Trick or raise money for children in developing countries

The Act Global class and Dumbledore’s Army club are participating in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF.

UNICEF was created in 1946 as the “United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund” to help children after World War II. UNICEF was expanded to children in need in the developing world and is now known as the United Nations Children’s Fund.

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is an effort to try to raise money to help kids in need. According to their website, “Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF funds help save children’s lives in over 190 countries and territories through immunization, education, health care, nutrition, clean water and sanitation.”

Mrs. Kajtaniak, the leader of the Act Global class, said that students wanted to help raise money for UNICEF, and they are encouraging other people to help raise money.

Trick-or-Treaters took a small, orange, cardboard box with a slit in the top, giving the box the capabilities of receiving and storing money. Participators took the box and asked the candy-givers if they also wanted to donate money, along with the candy for themselves.

Other people can donate either by mail, by phone, or at a coinstar machine.
