White circle button with "26,000." All lettering except for the final "0", which is blue, has a line striking through the middle.

At the 117th International Convention in Chicago, Empowering Women Honoree, Caryl M. Stern, president and CEO of UNICEF spoke about her trips to some of the poorest nations in the world. Each guest received a button like this to represent the 26,000 children who die each day because of poor living conditions and malnutrition. The zero represents UNICEF's goal to turn 26,000 into 0.
