The tradition of ‘Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF’ began in 1950 in the United
States, when Philadelphia schoolchildren first went door-to-door at Halloween
collecting money in decorated milk cartons to help their global peers.

They raised a grand total of $17, kicking off a campaign that has since
brought in millions of dollars each year to help UNICEF provide medicine, better
nutrition, safe water, education, emergency relief and other support to children
in more than 150 countries.

 
Current Projects
With The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. Neonatal tetanus kills one baby every nine minutes—nearly 60,000 newborn children every year. A significant number of women also die due to maternal tetanus. The effects of the disease are excruciating—tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch.
