UNICEF stands for the U.N. International Children’s Fund. The “E” used to be for “emergency,” but while it still appears in the alphabetical name, UNICEF is no longer an emergency program.


It operates every day, all year, feeding children who are hungry, helping people to feed their children better with local foods, and, in cooperation with the World Health Organization, fighting diseases that attack children.

Meet Ed Norton. He’s the man behind Crowdrise, a pioneer in raising money for charities online.

For the first time in its 64-year history, kids and parents can take their fundraising online by using Crowdrise and set up a Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF fundraising page to share with friends and family via email, or even as a part of a Halloween party invite/e-vite. How easy it that?

No, my head is quite empty,” answered the Woodman; “but once I had brains, and a heart also; so, having tried them both, I should much rather have a heart.” ― L. Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

Let’s all be like our galvanized friend.  

How about a little more treat than trick this year?
