Encourage Kids to Trick-or-Treat

Sep 28, 2015 05:22AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Lifestyle



As kids set out with friends and neighbors on a quest for sweet treats and goodwill this Halloween, they can bring along a new gang – “The Peanuts Movie” gang, that is. This year, the iconic Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign will celebrate its 65th anniversary by joining forces with another American favorite, Peanuts, which is also turning 65 this year.

“The Peanuts Movie” characters will encourage children to support Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF this Halloween by going door-to-door to collect donations for UNICEF’s lifesaving programs while they celebrate the spooky season.

Since 1950, American kids who Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF have raised more than $175 million for UNICEF to provide children around the world with medicine, nutrition, clean water, emergency relief and education.

Tools for schools
In addition to children’s efforts to raise funds, teachers of grade K-12 students can participate in the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF School Challenge. This fall, teachers can enter a short essay (200-500 words) contest about encouraging global citizenship in the classroom and community. The top 15 entrants will receive $500 worth of Scholastic books. Entries must be submitted at trickortreatforunicef.org by Dec. 1, 2015 to be considered; teachers can also access lesson plans and other resources to engage their students on the website.

Other ways to participate
Families can participate in this year’s campaign through partners and supporters, including HSNi Cares, Key Club International, Claire’s and American Airlines.

HSNi Cares will raise funds to support UNICEF through all eight HSNi brands: Ballard Designs, Chasing Fireflies, Frontgate, Garnet Hill, Grandin Road, HSN, Improvements and TravelSmith. Throughout August and September, customers can make a donation online or over the phone at any HSNi brand. From Aug. 14 to Sept. 30, HSN will match all customer donations made on the HSN credit card up to $150,000. Exclusively on Chasing-Fireflies.com, customers can purchase one-of-a-kind “I Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF” tote bags. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF will receive a 30 percent donation from the purchase price of each bag through Oct. 31.

Claire’s will support Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF through retail stores nationwide and on Claires.com. From Sept. 24 through Oct. 31, customers can pick up a Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF box in Claire’s stores nationwide, which they can use to decorate and collect funds to support UNICEF. In addition, Claire’s will sell a Halloween Tote, donating 50 percent of the purchase price to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. The brand will also host an Instagram sweepstake (#clairesunicefsweepstakes) and give prizes for the most creative boxes.
