Natural disasters, refugee crises, conflict and famine put more and more young lives in jeopardy every day. Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF donations help UNICEF save and protect the world's most vulnerable children.
Halloween fundraising for UNICEF was in full swing this week in schools and neighborhoods and communities across the country. Here's a look at some of the reports coming in on social media. #ToT4UNICEF
Many enthusiastic participants posted early to rally support:
Today, Bash gets to turn in his Trick or Treat for UNICEF box to see how much his class raised. He was so excited that the “big kids” from school came to his class to show them how to set up the box, gave them detailed instructions on what to do, and shared how they could help other kids. Proud mom moment: when Bash was the one who remembered to bring the box out and was telling other kids and parents at the Halloween parade! -- . . . #happyhalloween #tot4unicef #nyckids #kidshalloween #nycmom #nycmomblogger #mombloggers #nychalloween #nyckids #momblogger #motherhoodjourney #parenthood_moments #nycmoms #honestmotherhood #uniteinmotherhood #momlife #motherhoodandme #joyfulmamas #motherhoodinspired #ourcandidlife #our_everyday_moments #kidsofinstagram #childhoodunplugged #letthembelittle #magicofchildhood #pixel_kids #momtogs #momswithcameras #cameramama #documentyourdays

High-schoolers Kendra Triggs and Zack Anderson — pictured with a young helper — are volunteers with the organization Liberty Pals of North Liberty, Iowa. They raised more than $60 for UNICEF in less than an hour over the weekend.
It all started in the late 1940s, with a good idea and a chance encounter. Seven decades later, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is still inspiring kids to discover their ability to help children like themselves around the world.
Every dollar raised can make a difference in a kid's life. $2 pays for 10 bars of soap, to help kids stay clean and healthy. $5 pays for a UNICEF backpack for a child to take to school. $30 protects 100 kids from measles.
And just 50 cents covers a packet of Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF) to help a malnourished child recover.
