UNICEF is a group that works in more than 190 countries and territories around the world to help kids. Some of the kids UNICEF helps don’t have enough food, clean water or medicine. Some of them don’t get to go to school. Some have lost their homes in natural disasters. UNICEF and myself believes that ZERO children should be in these kinds of situations.
An easy fundraising idea started in 1950 is Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. On Halloween, We can help these kids by trick-or-treating for donations in addition to candy. The donations collected are used by UNICEF to help children live healthy lives and have bright futures. This program has already raised more than $170 million!
