U.S. Fund for UNICEF and BuyCostumes.com give back to Houston Students

Houston was selected as one of ten stops during BuyCostume.com's nationwide "Orange Tour" during the months of September and October. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF then nominated Lakeland Elementary to be the local recipient of BuyCostume.com's Halloween giveaway to thank the school for participating in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. In 2012, Lakeland Elementary students raised over $3,500 for Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF in their local community. 

Young Professionals Step Up with UNICEF's Next Generation in Atlanta

In September, a group of thirty young professionals gathered at the Luminary, a new restaurant in Atlanta’s trendy Krog Street Market. The event wasn’t a typical after-work social gathering. Participants showed up to learn how to take action with UNICEF’s Next Generation, a diverse group of young leaders in their 20s and 30s who share a commitment to UNICEF’s future and a belief that all children have the chance to live a safe and healthy childhood. Across the country, Next Generation members are hosting events, educating their communities, and raising funds for UNICEF’s lifesaving work.
