Following in the footsteps of generations of children before them, thousands of kids will go door-to-door this Halloween to Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF – helping raise millions of dollars for children in need.
The latest news on child mortality couldn’t have happened without your help. UNICEF recently reported an amazing 40% drop in the mortality rate of children under five since 1990 – from 12 million children dying each year to 7 million. We believe that number should be ZERO – and with your help we know it can be.
We also applaud UNICEF and the IKEA Foundation for a 10-year partnership that has improved the lives of more than 74 million children in India.
And in Niger, in the wake of catastrophic floods, UNICEF is responding to a growing cholera epidemic threatening already-vulnerable children.
On behalf of children around the world – thank you for supporting UNICEF.

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF
For generations, kids have toted UNICEF’s iconic collection boxes from door-to-door on Halloween calling out “Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF!” The annual tradition of kids helping kids by collecting donations, big and small, has raised more than $167 million since 1950 to help children in need around the world.
This year UNICEF’s Create-a-Character contest lets trick-or-treaters design their own collection box. Glitter, feathers, stickers – you name it! Plus, three participants will have their design featured on limited-edition collection boxes next Halloween.
And whether you are young or just young at heart, you can share in this inspiring tradition by setting up your own Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF online fundraising page.
