Planning for October.
Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF
It's not too early to start looking for those little orange collection boxes for Trick-or-Treat for UNICEE the annual program to raise awareness and urgently needed funds for children in developing countries around the world. Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is the original Kids Helping Kids campaign, inspired and powered by kids in the United States. From its inception in 1950, the campaign has raised over $132 million. The funds raised have improved and saved the lives of children worldwide. For example, $1 will immunize a child against measles for life, $2.50 will provide basic school supplies for one child, $10 will provide a month's supply of high-protein biscuits for three children, and $150 will supply clean water for an entire village. Students who participate in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF develop strong community spirit and a sense of global awareness. Encourage your friends, associates, students, and children to join in with Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. Order your collection boxes online at unicefusa.org/trickortreat, or call 1-800-4UNICEF. Teachers, parents, and others will find helpful tips, suggestions, and fun ideas for organizing your own fundraising program. Explore the UNICEF Web site for ideas and downloadable materials for your Trick-or-Treat campaign.
