So here’s a great way to bring a little added meaning to Halloween.
Each year UNICEF raises funds through their “Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF” campaign. Kids are given little collection boxes that they can take door-to-door with them to collect change for kids in need. After it’s all said and done, you can dump the change in your local COINSTAR machine and the money will automatically be sent to UNICEF.
Don’t worry about getting the boxes in time for Friday’s festivities. You can download and print out this canister wrapper and make your own.
We talked it over with our five-year-old last night and he was really eager to help other kids by doing this! What a great way to reinforce the value of giving to others in your youngster!
