George Harrison was an inspiration to CSN and musicians across the world. In 1971, George Harrison's friend Ravi Shankar asked him to help the children of Bangladesh. George took action by hosting the Concert for Bangladesh in support of UNICEF. We are proud to join the anniversary celebration and honor George's legacy by supporting the George Harrison Fund for UNICEF.

UNICEF has saved more children's lives than any other humanitarian organization in the world. Working in more than 150 countries, UNICEF provides children with health care, clean water, nutrition, education, emergency relief, and more. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF supports UNICEF's work through fundraising, advocacy, and education in the United States.
UNICEF is at the forefront of efforts to reduce child mortality worldwide. There has been substantial progress: the annual number of under-five deaths dropped from 13 million in 1990 to 8.1 million in 2009. But still, 22,000 children die each day from preventable causes. Our mission is to do whatever it takes to make that number zero by giving children the essentials for a safe and healthy childhood. For more information, visit www.unicefusa.org.
