Going Trick-or-Treating on Wednesday? Bring Your DIY UNICEF Box to Raise Money for the Cause

Remember those little orange boxes you could take trick-or-treating to raise money for UNICEF? They’re back — and you can even make one by yourself before you go collecting candy on Wednesday night.

The Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign kicked off in 1950 and has raised nearly $ 177 million to help the organization provide children with healthcare, nutrition, safe water, emergency relief and educational services.

While some might not see the difference some spare change can make, it’s huge: 50 cents provides one packet of ready-to-use therapeutic food to help a malnourished child, $ 2 provides 10 bars of soap and $ 5 provides one UNICEF backpack for a child to use at school.

Can covers are available to download at TrickorTreatforUNICEF.org, along with more information on this year’s #BeScaryGood campaign, featuring Slappy from the movie Goosebumps 2. Those who have their hands full with chocolate but still want to help can contribute at unicef.org. It’ll feel just as good as that post-holiday sugar high.

Primark Seals Deal With Unicef to Help Cambodian Children

CHILDREN’S HOUR: Primark and Unicef have inked a three-year partnership aimed at contributing to the latter’s work in education and emergency response for vulnerable children.
Primark confirmed it has committed $ 4.5 million to fund an education program enabling vulnerable children to attend and remain in school in Cambodia.
Planned activities include targeted support for children from minority language groups, girls, and children with disabilities; investment in school sanitation facilities; and training for teachers in positive discipline approaches.
Primark has committed a further $ 1.5 million to Unicef’s worldwide emergency response operations. In 2017, the aid organization responded to 337 humanitarian situations in 102 countries. In most humanitarian crises, children are most at risk, with women and children comprising 60 to 80 percent of the affected population.
“Unicef is the world’s largest humanitarian organization for children with operations in more than 190 countries,” said Unicef Ireland’s executive director, Peter Power.
He said the organization relies significantly on the private sector “to help fund our life-saving and life-changing operations for children and we are pleased to welcome Primark’s generous contribution to this work.”
Primark’s chief executive officer, Paul Marchant, said, “As an international brand we are excited to be collaborating with a global organization which shares our commitment to making

Moncler Launches Charity Project with UNICEF

WARM HEART: Moncler has partnered with UNICEF – the United Nations international children’s emergency fund, – to launch a charity project. Named “Warmly Moncler For UNICEF,” the initiative aims to provide clothes and survival kits to children and families in need who live in areas around the world with harsh winter weather conditions.
In particular, the outerwear specialist and the charity association – which operates in 192 countries, – will provide thermal blankets, hats, gloves, scarves, socks and shoes, in addition to fuel to warm up homes and schools. Clean water, food and medicines will be also included in the survival kits.
Previously, Moncler supported children in need by funding the Child Priority Foundation. For the occasion, the brand launched the “Moncler Toy” initiative, which combined art and fashion.
A quirky version of the brand’s iconic cartoonish duck that imparts washing instructions inside all of Moncler’s jackets was molded from glass resin with a three-dimensional effect. The statue was then handed over to British artist Stuart Semple, who manually reproduced a mountain scene onto the duck in black and white, and auctioned it off.
Established in Grenoble, France, in 1952, Moncler was acquired by Italian entrepreneur Remo Ruffini in 2003 and is publicly listed

Louis Vuitton, UNICEF Launch #Makeapromise Day

GOOD CAUSE: Louis Vuitton is to launch its first #makeapromise day on Jan. 12 in partnership with the United Nation’s Children’s Fund, or UNICEF, to raise funds for children in urgent need.
The initiative comes a year after the luxury brand embarked on the charitable project with an initial three-year global partnership with the UNICEF fund.
During this day, some 12,000 Louis Vuitton sales associates in 460 Louis Vuitton stores worldwide will pitch the partnership and promote the sales of the Silver Lockit jewelry items, with $ 200 from each sale of the $ 600 pendant and $ 500 bracelet donated to UNICEF. An offer will be made that day for those who purchase two Silver Lockits items in all Louis Vuitton stores and on louisvuitton.com.
The event will be held in tandem with a campaign where clients will be encouraged to come accompanied with someone close to make a “pinky promise” and to share their promise online with a hashtag #makeapromise. Vuitton staff is also inviting clients to make direct donations online throughout the year and especially during emergencies.
Since January 2016, the partnership has helped raise $ 2.5 million to help bring children life-saving humanitarian support in Syria and Nigeria.
“The idea of the #makeapromise campaign comes
