The purchase of this card has helped UNICEF support a child orphaned by AIDS. You too can make a diference by donating today. Visit www.unicef.org UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund, is an entirely voluntarily funded organization committed to using its 60 years experience to ensure every child’s right to health, education, equality and protection.
The interesting thing about this card is that it is not a postcard, but in fact a Christmas card, but was mailed as if it was a postcard in no envelope. It arrived safe and sound!
