Trick or Treat for UNICEF helps save lives
To the editor:
Over the past 25 years, children have raised more than $1.5 million through Trick or Treat for UNICEF, giving hope to children all over the world.
Money raised by this effort is channeled to needs and crises worldwide. Trick or Treat for UNICEF is partnering with organizations like Rotary International and Zonta International to rid the world of polio, which has been reduced 99 percent since intensive efforts to immunize began. As long as polio exists anywhere, it threatens the lives of children. You can help meet the goal of eradicating this terrible disease by the year 2005.
Trick or Treat for UNICEF collection boxes are available at Pier One stores. Stop by and get boxes for your children. If a child knocks on your door yelling "trick or treat" and you see the orange UNICEF box, please know that any contributions you make will literally save lives.
