"Thanks for Sharing" Los Angeles Premiere - Arrivals

Pink was just named the newest ambassador to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). The pop star explained her need to join the organization after becoming a mother (she has a daughter, Willow, 4 with husband Carey Hart). “I’ve always wanted to work with UNICEF,” Pink said on “GMA.” “It’s the one organization over the last 15 years just consistently been in mind for all the amazing things that they do and timing is everything and it worked out.”“When you have a child of your own and you try to imagine looking at them and not being able to feed them, it does something to you,” Pink added. She is already part of UNICEF with the program Kid Power, which provides health and nutrition programs around the world. The program gives kids fitness bands in an effort to keep kids active and learn about new cultures. “One in four kids in America are inactive and one in four kids globally are malnourished and UNICEF has brilliantly come up with how to connect the two,” Pink said. “You unlock therapeutic food packets, which I’ve seen with my own eyes bring children back to life.”
