    I dont want to Hijack this thread but just one thing to say on this..,.

    DO NOT give money to UNICEF.

    There are much better organizations to give to where the money does not actually go into the hands of UN Bureaucrats, give to smaller organizations where the money actually gets to the people who need it and not the pockets of, (I think that the most recent UNICEF scandal involved IRAN using the Money to pay off terrorists) well, for lack of a more fitting word: BAD PEOPLE...

    UNICEF: Good Idea, Terrible Execution.

    Sorry, I meant Palestine.

    I'm not implying that UNICEF or for that matter the UN is being malicious in an attempt to fund terror.

    However UNICEF is negligent in following the flow of the money and though this money that was given to the Palestinian government to support their people was used by extremest leaders to pay off/compensate the family of Homicide Bombers, thus making the idea of being a homicide bomber more attractive to the average person who is having trouble supporting their family.

    It should be noted that I believe that UNICEF was a noble idea, however at this point, in the case of serving its purpose had become next to useless.

    My other $0.02

    I'm assuming you're talking about how UNICEF gave support to Palestinian children hurt by the war between them and Israel. However, I'm not finding anything about them sending money to actually help terrorists. If some was taken while they were trying to help, which I also can't find any info on, I don't see how that's any reason to stop supporting them either.

    A link would help, otherwise it's just conjecture.
