FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) works in more than 190 countries and territories to put children first. UNICEF has helped save more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization, by providing health care and immunizations, clean water and sanitation, nutrition, education, emergency relief and more.

This March for World Water Month, the UNICEF Tap Project is encouraging smartphone users to take a break from texting, calling, emailing and social media posting to help UNICEF save children’s lives. By resisting the urge to use their phones for just five minutes, participants unlock a donation equivalent to one day of clean water for a child in need.
