Last fall, as the Boston Global Citizenship Fellow, I had the privilege of being part of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF’s Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign. The campaign was everywhere in Boston: in schools, in shops, at community events, farmers markets, and at private fundraisers. The amount of energy that people put into raising awareness and funds for UNICEF was incredible. Here are some of my favorite Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF moments.

This Halloween, for the 62nd year, kids went door-to-door to Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, helping UNICEF fulfill the needs of the world’s most vulnerable children. Kids, schools, families, community groups, corporations, and non-governmental organizations joined in supporting America’s longest-running youth engagement campaign through a variety of ways, all joining together to make this year’s campaign one of the best ones yet.
A large part of the success of Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is due to the efforts of companies and organizations that champion for this extraordinary campaign. We’d like to give a big thank you to our supporters who are helping to stand up for vulnerable children around the world through their participation in this year’s campaign.
Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF has engaged generations of grassroots supporters of UNICEF’s mission to reduce the number of preventable childhood deaths to ZERO. As one of the longest-running volunteer initiatives in America, it is only fitting that Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF will again join forces with UNICEF’s Change for Good program on American Airlines, a volunteer-based effort.
Halloween! The absolute best. It’s got to be my favorite holiday. Design an outrageous costume. Put on crazy make-up. Become a totally different person or a completely wild creature. Do a total transformation. Then head out into the mystery of the night!
I love to dress up and express myself. Can you tell? That’s why I love Halloween. And I guess I’m pretty lucky. As an actress, I express myself through unique characters all the time. I’ve had all kinds of different movie roles. I’ve played a kid vampire. I’ve been a girl with psychic powers. In one film, I was even a purple-wigged crime fighter.
Fall is here—which means it’s finally time for Halloween! For as long as I can remember, I have seen UNICEF’s orange Trick-or-Treat boxes make the rounds in neighborhood, often carrying one myself. This year, kids can get even more involved by designing their own Trick-or-Treat collection boxes, which they can then enter into our Create-a-Character Contest. We’ve also revamped the boxes’ original look and designed new boxes with six brand-new characters.
The U.S. Fund for UNICEF New England Regional Office recently hosted a community event focused on fostering global citizenship. The event, “Engaging Kids, Schools and Communities: Re-introducing Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF and TeachUNICEF to Boston” concentrated on two specific U.S. Fund for UNICEF programs: our educator resources known as TeachUNICEF and our annual Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign. As the Boston Global Citizenship Fellow, I was excited to plan an event focused on global education and the engagement of young people through service opportunities. The event met and exceeded my expectations as it was truly a community event, with representation from Boston-area parents, teachers, non-profit organizations, students, and religious leaders, all of whom were excited to learn how different community groups were active in educating, advocating and fundraising on behalf of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF.
