DCI Child Rights Awareness Program to Be Held in Evanston, Illinois on June 19, 2010

US-based charity fights for CHILD RIGHTS

Cheshire, CT (May 25, 2010): Distressed Children & Infants International, a US registered, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (Tax ID# 810671495), is hosting a “DCI CHILD RIGHTS awareness and fund raising program” organized by DCI Illinois Chapter. The program will take place on June 19, 2010, from 5:00 PM-11:00 PM, at Chute Middle School, Evanston, Illinois. Children from Bangladeshi and Indian Communities are going to perform and give message to the audience to enhance the child rights awareness. Please see the attached flyer for further information.

The goal of DCI’s program is two-fold: to raise awareness of children’s rights in local, national, and international communities, to raise funds for alleviating child labor, hunger, and poverty around the world.

This event is open to all; however, we request you purchase the tickets ahead, as the venue’s seating capacity is limited. The tickets for the event are $10 for adults and children under 18 years are free.

All proceeds from the event will be used for Sun Child Sponsorship Program, Orphan Support Program and Childhood Blindness Prevention program through DCI.

We invite all our sponsors, donors and friends to attend the program and also to visit our booth. Please come to help our mission and learn how DCI is changing the lives of underprivileged children in Bangladesh, how the life-long benefits U.S. children are gaining by volunteering for DCI, and how DCI’s volunteer programs are also connecting the young generation of expatriate families to their roots in Bangladesh. DCI will also have an information booth at this event. More information on this event is available at http://dcishow.salamstamp.com http://www.distressedchildren.org
