver horseshoe key ring could provide a full month of rice for 25 children in Cambodia, or self-defense training for more than 1,000 vulnerable young girls worldwide, or go to help someone like honoree Triveni Acharya, who rescues victims of child trafficking, or honoree Mead Welles, who gives essential prosthetic devices to children in third-world countries with limb deformities. In its 16-year history, World of Children Award has invested more than $5 million in programs led by 100 Honorees serving vulnerable children in 150 countries.
