|The "Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF" tradition
began in Philadelphia in 1950 when a youth group collected $17 in decorated milk cartons
on Halloween to help children overseas.
Kids love to help other kids. Over the past 55 years, millions of
American kids, schools, parents and partner organizations involved in
Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF have raised more than $127 million for
children in the developing world. This could not have been accomplished
without teachers educating about UNICEF and their students' heroic
Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF supports self-reflection and self-discovery,
the development of values, skills and knowledge, as students help
improve the lives of their peers around the world with health,
education, equality and protection.
Considering that UNICEF's work around the world
can save a child's life with as little as 12 cents, this extraordinary
support benefits millions of children! In addition to its life-saving
results, "Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF" is a wonderful vehicle to educate
American children about the value of helping others and to empower them
to make a difference.
