    The always-stylish and ever-talented Lenny Kravitz has recorded a public service announcement urging people to join UNICEF to bring about an end to preventable child deaths. Some 6.9 million child deaths every year are due to preventable causes, of which as many as 1.5 million are from vaccine-preventable diseases.

    "I'm a parent, and the thought of anyone's child dying of something we can prevent is just unacceptable to me," said Kravitz. "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."

    Lenny Kravitz, who is currently recording a new album from his home in the Bahamas, is issuing the new PSA just a year after he lent his support to UNICEF's efforts to save and improve the lives of millions of children by providing them with access to clean water and adequate sanitation.

    Although immunization is one of the most successful and cost-effective means of saving children's lives (immunization against measles can cost less than $1) nearly 20 percent of the world's children are still not immunized.

    Watch the PSA below. Is it us or does Kravitz's speaking voice sound like that of James Franco? Just a little bit? Who cares, right? It's all about the cause.



    What can you do to help spread the word about preventable child deaths? We suggest posting this PSA to your social media networks or embedding it. Knowledge is power.
