Why Paddington and UNICEF?

Paddington is a champion for children in support of UNICEF. Paddington’s kindness, tolerance and perseverance in the face of adversity or marmalade-related mishaps make him the perfect champion for children.

With help from you and Paddington, UNICEF can continue to build a world where every child is happy, healthy and safe.

UNICEF receives 100% of your subscription and this will help our work to build a world where every child is happy, healthy and safe.  

When will my gift arrive?

A special welcome pack will arrive within 3 weeks.

If you’re buying it as a gift for someone else’s child…
Once you’ve completed your purchase, we’ll email the parent/guardian for consent to personalise your gift with the child’s name. Rest assured, even if we don’t hear back from them in time, your gift will be delivered on-time. It just won’t be personalised with the child’s name.

What can my monthly donation do for children?

Your monthly donation will support UNICEF’s work for children in 190+ countries. We make sure more of the world’s children are vaccinated, educated and protected than any other organisation.

With your support, we’ll work with families, communities and governments to tackle the root causes of poverty affecting children, as well as address their immediate needs. You’ll become part of our long-term work to keep the world’s most vulnerable children safe.

In one year, your £8 monthly donation could:

  • provide 145 vaccine doses to protect 72 children against measles, or
  • supply mosquito nets to protect 48 families from malaria, or
  • give exercise books to 290 children so they get the tools they need to learn

Thank you for supporting UNICEF’s work around the world.
