New York Knicks star Tyson Chandler unveiled and auctioned off his exclusive photography in Chelsea this past September. The showcase, A Year in a New York Minute, featured 16 photos Chandler shot that encapsulated his year; including his trip to Africa. Proceeds from the auctions were donated to UNICEF.
UNICEF provides humanitarian support and development assistance that benefits children in developing countries across the globe. In 2011 UNICEF provided the following services to locals in Haiti:
- Malnutrition screening and treatment for 400,000 children
- Nutrition and breastfeeding counseling for 500,000 new mothers
- Reunification of more than 2,700 children separated from their parents
- Routine vaccination coverage for almost 80% of Haiti’s children, up from 58% previously
