Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF
For more than 60 years, children and their families have raised over $164 million through Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. It started in Philadelphia, when Mary Emma Allison and her kids followed a parade of children to a department store booth where collections were being taken for UNICEF’s powdered milk program. Moved by the cause, the Allison family urged kids everywhere to collect coins on Halloween and donate them to UNICEF. The tradition continues today as America’s kids help kids the world over.

Giving is twice as nice with gifts that give back.

Mexican Families Master Ceramic-making
Over centuries, the Nahuatl people of the State of Guerrero, Mexico have mastered the production of clay and terracotta objects. They learned glazing from the Spanish and decorative techniques from the Majolica and Talavera. Today, an extended community helps make these handcrafted ornaments. Creating and selling them brings more money into the Nahuatl community, strengthens family bonds and helps maintain cultural identity.

After the earthquake destroyed some 5,000 schools, UNICEF helped create learning centers and provided educational materials so 720,000 children could resume their lessons.

Believe in Zero
Every year, eight million children don’t reach their fifth birthday — that’s 22,000 children each day. Worse — they are dying of preventable causes and treatable diseases. This is simply unacceptable. UNICEF is doing whatever it takes to reach a day when the number of children dying needlessly is not 22,000 — it is zero. But, UNICEF needs your support to succeed. To help UNICEF save more young lives, purchase cards and gifts today, and visit www.unicefusa.org to learn more about reaching zero.
