Show your child the world with Paddington

Sign up for a monthly donation and as a bear-sized thank you, Paddington will send a child in your life a mail package that contains postcards from around the world (and so much more!) every month for 12 months. With each package, they’ll explore a different country with Paddington and learn more about the life of a child who lives there.   

Perfect for children aged 4-10, Paddington’s Postcards is a wonderful way to teach your little adventurer about other children, families and communities around the world. And your monthly donation helps UNICEF support children every single day by investing in their health, safety and future all year long.  

Everything you and your child will receive from Paddington each month:
