Pink has been named the latest ambassador for the United Nations Children’s Fund and she says that she is excited to use her big mouth for good.
During an appearance on Good Morning America, she was named the charity’s new ambassador. She told People magazine that it was her daughter Willow who inspired her to get involved. She said, “The fire was lit, obviously, because I’m a mama.”
Her first role as a new ambassador will see her be the spokesperson for the new initiative Kid Power. This campaign offers tracking bracelets to kids in order to inspire them to be healthier. She revealed, “Statistically, one in four kids in the U.S. are inactive. And I’m all about fitness and health and positivity. One in four kids, globally, are malnourished. So UNICEF has found a way, with Kid Power, to combat both problems at the same time. You’re getting kids super-motivated to move their feet, and you’re also creating global citizens, where they care, and they’re able to help other kids around the world.”
She has already taken a trip to Haiti in July for UNICEF. She said that the kids there were nothing short of inspirational. She added, “They’re so ready to fix their world. They just keep going. Kids are so resilient. I sat with this little four or five-year-old. And she just held her hands on my face and sang to me. She’s living in a one-room shack with her entire family and hardly any food, and she’s taking the time to sit with me and sing with me. The kids give me the most hope.”
