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 generosity.


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.
