Ms Mary Roodkowsky from the United Nations, spoke about children’s rights and what we can do to help improve the lives of children around the world. Ms Roodkowsky discussed the ways in which UNICEF’s efforts help the people of the world and described many of her experiences with the organization. She also acknowledged SurfAid International for their efforts towards accomplishing their mission and for taking the initiative to start such an organization.
The message conveyed by the event was that everyone can take a proactive stance in helping the people of the world. In addition to the wonderful presentations that were offered, there was a catered dinner that was provided through donations from over ten local restaurants. The event was successful in raising $460 toward the efforts of SurfAid International. For more information on SurfAid visit: www.surfaidinternational.org.
