About the partnership

The Pier 1 Imports /UNICEF/Owlkids Greeting Card Contest started in Canada in 2006 to raise awareness among Canadian school children about UNICEF’s work supporting the hardest to reach children around the world. It has inspired kids from across Canada to use their artistic talents in a meaningful way. Pier 1 Imports started selling UNICEF greeting cards in North America in 1985 and has raised more than $47.6 million in the U.S. and Canada. Funds from the sale of cards support UNICEF programs that provide healthcare, immunizations, clean water, nutrition, food security, education and emergency relief to millions of children and families worldwide.
