This Halloween, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF celebrates its 65th year of Kids Helping Kids. Since 1950, Trick-or-Treaters across generations have raised more than $170 million; 1 in 10 Americans has joined the campaign to help kids who need more than candy!
UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund, has always put children first since its founding in 1946. UNICEF has helped save more children's lives than any other humanitarian organization — and when American children Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF at Halloween, they have the power to be real superheroes and save lives, too.
It's scary how little it takes to do a lot of good through Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF: just $1 can provide a child 40 days of clean water. So the small change collected when kids go to door to door on Halloween can mean big change for children in need. UNICEF responds to over 200 emergencies a year — including providing aid to children orphaned by Ebola in West Africa — and Trick-or-Treat donations help make these lifesaving missions possible. Join us on Halloween to put children first. By saving UNICEF as your favorite cause on eBay, you can donate as little as $1 whenever you buy or sell. Get started here!
