Have your classroom (and kids!) Trick or Treat for UNICEF

Pic 3Pic 1This Halloween, bring global education and service learning to your classroom and get students involved with one of the largest “kids helping kids” fundraisers! Youth volunteers across the United States will be changing the lives of children all over the world in a fun, educational and half-century old project!

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF began in 1950 as a way to help kids who need more than candy. Since then, children all over America have gone door-to-door on Halloween with UNICEF collection boxes, calling out, “Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF!” and have raised more than $170 million for the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. Funds have enabled UNICEF to save and improve children’s lives by providing health care, improved nutrition, clean water, education and more. Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF does more than just provide a way for children to help their peers. For parents, teachers and group leaders, it’s a time-tested tool that motivates kids to learn the value of helping others.
