Do you still remember reading your first book? Maybe it was a children’s book with beautiful images and text, a princess fairytale, or a story about wild adventures. Or was it a nonfiction book guiding you to the world of facts? From the first cover on, your reading skills have helped you learn new abilities, explore new ideas and fulfill your potential.
Today, there are many areas of crisis and emergency around the world. In those areas, there are children, who should be in school and learning, but are not, because their schools have been damaged or destroyed, or roads, villages and cities are too dangerous to go to. For these children sufficient reading skills are not easy to achieve.
This year we support UNICEF to give children in crisis areas an opportunity to go to school and learn to read. We have donated the money reserved for Christmas cards for building temporary schools and spaces where children can learn and play safe from harm, and where they are able to start creating their future.
We wish you and your loved ones a joyful holiday season and a happy and prosperous new year! Let's continue to build a smart, safe and smooth future together.
