Thank you Unicef Canada for sponsoring this conversation. I am honored to share the news about the survival gifts.
The madness of the holiday shopping season is officially here! Whether you were out at midnight on Black Friday trying to score the best deals in town before finally falling asleep in an aisle or madly clicking refresh on your computer browser to get that hot online deal, there’s no denying that the madness has begun! I know your “to-do” list is huge but I’d love if you could take a moment to consider a very special gift that may not already be on your list: UNICEF CANADA Survival Gifts.
My daughter and I are so excited to share with you our unBOXing of some of the UNICEF Canada Survival Gifts. UNICEF Canada gave us the exclusive opportunity to unBOX possibilities and actually touch, feel and taste some of the survival gifts that typically go straight from the Copehagen warehouse to the people in the field after online purchase. These gifts may seem like such basic items to many of us, but to families living in less developed nations, they’re often considered a luxury. Watch our video.
A Closer Look at the UNICEF Canada Survival Gifts
UNICEF Canada Survival Gifts include necessities such as:
- Water purification tablets: For $19, 2,857 tablets are provided to families who need clean water.
- Bed nets: $9 for 1 pack
- First aid kit: $36
- Therapeutic milk: For 25 packets, it’s only $20.
- Plumpy nut: $10
- Baby Blankets: $22
Again, while these gifts seem like such basic items to you and me, they’re absolute luxuries to moms and children in other parts of the world. Did you know that every day, 1.600 children die from unsafe water? Or that 50% of deaths under 5 years old are attributed to under-nutrition? Now you understand why these Survival Gifts are so life-altering.
Want to take your gift even further? Send something special along with your UNICEF Survival Gifts. Give a community the gift of play with soccer balls. Inspire creativity in a budding artist with Art-in-A-Box. Then, bring the message home to your own children. Dedicate your gift in their name, then put the personalized card under the tree along with their gifts. When they unwrap their gifts on the big day, talk about the impact their Survival Gifts, along with the extra treats, makes on communities across the world.

that’s a great cause- you can’t live without water, it’s one of the most basic things we all need.
I still remember supporting UNICEF as a kid – what a great cause! I enjoyed seeing what kinds of things they are doing recently. What a great idea, and I would love to support this.
This is fantastic! I love this post. Thank you for sharing.
Great gifts from UNICEF! Love that they include water purification tablets. EVERYONE should have access to clean drinking water.
We definitely take for granted the simple things that are available to us. I mean I don’t even think about clean water. That is awesome that they are providing Water purification tablets.
While we need more permanent solutions to poverty this temporary hunger relief effort is commendable.
It’s amazing what a huge difference even a little donation can make. I love the work that UNICEF is doing.
Go Unicef! I had no idea that tablets like these could provide clean water and that there was such a need. I think we take for granted so much of the little things in life, like clean water.
Unicef is awesome! What a great service they are providing people! Thanks for sharing.
UNICEF is great doing well, I always seen this orientation sounds so sad.
Wow, $19 is not that much to pay for providing 2,857 tablets to families who need clean water. i couldn’t imagine living somewhere where the water wasn’t clean.
It makes me so sad how bad some people have it in other parts of the world. I’m glad that these kits will help them out.
Those are some great kits and will really help out. I’m glad they are doing something like that.
What a great idea. I am going to add this to my list of “No Box” Christmas ideas.
I have never heard of this kit or charity, but they both look great. What they have put together is super helpful for everyone.
This is so amazing and such a good way to give back. Something I’m going to look more into.
My kids used to collect pennies at Halloween for Unicef. I think these kits are a great way to give.
Unicef is a great charity to support. Everyone should have the right to clean water.
Unicef is so inspiring – they do so much amazing work!
UNICEF has always been a wonderful organization. This is a fine example of their work. :)
That is really great. A survival kit is definitely a must-have.
Thank you for the review! I love Unicef products.
Wow this is amazing. I think we take it for granted, I am so glad they help to those that are in need.
Unicef is making great strides in countries where it is needed the most. This survival box is wonderful and I am sure much needed in certain parts of the world.
I was part of a Unicef Campaign back in school, what an awesome organisation to work with.
