WHAT IS UNICEF? - The United Nations Children's Fund was created on December 11 in 1946 to help kids in Europe. These children were starving and sick after World War II ended. UNICEF is still helping kids today. It works in over 150 countries, providing chidlren with access to safe drinking water, education and more.

In 1950, Pennsylvania schoolchildren began Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. On Halloween, they went door-to-door collecting coins for UNICEF in decorated mild cartons. By fundraising, these children started a Kids Helping Kids tradition. Today, millions of children take part in Halloween fundraising for UNICEF in creative ways.

Did you know? One billion children live in poverty and they often do not have enough food to eat or clean water to drink. UNICEF works to make sure children's basic needs are met. That way, they can grown into healthy adults. UNICEF buys more immunizations and vaccines than any organization in the world.

Your Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF donations can buy: 7 cents - one packet of special powder that, when mixed with water, can save a child from deadly dehydration; $1 - 24 protein biscuits for a starving child; $2 - 1 liter of therapeutic milk (special milk with extra vitamins and nutrients); $3 - large fleece blanket; $6 - three 10-liter water containers for carrying and storing pure, clean water; $17 - pays for vaccines to keep a kid safe from six killer diseases; $18.57 - provides three bed nets to protect families against mosquitoes that carry deadly malaria; $26.95 buys a lifesaving first aid kit; and $120 - a box of 10,000 tablets that purify water for kids to drink.

The UMC SS staff would like to thank the Peer Helpers for their participation in the 2012 collection effort and thank all those who so generously donated.
