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 $17 million to help UNICEF save and improve children’s lives. Every time you collect on flights or at Admirals Club lounges, 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!

2019 was another great year. You collected more than $1.2M from generous customers through UNICEF’s Change for Good program on American Airlines!

This is an incredible achievement that would not have been accomplished without your ongoing dedication and commitment. On behalf of UNICEF and the many children you are helping, THANK YOU.

2019 collections are helping UNICEF save and improve children’s lives. More specifically:

  • $150,288.47 will be supporting UNICEF’s emergency relief efforts in the Bahamas as a result of Hurricane Dorian; 
  • $307,232.16 will be helping children who are the most vulnerable in the hardest to reach places across the world. 
  • $305,923 will be helping refugee children in the Chihuahua and Sonora states in the northern region of Mexico receive care. This program was selected by the Champions as part of the annual voting contest; 
  • $461,566.45 will be supporting UNICEF’s COVID-19 relief work in Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica and Guatemala. You can learn more about this here
