Caradine, 13

Caradine sits in an empty classroom in Man, a western town in Côte d’Ivoire where hundreds of people took shelter during the recent post-election conflict. Caradine’s school, like many around the country, was closed due to political instability. As a UNICEF-trained volunteer peer educator, she spent her time teaching displaced children about hygiene, sanitation and other critical life skills. Many people have since returned home, but the situation remains unstable.

I was at Pottery Barn today, getting a gift for my friend’s upcoming wedding, and I was very happy to see that FEED and UNICEF have partnered up for a Pottery Barn-exclusive water bottle that benefits UNICEF’s Tap Project, an effort to bring clean water to those in need. FEED also created several other products for Pottery Barn.

I’m so passionate about helping others. I love what the organizations like FEED are doing for not only other societies around the world, but for our own society. It’s so important to be a global citizen, you know? 

Keep questioning,

Do not forget.
