We Trick or Treat for UNICEF Do YOU?

We Trick or Treat for UNICEF Do YOU?

This past week our family was invited to participate in an event highlighting  Trick or Treat for UNICEF with  Ambassador  and  Disney Channel series star Laura Marano from the show Austin and Ally.  Since #unicefmamarazzi we have told everyone we Trick or Treat for UNICEF  Do YOU? Thanks to The Moms who invited us to a #unicefmamarazzi at Dylan’s Candy Bar in New York City.

Everything we needed to get started on our UNICEF Trick or Treat boxes

As A child I remember carrying the little cardboard box while trick or treating. This year our family will have a cardboard box that we decorated at #unicefmamarazzi while we munched on delicious sweets provided by Dylan’s Candy Bar.

UNICEF The United Nations Children’s Fund(UNICEF) works in more than 190 countries and territories to save and improve children’s lives, providing health care and immunizations, clean water and sanitation, nutrition, education, emergency relief, and more. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF supports UNICEF’s work through fundraising, advocacy, and education in the United States. Together, we are working toward the day when ZERO children die from preventable and every child has a safe and healthy childhood.

 

We try to teach our son that he is very fortunate and that the little things he takes for granted such as  clean drinking water, clothes to wear and even soccer, footballs and baseballs many children do not. A donation as little as $5.00 can provide children with sports equipment , or when added up those donations could provide necessary vaccines so that Zero children die from preventable diseases.

Laura Marano a young woman wise beyond her years. Taught the boys how important giving is!

Although our children participated to learn how to give back we were given a Unicef Tric or Treat tote that is available for purchase at HSN.com loaded with and Ikea soft toy for education and Caryl Stern’s book “I believe in ZERO: Learning from the World’s Children which is also available for purchase at shop.unicefusa.org . All of these partners will donate a percentage or all of the royalties to UNICEF.

While you and your children are out trick or treating wether you have a box or not Trick or Treat for UNICEF, WE DO!

Want to teach your children more about UNICEF, show them the video of Laura Marano below.. and they will want to collect as well.
