To foreigners, the Himalayas are a beacon of beauty but for a select few groups, the Himalayas are home. The mountain range—and its surrounding—is a way of life for various ethnic groups in Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, and India, many of whom have difference experiences with education compared to their western constituents. This virtual speaker panel explores the intersectionality of education in the Himalayan lifestyle.
During this event, we’re going to discuss UNICEF’s goals for sustainability and how local and global organizations have been working towards them. We hope that everyone gains a better understanding of the issues at hand as well as take away a few action items that can easily be implemented in all of our lives!
Challenge yourself to running or walking 20 miles over the month of May (5/1/21-5/31/21), improving your health while simultaneously contributing to UNICEF's global efforts to make sure COVID-19 vaccines reach those most in need. The secondary effects of the pandemic have been devastating for children, and your donation can help.

Here's how it works:
1. Sign up by donating a minimum of $20 to UNICEF (a contribution of just $20 can vaccinate up to six people). All registrants will get a 10% off promo code to A Runner's Mind running shop upon registation (so your donation may return itself with the purchase of some new running shoes;)). https://arunnersmind.com/
2. Commit to running or walking a minimum of 20 miles over the month of May. Record your results via the Nike Run Club App or any other recording app/device (more specific instructions given upon registration).
3. After all results are tallied in June, the three participants who walked/ran the most miles over the course of the month will receive a $50 gift certificate to spend on a range of amazing gifts/items at the UNICEF market. https://www.market.unicefusa.org/
In sum, this is really a win-win for everyone. No one is truly safe from COVID-19 until everyone is safe.

The team that created the book, "We Stand Together, Just Six Feet Apart," is currently donating all of the book proceeds* to UNICEF and their COVID-19 relief work that focuses on ending the pandemic. UNICEF’s mission to “provide health care and immunizations, safe water and sanitation, nutrition, education, emergency relief and more” to children is key at all times and especially during a pandemic. The current goal is to raise $3000 for UNICEF, which will cover the cost of at least 1000 vaccines ($3/vaccine). We encourage anyone who is looking for a way to give back to consider donating to UNICEF directly through our fundraiser/event page or purchase a book (all proceeds will then in turn be donated to UNICEF). *No portion of the purchase price is tax deductible. UNICEF does not endorse any brand, company, or service.
***Please share with your family, friends, neighbors, and on your social media to encourage others to support this fundraiser. And if looking for a new book, the book is encouraging, a wonderful way to continue to have positive conversations with children, and details this time in history. You can follow and connect with the team on instagram @justsixfeetapart. Please feel free to share your tips for how to weather the homestretch of the pandemic and stay healthy in mind, body, and spirit for a chance to be featured. The page additionally will be a space to share updates on fundraising efforts and good news stories as well so share an act of kindness you have witnesssed or your own good news.
On February 15, 2021, children who are passionate about both music and community service will use the gift of music to help raise money for children in need around the world. Join us for an evening of classical music while supporting the incredible work UNICEF does.
Children worldwide are faced with life-threatening illnesses. Many of these illnesses are preventable through vaccination, however, countless children do not have access to these life-saving treatments. The Masks For A Better Life program will hopefully lead to an increase in vaccines within third-world countries. The funds from the mask sales will be donated to UNICEF's Health and Immunization Global Program. The masks will be black and contain the Masks For A Better Life logo and one size fits all.
