Partner since: 1994
American Airlines has been a UNICEF supporter since 1994 through Change for Good®, a global partnership between UNICEF and the international airline industry which has raised over $116 million since it launched in 1987.
Change for Good®
UNICEF's Change for Good® program converts passengers' U.S. and foreign currency into lifesaving services for the world's most vulnerable children.
At American Airlines, "Champions for Children" employees volunteer to dedicate a portion of their time during their working hours to collect contributions of foreign and domestic currency from American's customers. Flight Attendants on select international flights, Admirals Club Representatives worldwide, and other volunteers on the ground company-wide can all volunteer to participate. Champions for Children have raised over $8.6 million through the Change for Good program on American Airlines since the program began.
