Lucky Dog-Big Faith

Lucky Dog-Big Faith

Notes from the Artist:

Hi,

『Big Faith” is my name.
My mom wrote a story about me and “Big Hope”. If you are interested, you can find out more.. from luckypals.blogspot.com

I really want to keep my name if you don’t mind!

I am from Lucky Dog family. My size is about 7” x 4” Tall.

I was delivered by my mom: P.L. with inspiration and positive mind!

I am not a toy, but a pal to talk to, smile at, sleep with, or take me anywhere with you.

So, please supervise us if you want me to stay with a young child( under 5). Do not leave us alone, We do not want both of us get hurt.

I have a tag with a red string (symbol of luck) . Did you notice? “To love and to cherish”
I want to be loved and cherished, and I will return you an endless friendship.

How Lucky! If you believe it!

*My mom has her initials on everyone of us.

*Black stand and sign are not for sale, display only.

*Each lucky pal is made from my own design, with brand new socks. Eyes, nose or whiskers are either hand embroidered or felt applied.

United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF)

http://www.unicef.org

UNICEF is the driving force that helps build a world where the rights of every child are realized. We have the global authority to influence decision-makers, and the variety of partners at grassroots level to turn the most innovative ideas into reality.  That makes us unique among world organizations, and unique among those working with the young.

We believe that nurturing and caring for children are the cornerstones of human progress.  UNICEF was created with this purpose in mind – to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path.  We believe that we can, together, advance the cause of humanity.

We advocate for measures to give children the best start in life, because proper care at the youngest age forms the strongest foundation for a person’s future.

We promote girls’ education – ensuring that they complete primary education as a minimum – because it benefits all children, both girls and boys. Girls who are educated grow up to become better thinkers, better citizens, and better parents to their own children.

We act so that all children are immunized against common childhood diseases, and are well nourished, because it is wrong for a child to suffer or die from a preventable illness.

We work to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS among young people because it is right to keep them from harm and enable them to protect others. We help children and families affected by HIV/AIDS to live their lives with dignity.

We involve everyone in creating protective environments for children. We are present to relieve suffering during emergencies, and wherever children are threatened, because no child should be exposed to violence, abuse or exploitation.

UNICEF upholds the Convention on the Rights of the Child.  We work to assure equality for those who are discriminated against, girls and women in particular. We work for the Millennium Development Goals and for the progress promised in the United Nations Charter. We strive for peace and security. We work to hold everyone accountable to the promises made for children.

We are part of the Global Movement for Children – a broad coalition dedicated to improving the life of every child.  Through this movement, and events such as the United Nations Special Session on Children, we encourage young people to speak out and participate in the decisions that affect their lives.

We work in 190 countries through country programmes and National Committees. We are UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund.

EFC Team donated $28.00 to UNICEF in November.

Necklace - Sweet Lavender-Colored Chrysanthemum Cabochon and Faux Pearls strung from 22K Non-Rust Gold Chain from Korea

Necklace - Sweet Lavender-Colored Chrysanthemum Cabochon and Faux Pearls strung from 22K Non-Rust Gold Chain from Korea

Notes from the Artist:

My designs are based on many things that I love in my life – oriental stuff, nature, anything whimsical, pretty, simple and elegant. Truth to be told, I can’t decide which is my favorite style and so everything in KATHEYL has a bit of this and that.
