We were thrilled to have over 1 million students Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF this year, and we have loved seeing all of the videos and pictures of kids being “scary good” this Halloween. Thank you, a million times over, for joining us in this original Kids Helping Kids initiative.
Now, we have one more final treat to share!
If your elementary school or class participated in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF this year, and you submit your collections by Wednesday, November 22, your school will automatically be entered for a chance to win a UNICEF Kid Power Classroom Kit!
We’re excited to introduce our original Kids Helping Kids initiative to our newest program, UNICEF Kid Power, which allows students to save lives just by getting active!
UNICEF Kid Power inspires students to be global citizens while getting active and learning about the world around them.
“My favorite is in the very beginning when one of my students, a young man who doesn’t usually participate in class activities and struggles with his grades, asked to clarify why we were using the bands.
He said, ‘So, just by exercising, and I’m good at that, I can SAVE people’s lives?’
His eyes were watering and so were mine when I said a resounding, ‘Yes!’
~ Teacher from Julian, CA
What a joy it was seeing so many Kids Helping Kids this Halloween season! Students from every state chose to #BeScaryGood and went trick-or-treating for UNICEF USA to help raise much needed emergency funds for those recently affected by disasters. For all who joined us, THANK YOU! Please be sure to send in your donations to us by November 20 to be eligible for a special giveaway! Check your inboxes for details. 🎃
