Although volunteers come in all ages, our registered grassroots volunteers (over 15,000 in number) are a bit older than the average Trick-or-Treater for UNICEF. We have heard that they remember Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF fondly, so we wanted to come up with ways that kids and adults of all ages can support UNICEF at Halloween.
We’re asking our volunteers to host a Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF Halloween Party, a great way to gather friends, family and colleagues to celebrate Halloween, learn more about UNICEF and raise funds for the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign.
We’re also asking folks to register their parties. Once registered, you will receive an email giving you access to downloadable invitations, stickers, a party planning guide and other resources. And if you are one of the first 100 to register your party, we’ll send you a Halloween Party Kit full of goodies! The kit includes a Halloween Party Guide, stickers, door hangers, our trademark orange collection boxes, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF branded cups and plates and door signs
We can always tell that summer is nearly over when the temperatures start falling, the sun sets a little earlier, and our summer interns wrap up their work and say goodbye. Tomorrow is the last day for our last intern in the Volunteer and Community Partnerships (VCP) Department. Pictured here are Ay-Nur, Josh, Anna and their supervisor, Rachael.

Today the interns made a presentation on the work that they have been doing this summer. The VCP Department supports our Online Volunteer Center, the UNICEF Campus Initiative, our relationship with Key Club and Circle K, and others. From working on the CNN Viewing Parties, to supporting Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF and the Tap Project, to developing resources for our Campus Clubs and answering volunteer inquires, and much, much more
The General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC) recently honored Caryl Stern, president and CEO of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, as one of four women of distinction at the Empowering Women Banquet, held during the 117th Annual GFWC International Convention in Chicago. Other honorees included Anne Burke, Illinois Supreme Court Justice and a founder of the Special Olympics; Elena Poptodorova, Ambassador of Bulgaria to the United States; and Jaclyn Smith, actress, entrepreneur, philanthropist and breast cancer survivor.
Stern thanked the gathering of over 650 GFWC members for their long-standing support of UNICEF and commitment to the empowerment of women. She pointed out that gender inequality creates a burden on both women and children, and therefore remains a high priority in UNICEF’s work.
At this year’s annual Key Club International Convention in Denver, Colorado, our four new ambassadors dressed up in Halloween costumes that mirrored the characters on the new Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF box.
Today I’m responding to some of the comments I received on my original child survival post (with thanks to all of you who commented). A number of commenters want to get involved and help. We always love to hear that. A few, like Shahidha, worry they don’t have a lot to give financially. The truth is, there are many ways to help besides money. We’d be lost without our volunteers.
