Good things don't always come from waiting

When I was a little boy, every Halloween was a chance to amass a giant bag of chocolate and candies. However, with a little orange cardboard box in hand, it also was an opportune chance to collect money for UNICEF.

I have always thought that UNICEF is one of the best charitable organizations in the world. Essentially the main focus of Unicef is the safety and well being of children all around the globe.

Take a moment to think about this. Every day, worldwide, approximately 29,000 children die from preventable causes like malaria and measles.

It's just an abstract number, until you consider that every day you could fill every single seat of Jarry Park (The former Montreal Expos stadium) with it’s own dead body.

No matter what your position in society is, we are all very lucky to live in a country of wealth and plenty. Billions of people do not share that fortune.

Please take some time this year to consider a donation to UNICEF.

If you wait until Halloween, over 7,500,000 children will have died by then.
