In December 2006, the “Champions for Children” volunteer program for UNICEF’s Change for Good program on American Airlines was born. Since then, Champions have collected more than $10 million to help UNICEF save and improve children’s lives. Every time you collect on flights or at Admirals Club lounges, you are making a difference in the life of a child. Below you can read about the tangible impact the notes and coins you have collected are making in the lives of children around the world.

Congrats Champions!

2014 was another great year. You collected more than $958,000 from generous customers through UNICEF’s Change for Good program on American Airlines!

Since the Champions for Children program was re-launched eight years ago in December 2006, an average of more than $1 million per year has been raised thanks to your unwavering efforts! Congratulations! This is an incredible achievement that would not have been accomplished without your ongoing dedication and commitment. On behalf of UNICEF and the many children you are helping, THANK YOU.
