Famed rocker wants to make sure kids are properly immunized
Lenny Kravitz is lending his name to a new campaign to help support the United Nations Children’s Fund in their mission to stop preventable child deaths. The Grammy-winning rocker appears in a short public service announcement (PSA) in support of the fund in which he discusses the benefits of UNICEF’s immunization program, stating that if appropriately supported, it can help save the lives of 6.9 million children per year.
Kravitz says the cause hits close to home. “I’m a parent, and the thought of anyone’s child dying of something we can prevent is just unacceptable to me,” Kravitz said in an official statement. “Vaccines cost so little, and when UNICEF says 100 percent of the world’s children can be immunized with enough funding, I think it’s important to support that goal.”
Kravitz took time off from recording his new album, “Negrophilia,” to record the PSAs about the importance of making sure every child has life-saving immunizations. On top of doing the PSAs, Kravitz has announced that he will use his social media platforms to share UNICEF’s request for 100 per cent immunization.
