History of TOT

In 1950, Pennsylvania schoolchildren began Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. On Halloween, they went door-to-door collecting coins for UNICEF in decorated milk cartons. By fundraising, these children started a Kids Helping Kids tradition. Today, millions of children take part in Halloween fundraising for UNICEF in creative ways. In 2010 UNICEF celebrated the 60th anniversary of the Trick-or-Treat campaign, which over its history has raised $167 million dollars to help kids! Your club can order your Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF boxes today! Collect donations for UNICEF in your box by going trick-or-treating or by raising funds in your own unique way. The money you raise will help UNICEF provide clean water, nutrition, education and more to millions of kids in need around the world. Have great new ideas about Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF? You can create your own fundraising webpage and share on Facebook or Twitter or email friends and family to make donations and get the ball rolling! You can also be a leader with your smart phone and help change the world in the blink of an eye! Just text the word “TOT” to UNICEF (864233) to make a $10.00 donation to Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF.
