At the Register: Should Catholics support UNICEF?


Absolutely not.  Here are a few reasons why.

And for goodness’ sake, if a cute little Spiderman or vampire shows up on your porch with an orange UNICEF box, don’t harangue the poor kid.  Just say, “No, thanks, we support better charities.”

    My grandmother and mother both worked for Unicef at the headquarters in Manhattan many, many years ago. I remember the flat boxes we would get at school to fold out and collect pennies for Unicef. Times have certainly changed!

      I agree that UNICEF has a lot of problems. Are you familiar with CCHD? There are a lot of the same problems, but it’s even worse since it’s organized by Catholic bishops. Pax.
