UNICEF at 75 in New York City – A Celebration of 75 Years of UNICEF

November 30, 2021 @ 6:30 PM - 11:00 PM


What: On Giving Tuesday, UNICEF USA will host UNICEF at 75 events in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco and Washington DC. Presented by Johnson & Johnson, this year’s event will bring together UNICEF supporters across the country to celebrate UNICEF’s historic 75th year of lifesaving work. Funds raised at the event will support UNICEF’s mission to relentlessly pursue an equitable world for every child.

The evening will feature a short film showcasing UNICEF’s vital work from the past, present and future. Directed by Academy Award® nominated director Ben Proudfoot (A Concerto is a Conversation), the film will take audiences around the world to see UNICEF’s mantra of “we won’t stop” in action.

During the event the UNICEF Snowflake will be illuminated at the intersection of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, serving as a beacon of hope and compassion for children around the world. Designed by Ingo Maurer with 16,000 Baccarat crystals, the ornament was dedicated to UNICEF in 2002 by the Stonbely Family Foundation.

In addition to in-person events that will adhere to all state and CDC guidelines, guests will also have the option to stream the event from their own devices.

Why: UNICEF works in more than 190 countries and territories around the world and has saved more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization. As UNICEF celebrates its 75th anniversary, we’re at our most important moment in history. UNICEF has spent most of the year working to control COVID-19 around the world and restart children’s lives – but there is still work to be done.

UNICEF is working day in and day out to ensure equitable vaccine distribution worldwide and help build the world back better than it was before for children with a focus on education, mental health, vaccines, and elevating their voices. UNICEF won’t stop until every child has come back from COVID-19 and can achieve the kind of future they deserve.
