Mission: As the oldest of 36 national committees for UNICEF throughout the world, the mission of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF is to promote the survival, protection, and development of all children worldwide through fundraising, advocacy, and education. Our work is accomplished through a collaborative tapestry of individuals, non-governmental organizations, corporate partners, faith-based organizations, the media, grass-roots groups, and children themselves, all of whom have joined UNICEF to help shape a world where the basic needs and human rights of every child are realized. A world where all children share in the joy and promise of childhood, realizing their rights to dignity, security, and self-fulfillment. Since 1947, we have provided more than $1.6 billion in cash and Gifts-in-Kind (donated supplies and services) to assist UNICEF?s lifesaving programs.

I can't stand seeing this vitriol repeated. The age old story of Caryl Stern (or, in other tellings, UNICEF executive director Tony Lake, or before him Ann Veneman) making "$1.9M a year" and driving an expensed Rolls Royce is as untrue as it is absurd. Moreover, the US Fund for UNICEF consistently ranks as one of the most efficient non profits in its field, with overhead of less than 6%. Over .90 on the dollar goes to programs.

I would just like to say to all the judgmental people out there who are complaining about the CEOs pay, they're doing more than you. Even if only 25c of every $1 is going to the cause at least it's 25c for the cause.
