Wilbur, first grader, NY, UNICEF True World Hero

We're thrilled to have Wilbur join the TLC team! UNICEF has told us many wonderful things about him!

In response to the South Asian Tsunami of 2005, First grade New Yorker Wilbur asked his friends to bring money to donate to UNICEF instead of bringing presents for his birthday party. He said he was thinking of all that he had, and then thought about the children who had so little. Wilbur has been a yearly supporter of UNICEF through the Trick or Treat for UNICEF program. His generosity was inspired by a classmate who also asked for donations to UNICEF rather than gifts for her birthday, followed by a class trip to the United Nations in New York City. We think this generosity is pretty heroic for a first grader!

We're excited to have Wilbur call the TLC team in IA on Sunday night to give us some words of wisdom, a pep talk, and a count down to trick or treating! We can't wait to meet you, Wilbur!
