UNICEF has been putting children first since its founding in 1946. They have helped to save more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization in the world. The Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF program has been around since 1950 and has raised more than $175 million for the U.S. Fund for UNICEF over the past 65 years.
One of the best parts of this program is it allows kids to be involved in the work of helping other kids around the world. It’s the original “kids helping kids” initiative.
Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF isn’t the only thing turning 65 this year. The iconic Peanuts gang is also turning 65, and will have their big-screen debut with The Peanuts Movie on November 6. Charlie Brown and friends are supporting the U.S. Fund for UNICEF’s Trick-or-Treat night too this weekend, so the kids in your life will be in great company!
On Halloween night let’s all remember to help the kids in this world who need more than just candy.
Take Action Challenge
Halloween is just two days away, but it’s not too late to get involved! You and your child can set up an online fundraising page for donations from near and far. Remember to clean out your change jars and be sure to forgo a few candy requests and swap them for change for UNICEF instead this Saturday!
