Kids Entertainment Professionals for Young Refugees (KEPYR) rallies the global children’s entertainment community – individuals and companies, executives and artists – in support of UNICEF USA’s critical and heroic work addressing the worst worldwide child refugee crisis since WWII. This year all donations will be earmarked for UNICEF's emergency $652M COVID-19 relief campaign. Refugee and displaced populations are at particular risk due to overcrowded and unsanitary conditions prevailing in camps and settlements and the underlying health issues already common in these communities.
KEPYR is a grassroots, entirely volunteer-run organization. As such, 100% of donations made through KEPYR go to UNICEF USA, with not a cent of your gift spent on administrative, staffing, or fundraising expenses. See the UNICEF USA logo on the top left of this page? That means we are a vetted and approved friend of their world-renowned non-profit. We warmly welcome friends from all of children's media - and other professions as well - to join this urgent effort. Your gift can be made directly on this page -- in your own name, the name of your company, in honor or memory of someone, or anonymously -- and will provide life-saving food, clothing, shelter, medical care, trauma counseling, and other vital services to the world's most vulnerable children.
