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 Clubs, 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!
