Letter from the President
Dear friends of Child Foundation,
As the holiday seasons approach, we are reminded of the things that we are grateful for in our lives, most notably our family, friends, and other loved ones. Thanksgiving is a particular holiday in which we are reminded about the random generosity of one group to another group less fortunate. If not for the generosity and kindness of the Native Americans, it was almost a certainty that the American Colonists would not have made it through the winter.
Here at Child Foundation, it is our mission to connect the generosity of our donors and sponsors to the children that need it most. Without your support, it would be impossible for us to enable thousands of children to continue their education and pursue their lifelong dreams and aspirations. It is during this season of "Thankfulness" that we encourage you to make an additional one-time donation of $50 to our food package drive. Your donation will help a child with additional necessities during this time of year.
Peyman Raoofi, Psy. D.
President & CEO

UN Universal Children's Day Celebration
Universal Children’s Day Celebration was held on Sunday, November 23 at Roxbury Community Center. This event was a Joint Collaboration with Child Foundation, United Nations Association- USA Los Angeles Chapter, the Greater Los Angeles Chapter of the United States National Committee for UN Women, and the U.S. Fund for UNICEF.
Every year, Child Foundation, in conjunction with UNA-USA Pacific-Los Angeles Chapter, organizes a half day celebration and awareness-building event around the Universal Day of the Child. This year, they have decided to work collaboratively with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF and the Greater Los Angeles Chapter of the United States National Committee for UN Women, in order to celebrate not only Universal Children’s Day, but also the 25th Anniversary of the Convention of the Rights of the Child (CRC). The CRC imbues basic rights upon children and gives them a distinct set of rights, instead of having them looked upon as passive beings.
