Children Invited to Submit Designs for U.S. Fund for UNICEF Greeting Card Contest

February 8, 2009

Deadline: March 6, 2009

The U.S. Fund for UNICEF ( ) has
announced a call for entries for its annual Pier 1
( ) greeting card contest, in which
a child’s winning design is turned into an official UNICEF
greeting card to be sold at Pier 1 Imports stores across the
United States during the 2009 holiday season. One hundred per-
cent of the proceeds from the sale of the card, as well as all
UNICEF cards sold at Pier 1, go to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to
help in its mission to reduce the number of preventable child-
hood deaths from 25,000 each day to zero.

The contest is open to children age 14 and under. All entries
must be hand-drawn. The children’s artwork will be judged on
artistic quality and creative interpretation of this year’s
theme, “Joy to the World.”

In addition to having their design turned into a greeting card,
the winner will receive a $5,000 scholarship, along with $500
worth of art supplies for his or her school. Visitors to the
Pier 1 Web site will also be invited to vote on their favorite
design from April 1 to 15, 2009. The “People’s Choice” winner
will receive $500 worth of art supplies.

Further information is available at the U.S. Fund for UNICEF
Web site.

  3. Dear Harold,

    Thank you for writing me at the Non-Profit Guru. I am assuming you cannot currently afford to hire a professional website designer. Therefore, I recommend you contact the folks at Tech, or solicit for volunteers on Craig’s List and other NGO network sites like,, CARE 2, and try to get a volunteer or an intern to help you develop a website. Web design students are a good idea, as they need to develop their work portfolio.

    Also check out these sites for possible volunteers, interns and assistance:

    I hope this is helpful!
