Audrey, UNICEF Ambassador

(Images from UNICEF)

We watched Charade on Saturday night (very fun!), and afterwards, I looked up Audrey Hepburn's bio. How could I have forgotten her work with UNICEF later in life?! She was one of the original Goodwill Ambassadors and traveled all over, right up until her death in the early 90s. 

These were shot during a time when development photography leaned heavily toward the dark and serious, even with children. These are all so happy and bright! How great is the photo of her driving the rickshaw in Bangladesh?!


  1. Love Audrey Hepburn! She's definitely an icon in so many ways.

  2. I love her, too! Such a great example of aging gracefully.

  3. I'd completely forgotten about Audrey's work for UNICEF and I've never seen photos so these were really interesting to see. It's so rare to hear about the good people did while they were alive so thank you for this.
