Most questions around this time of year likely center around what trick-or-treating plans are, what costume one is going to wear or what treats we are going to hand out. Not too long ago I posted about 9 treats for a fair trade, but what about those that do not have a choice at all? What about those who struggle daily for health care? What about those that struggle daily to eat at all? What if they were children.
They are children. Worldwide there are millions of children that go without food, school and health care on a daily basis. Let alone trick-or treating. I believe that it is human nature to naturally want to take care of someone else. Why not instill that when out kids our young? Why not show them they can have fun while they are doing it? Why not show them they are not too small to make a difference- halfway across the world.
This is the first year that I have heard about Trick or Treat for UNICEF. This year is the first year I will be taking my 2 year old to trick-or-treat for UNICEF. While we might only raise a few dollars, those few dollars can go a long way for another 2 year old in Ghana, Nepal or many other countries.
Today I am reaching out to you, to ask you to join me to trick-or-treat for UNICEF. Together we can make a few dollars a hundred, and then a thousand. The trick-or-treat for UNICEF has been in operation for 62 years and has raised $167 million for kids around the globe. All it takes is each of our kids, working together across the nation to continue the movement. Help your kids help other kids in a way they will never forget.
