MSNBC's “Last Word” host Lawrence O’Donnell and UNICEF have raised over $4.7 million for the K.I.N.D Fund which brings desks to the school children of Malawi. Lawrence spoke with the Wall Street Journal about what inspired him to start the project nearly two years ago.
This year, Lawrence also unveiled a scholarship fund for girls. Carol Stern, President and CEO of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, was a guest on “The Last Word” to discuss goals of the new tuition program and accept Lawrence’s personal donation.
