NEW YORK, Dec. 3, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- See video from UNICEF USA  at:                

In lieu of traditional holiday giving this year, UNICEF encourages supporters to buy Inspired Gifts that will be shipped to a country in need. These vital essentials – which include oral rehydration salts, protein biscuits, mosquito nets and therapeutic milk – can make an immediate and dramatic difference in the lives of children in need. You can also purchase cards and gifts for your loved ones from UNICEF's holiday card and gift collection. This year's offerings include unique finds such as African or Indian beaded ornaments, handmade African necklaces, henna candles, baroque jewelry, and a variety of toys. You can also help support the cause by purchasing their holiday greeting cards. Every little bit, no matter how small, still makes a difference. A portion of sales from each item will go towards saving, improving, and protecting the lives of millions of children in more than 150 countries worldwide. Available video includes soundbites from Sissy Biggers and b-roll.
