attention all L.A. area do-gooders!

Hey all you Los Angeles area Audrey fans, are you looking to do some good deeds but don't have a lot of time or money (or either)? UNICEF can still use you! I recently received this email and thought I'd share, in case anyone wanted to pitch in and channel their inner Audrey:

Dear Volunteer:

You are receiving this email because you are a registered volunteer in the greater Los Angeles area and we have a special opportunity in which we need your help!

The U.S. Fund for UNICEF will be hosting The Beverly Hills UNICEF Snowflake lighting! It’s a wonderful opportunity for Los Angeles residents to come together to do whatever it takes to save a child’s life and spread a little holiday cheer! We are looking for volunteers to help us pass out UNICEF fact cards, goodies and simply spread the message of UNICEF. We need approximately 20 volunteers to help us from 5 to 8 pm on Saturday, November 22nd, 2008 at 2 Rodeo Drive, corner of Wilshire Blvd. So if you are interested and are at least 18-years-old come join us.

Volunteers will be chosen on a first come, first serve basis, so if you are interested please email bmazin@unicefusa.org.

Regards,
Volunteer and Community Partnerships Department

P.S. For more information about the UNICEF Snowflake, please visit our website at unicefsnowflake.org

If you go to the Snowflake link just above, you can find more information about the snowflakes in LA and New York. I recently received another letter from UNICEF going into more detail about LA's ceremony, and it seems that Ambassador Joel Madden and Nicole Richie will be the ones lighting the snowflake. (I had no idea Joel was a UNICEF Ambassador!) There will also be performances by The 88 and Kreesha Turner, so even if you can't volunteer, you could stop by for some pretty lights and free entertainment.

I'm a UNICEF sponsor! :)

I wish there were more that I could do, though, than just support financially. I mean, I wish I could actually go places and do things, like Audrey did.

Thank you for adding me as a friend! I'm honored! :)
