About the Campaign

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF began in 1950 as a way for kids to help kids in need of more than candy. Since then, children have gone door-to-door with their UNICEF collection boxes on Halloween, calling out "Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF!" They have raised more than $175 million for the U.S. Fund for UNICEF over the past 65 years.


Founded in 1946, UNICEF has always put children first, helping to save more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization. UNICEF cares about making the world better for kids. That’s why, when you donate to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, we make sure that 90.2 cents of every dollar spent goes directly to help children.
