>> that's right, guys. as you saw, the unicef report came out. the numbers are staggering, as dr. nancy just showed us, making a full-blown commitment across all platforms here at nbc news. let's highlight some again. 1.2 million syrian children or refugees, almost a half million of them in the becka valley in lebanon. that's where we sent jerome, a photographer, down there, to put faces you can see on the board, behind these millions of children. and at nbc, the live documentary is there. you can log on, watch it. here's some of the charities and how you can help. probably the most important information right here, doctors without borders, the u.n. agency, save the children , unicef. most importantly, go to for more. and you can follow the conversation as we're relaying all this information, using this hash tag, #syria'schildren. we'll have much more on this throughout the morning. guys?
