UNICEF Club Raises Funds and Awareness for Children Across the World

 

Helping children across the world is a key component of the Bloomfield Hills High School UNICEF Club. According to Leena Jandali (grade 12), who has been involved since 9th grade, “UNICEF is all about supporting children. Our mission is to protect the rights of every child and every adolescent through the money we raise.” 

The Club raises money for UNICEF through various fundraisers including bagel sales at the Model UN conferences, Halloween grams and sunflower grams which allow students to send seasonal messages to other students or staff members, and apples for International Teacher Appreciation Day. Members also raise awareness through flyers and infographics which are posted in the school. 

“You can tell that some people can’t help themselves and need others,” said club member Deema Abdullah (grade 12). “When groups come together they can make a really big change. I think it is important to be a part of that small change that makes a bigger one.”
