2018 HERO AWARDS BENEFIT

On April 19, 2018, we honored three previous World of Children Honorees and awarded our second annual Crisis Award in partnership with UNICEF USA.

Together, we changed the future for children in refugee camps; children who have been bullied; children longing for an education; and children in need of basic necessities and medical care.
