Pandora marks second year of UNICEF partnership with new World Children’s Day charm
During the first partnership year, Pandora raised $3.4 million for UNICEF.
In 2019, Pandora entered into a long-term partnership to help UNICEF reach more than 10 million children and young people and provide them with opportunities to learn, express themselves and find work in the future. Today, Pandora continues its commitment to the partnership with the launch of an exclusive World Children’s Day charm with $15 from each sale donated to UNICEF.
“The future lies in the hands of young changemakers and we have the responsibility to support the world’s most vulnerable children to lead healthier and safer lives and fulfil their potential. We are promoting young people’s right to a voice and a brighter future. We look forward to launching the new charm for World Children’s Day and another successful year of our partnership with UNICEF,“ said Stephen Fairchild, Pandora’s Senior Vice President Global Product.
Pandora’s partnership with UNICEF funds learning and skills development, rights awareness and gender equality activities in Burundi, China, Nepal, Guatemala and Serbia. The partnership is also raising funds for UNICEF’s global humanitarian work around the world to ensure that every child survives and thrives.
Throughout the first year of the partnership, Pandora launched a series of new products as part of its Charms for change initiative in support of UNICEF. Pandora raised $3.4 million in total, including a $1 million donation to UNICEF’s #Reimagine campaign, which seeks to respond, recover and reimagine a world currently besieged by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“All children have the potential to become leaders, entrepreneurs, and innovators. But many of them, especially girls, don’t have access to opportunities to learn and fulfil their potential. This challenge has been amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic, but thanks to the support of Pandora and its customers, we can expand our work around the world to keep children learning and provide young people with the skills they need to become active citizens,” said Gary Stahl, Director, Private Fundraising and Partnerships, UNICEF.
The new World Children’s Day charm, a limited-edition globe-shaped charm that opens to reveal a heart, is available online and across stores globally today.
