Score a World Cup goal for children! 9 June 2006

Sport is a universal language that unites people of diverse backgrounds and nationalities in a common cause. In that spirit of global cooperation, we invite you to join Team UNICEF and our UNITE FOR CHILDREN  UNITE FOR PEACE campaign.

Launched in partnership with FIFA, the international governing body of football, and the 2006 FIFA World Cup, which kicks off this week in Germany, the campaign aims to build a more peaceful world for children – where they all can enjoy their right to play in a safe and protective environment.

Giving a powerful assist to this effort are 15 world-class football players who have joined forces with UNICEF and MTV in a series of public service announcements – entitled ‘Superfans’ – that highlight the power of football to make a difference in young lives.

But you don’t have to be David Beckham, Thierry Henry or Hidetoshi Nakata to make the team. Whether you are a player, a fan or just someone who believes in UNICEF’s mission, please join the world’s greatest footballers in the following pledge to UNITE FOR CHILDREN UNITE FOR PEACE.

By joining Team UNICEF, I pledge to do everything in my power to ensure that all children grow up in a world at peace.

Sign the pledge and become part of a global movement for children. You will join thousands of teammates online and at the 2006 FIFA World Cup matches who share your concern for children affected by poverty, conflict and violence.

And the teamwork doesn’t stop there! You can score extra points by forwarding this e-mail to your friends and family, and urging them to sign the pledge.

Tell them they can also subscribe to our e-newsletter for regular updates on UNICEF’s work. If everyone receiving this message got just one other person to sign up for e-news, we would dramatically expand our reach and speed our progress toward the ultimate goal: health, education, equality and protection for every child.

Thank you for continuing support and the important position you play on our winning team.

For every child
Health, Education, Equality, Protection
