Silence is Acceptance

My family has about three or four containers which are placed throughout our home. We use these containers to hold our pennies for UNICEF( United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund). At the end of a month or two, we go to our local market which has a COINSTAR machine. We dump the coins into the machine, the machine tells us how much we have and we can donate that amount directly to UNICEF from the COINSTAR machine, which also gives us a receipt.

I love UNICEF and the work that it does with children. I am especially moved by its work with children who are sexually exploited. The slogan Silence is Acceptance is powerful and a call for us to open our eyes and hearts and take a stand. Please view this photo essay and save your pennies and give them to
