Trick-or-Treat For UNICEF!

Trick-or-Treat For UNICEF

Sweeten your trick-or-treating by giving back to a great cause.

Most of us are aware that Halloween is right around the corner, but some of us may not know that October 31st is more than just an occasion to wear a costume and to indulge in sweets.  It’s also an opportunity to join with others, including our children and to make a difference in the world.

Since 1950, kids have gone door to door on Halloween not just in pursuit of candy, but in an effort to help other children. Carrying UNICEF collection boxes in lieu of or in addition to their candy bags, our youth have raised over $175 million for the United States UNICEF fund over the years.

In order to help make this day extra meaningful, let’s participate and join this tradition. We can get involved by ordering your UNICEF collection box today! We can also print out resources for them to share with our friends and our children’s classmates to further spread the positive impact this Halloween.

What is UNICEF and what does it do?  Briefly, UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything they do. Together with their partners, they work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.

In all of its work, UNICEF takes a life-cycle based approach, recognizing the particular importance of early childhood development and adolescence. UNICEF programs focus on the most disadvantaged children, including those living in fragile contexts, those with disabilities, those who are affected by rapid urbanization and those affected by environmental degradation.

UNICEF was created with a distinct purpose in mind: to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path. They promote girls’ education – ensuring that they complete primary education as a minimum – because it benefits all children, both girls and boys.

Girls who are educated grow up to become better thinkers, better citizens, and better parents to their own children. They act so that all children are immunized against common childhood diseases, and are well nourished.

Let’s make our trick-or-treating extra sweet by supporting UNICEF on Halloween! The Maria Sanchez Show will be doing our part, too!
