Inspired Gift Groupon 2012
To usher in the holiday season, UNICEF has partnered with Groupon to give netizens in Malaysia the opportunity to buy UNICEF Inspired Gifts on behalf of their friends and family. Inspired Gifts are real, life-saving and life-changing items that are provided to children around the world to help meet their needs and rights. When a gift is purchased, the donor's selected friend or family member receives an e-card letting them know that a gift has been sent in their honour.
The Inspired Gift Groupon costs RM12 and can buy 20 doses of polio vaccine to vaccinate six children against this highly infectious disease. Children under five years of age are most vulnerable to polio, which can cause lifelong paralysis and even death. While there is still no cure for this disease, children can easily be protected with life-saving and inexpensive vaccination drops.
Since UNICEF and its partners started the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) in 1988, the number of polio cases has been reduced by 99 per cent. GPEI aims to ensure that every child under five years of age gets vaccinated against this crippling disease.
