Trick or Treat for UNICEF

Friday, October 15, 2010

On Halloween night 60 years ago, America's children changed the world by helping children in need through Trick or Treat for UNICEF. Millions of dollars have been raised since that night, giving hope to children all over the world. Inspired and powered by "kids," Trick or Treat for UNICEF has enabled generations to make lasting changes in their communities.

If you have children, type in "Trick or Treat for UNICEF" in any search engine and find fun ways you can help them learn and get involved. There's also a section specifically for teachers. Or, just go to Toys R Us and pick up those familiar little orange boxes they can take with them on Halloween to raise money for a good cause. Remember, if a child knocks on your door and you're greeted with, "Trick or Treat for UNICEF," please know that your donations will literally save lives.
