UNICEF stands for the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund, or United Nations Children's Fund is the shortened version. It began in response to the aftermath of World War II.

UNICEF is one of the largest development agencies dedicated to working exclusively with children.

Supporters of UNICEF include children's entertainers the Wiggles, designer Jayson Brunsdon, Football Federation Australia and rock band the Killers.
