Today's featured button: UNICEF. To win this button, just leave a comment and I'll pick a winner randomly. Good luck!
United Nations Children's Fund (or UNICEF) was created by the United Nations General Assembly on December 11, 1946, to provide emergency food and healthcare to children in countries that had been devastated by World War II. In 1953, UNICEF became a permanent part of the United Nations System and its name was shortened from the original United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund but it has continued to be known by the popular acronym based on this old name. UNICEF was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1965.
