UNICEF is privileged to have a long history of support from its ambassadors and high profile celebrity supporters, starting with Danny Kaye in 1954 and including such influential names as Audrey Hepburn and Peter Ustinov. See a photo gallery.
There are three types of high profile supporters:
Goodwill Ambassadors support UNICEF’s work globally and are appointed by UNICEF Headquarters in New York.
UNICEF UK Ambassadors promote UNICEF’s work within the UK and have shown a commitment to UNICEF through continued and consistent support.
High Profile Supporters support our work within the UK through a specific campaign or on a more short-term basis. All of them have been appointed because they have demonstrated a commitment to UNICEF’s mission.
