What is UNICEF Kid Power?

UNICEF Kid Power is a growing movement of kids and families activating their inner heroes, to end global malnutrition one step at a time. With their UNICEF Kid Power App or Band – the world’s
first Wearable-for-Good® – kids transform their activity into lifesaving nutrition that UNICEF delivers to severely malnourished children around the world. It’s no wonder that the UNICEF Kid Power Band was named by TIME Magazine as one of the ‘Best Inventions’ of 2016.

Show the World Your Kid Power

Come join us at one of our Kid Power Month Events in Atlanta, Los Angeles and Chicago! Click here to RSVP or for more information.

This May, UNICEF Kid Power will motivate kids and families across the United States to join the movement, get active and help save lives. This movement will empower the next generation of global citizens.

Now more than ever, we need clear and meaningful ways to help a neighbor whether that’s a neighbor next door or 1,000 miles away. Using their boundless energy and inner power, kids will run, jump, skip, and play throughout the month of May to help kids around the world. By activating their Kid Power, they are helping to save the lives of other kids in need.
