Impact: UNICEF School Challenge

By Tonka Dobreva 10.29.2015 interact

For some kids, this Halloween wasn’t just about the costumes and the candy — it was about making an impact. The United Nation’s International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) launched its annual Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF initiative aimed at raising money and helping children in need around the world. The themed initiative started in 1950 as a way for kids to help kids, and since then has raised more than $175 million for the U.S. Fund for UNICEF.

And although Halloween is over, you can still get involved!


Enter the 2015 Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF School Challenge  and win books for your school! 

Here’s what to do:

  • Fundraise. Get creative and brainstorm ways to raise money in your classroom to help kids around the world.
  • Donate. Send in the donations you collected to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF by December 1, 2015.
  • Write. Answer the questions: “How do you encourage global citizenship in your class or community? Why is it important to you?” and submit your essay by December 1, 2015.
