Approximately 14 million were affected -- of which at least 6.2 million were children, and 3.5 million were displaced -- of which almost 1.6 million were children.

Stanley Slotkin was a philanthropist who donated his time, money and a variety of historical and religious items to worthy causes throughout his lifetime. Mr. Slotkin distributed the Nativity Stones to museums, churches and individuals who found comfort or interest in a memento from Christ’s birthplace. For years, Mr. Slotkin gave The Nativity Stones to charitable foundations including the American Heart Association, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the American Lung Association to be used at their discretion. Often the stones were auctioned for fundraising purposes. He also visited the sick and terminally ill in hospitals all over the United States to give them stones to provide comfort and a way to reinforce their faith in Christ.

Today, Mr. Slotkin's family follows in his footsteps to fulfill his wish that the stones will be used to continue funding charitable organizations such as: the Church of the Nativity - Manger Square, Bethlehem; City of the Bethlehem - Bethlehem Municipality; Manger Square, Vatican Treasury, New York, NY; Vatican Jubilee 2000; Vatican City, Patron of the Art's Vatican Museum, Los Angeles; Greek Orthodox Church, Israel; Orthodox National Charitable Society, Manger Square, Bethlehem; Spanish River Church, St. Therese Church of the Little Flower, Reno, NV; Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, CA; Heart & Lung Association, Los Angeles; Junior League of Pasadena, Pasadena, CA; St. Augustine's Parish, Los Angeles, CA; Church of the Immaculate Conception, Los Angeles, CA; National Cancer Society; Westwood Presbyterian Church, Los Angeles, CA; Be An Elf - Christmas gifts for needy children; and APLA, AIDS and Project Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA.
