U.S. Fund for UNICEF Honors Volunteers With PRESIDENT'S VOLUNTEER SERVICE AWARD
Date:5/1/2008

Award is a Prestigious National Honor for Volunteer Service

NEW YORK, May 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In conjunction with National Volunteer Week (April 28th-May 2nd), the U.S. Fund for UNICEF today announced it has awarded 89 volunteers -- the most ever -- with the PRESIDENT'S VOLUNTEER SERVICE AWARD, a national honor offered in recognition of volunteer service.

Established in 2003, the AWARD is available on an annual basis to individuals, groups and families who have met or exceeded requirements for volunteer service and have demonstrated exemplary citizenship through volunteering. As one of thousands of Certifying Organizations participating in the AWARD program, the U.S. Fund for UNICEF confers the award to recognize the outstanding achievements of its volunteers.

The U.S. Fund for UNICEF has a long history of volunteer service, and more than 16,000 volunteers perform community service each year on behalf of the organization.

A few years ago, in an attempt to make a difference on a global level, Gigi Jordan and Alison Austin of New Hope, PA joined forces with a friend to create beaded jewelry and then donate all proceeds to UNICEF. The high school juniors, to date, have raised nearly $2000 for UNICEF's global programs that help save children's lives.

Slava Karaytcheva has assisted in the smooth operation of the Southwest Regional chapter of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF by aiding with major gift prospect research, event set-up, event registration, event follow up, communications with vendors and donors, data entry, filing, and various clerical duties as requested.

Over thirty awardees volunteer regularly at the U.S. Fund for UNICEF greeting card and gift shop in New York City. Some volunteers have been involved for more than 15 years.

For the past three years, 11-year-old Jasmine Fatourechi of southern California has gone into every classroom at her school to talk about the work UNICEF does. Jasmine's effor
