Welcome to Champions for Children
Serving as the U.S. support for the program, flight attendants volunteer while at work to collect foreign and domestic currency contributions from American Airlines customers on all international flights and U.S. flights to and from Hawaii.
Champions for Children are supported by Champions Advisory Council (CAC): selected American Airlines flight attendants who serve as a liaison between the Change for Good team, flight attendants, regional base representatives and prospective members.
Other Ways to Support Change for Good
You don't have to be an American Airlines flight attendant to support Change for Good. All American Airlines team members get involved by:
- donating to UNICEF Change for Good on American Airlines and inviting your friends and family to make contributions too
- setting up recurring donations through Jetnet
- email email@example.com to learn how to donate foreign currency or deposit in UNICEF donation boxes

Champions for Children in Action
For over 25 years, American Airlines has supported UNICEF’s emergency response work including COVID-19 in Latin America, Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas, Ebola in West Africa, and the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.
UNICEF program visits
For over a decade, Champions for Children have made visits to UNICEF programs that they have supported. Through these visits, they see firsthand the impact that their volunteering has on children and families around the world.
Every year, American Airlines and UNICEF USA recognize four outstanding Champions for Children with the “Champions of the Year” award. Nominated by their peers, these Champions are selected for their passion, leadership and dedication to children around the world.
Throughout the year, Champions for Children and American Airlines headquarters staff attend nationwide and virtual UNICEF events, from galas, to workshops, summits and webinars.
Advocacy and awareness
Every year on November 20, American Airlines celebrates World Children’s Day with UNICEF – a day to promote children’s rights worldwide. Past awareness initiatives included an advocacy pop-up at the Change for Good base, specialized collection PA’s and Champion for Children spotlights across American Airlines social media platforms.
