We're donating both of these to UNICEF, and they will be auctioning them off to help fund their invaluable work in Syria.

Syria's violence has now entered its third year, devastating childhoods for millions of children.

In refugee camps and inside Syria, UNICEF is providing children and their families with the basics they need to survive.
