The annual sweet-treat extravaganza known as Halloween draws ever closer, and as parents prepare costumes and children get their legs in gear for their door-to-door excursion, we at the U.S. Fund for UNICEF have been reminding folks of how they can make Halloween count.
Serving as the original Kids Helping Kids® campaign, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF has provided American children an impactful way of making a difference in the lives of their peers in other countries for over 60 years. It’s one of the nation’s longest running youth philanthropy programs and is often a child’s first experience with volunteerism in the United States.
Moving into the next decade of our long-celebrated campaign, this year we’ve introduced innovative digital elements to help build excitement and engage supporters beyond door-to-door and into the social space where people are already interacting and sharing information. And we’re excited to see the story has caught on. Below are just a few highlights of where you’ll find Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF mentioned online.
