AGM-009868I haven’t watched the Disney Channel for about 14 years, but if I had to choose my favorite Mickey Mouse star it would definitely be Selena Gomez.

In the past, Ecorazzi reported that Gomez has spoken out about environmental initiatives, got hooked on books for charity, and even lent her fame to help dogs and cats in Puerto Rico. Now, as the youngest UNICEF Ambassador in history, Selena is getting serious about raising some major dough.

In early September, the Disney star spent time in Ghana, West Africa where she witnessed poverty on a whole new level. Gomez hopes to raise $1 million for the foundation by the end of this year – a $400,000 increase from last year.

Out of 195 countries, Ghana is ranked 30 for the highest mortality rates of children under the age of 5. “Every day 25,000 children die from preventable causes,” said Gomez. “I stand withUNICEF in the belief that we can change that number from 25,000 to zero.

Will Selena be able to raise the cash? We sure hope so! If you’d like to get involved with UNICEF’s efforts visit UNICEF.org.
