The Fun is in Fundraising This Halloween


With brightly lit jack-o-lanterns, fright- ening costumes and treats, Halloween is a much anticipated time of the year for many. But while kids are making the rounds, gathering goodies from neigh- bors and friends, there is much they can do, individually or with schoolmates, to give back to their community during this exciting holiday.


Ghoulish Giving at School This Halloween season, talk to your kids about helping their peers around the world by supporting the Trick-or- Treat for UNICEF campaign. The organi- zation is launching its first nationwide “Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF School Chal- lenge,” designed to help elementary school educators teaching children about the needs of their peers in other countries. Winners will get the opportu- nity to travel abroad to see programs for children in action.


“Teachers play an essential role in supporting UNICEF’s work each year through the Trick-or-Treat campaign,” said Caryl Stern, president and CEO of


48 Connect And Grow With Women In Our Community


the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. “This year, the campaign’s partners also include HSN, Inc., Key Club International, American Air- lines and Coinstar. We want to recognize teachers and our partners for their tre- mendous efforts in helping to positively impact children’s lives around the world.” Beyond the classroom, there are many ways for kids to get involved. Here are some other ideas for children to help out with causes important to them:


• Hold a Seriously Spooky Bake Sale Encourage your kids to whip up some creepy treats for a bake sale to benefit lo- cal charity. Make it a monstrously fun time by inviting school buds together to bake Halloween-themed delights for the sale.


• Collect Donations While Trick or Treating Teach kids to give back this Hallow- een through the original Kids Helping Kids campaign. While going house-to- house, invite your kids to Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. The campaign raises mon- ey to provide medicine, nutrition, clean water, education and more to children
