Most people don’t know that Montblanc regularly supports various good causes, often related to art and music but also to one of the biggest causes in the world Unicef.
The United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund was created by the United Nations General Assembly on 11 December 1946, to provide emergency food and healthcare to children in countries that had been devastated by World War II. The Polish physician Ludwik Rajchman is widely regarded as the founder of UNICEF and served as its first chairman from 1946. On Rajchman’s suggestion, the American Maurice Pate was appointed its first executive director, serving from 1947 until his death in 1965. In 1950, UNICEF’s mandate was extended to address the long-term needs of children and women in developing countries everywhere. In 1953 it became a permanent part of the United Nations System, and the words “international” and “emergency” were dropped from the organization’s name, making it simply the United Nations Children’s Fund, retaining the original acronym, “UNICEF”.
Montblanc has created several items in honor of the Unicef organisation, among them this Meisterstück Platinum series ballpoint with reference 109355 that features a genuine sapphire in the cap top. It comes in an authentic Montblanc three piece leather cover.
