It’s Almost Time: Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF
It will be here before we know it! Halloween is less than two weeks away. Kids who have been planning their costumes are getting ready for the big night as parents help arrange all the details.
With all the excitement, don’t forget about Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF.
Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF began in 1950 as a way for kids to help other kids who need more than candy. Since then, it has become a tradition and has raised more than $170 million for the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, which ensures that 91.2 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to children.
$1 gives a child 40 days of clean, safe water
$5 feeds a malnourished child
for 5 days
$10 vaccinates 280 children
$100 protects 100 kids from malaria
$500 installs a water pump to serve a village
It’s easy to order Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF Collection Boxes or download the DIY Fundraising Kit, and this year, there’s an option to set up an online fundraising page! Your kids can reach beyond the doors of your neighborhood when they let friends and family know about their goal to help other kids around the world.
