Activities

UNICEF E-Alert!
U.S. Fund for UNICEF ALERT! is a program of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF aimed at keeping people informed about critical issues affecting children throughout the world. Members of U.S. Fund for UNICEF ALERT! receive e-mail messages every month or two letting them know about the state of the world's children.

Voices of Youth!
UNICEFís special Voices of Youth web site is a place where children, teachers, and parents can meet to discuss how the world can become a place where every child can live in peace, have decent shelter, be healthy and well-nourished, have clean water, play, go to school, and be protected from violence, abuse and exploitation.

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF!
The U.S. Fund for UNICEF is celebrating our 51st year of teaching American school children about their peers around the world and empowering them to make a difference through our "Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF" program. The "Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF" program educates children about their role as global citizens and enables them to make a difference in the lives of children in developing countries. Each year, we offer two sets of free educational kits: one set written for children in grades K-6, the other for those in grades 7-12.

Volunteer!
There are many ways you can help to save children ís lives and build their futures - whether you choose to ěTrick-or-Treat for UNICEF", buy UNICEF greeting cards, participate in Advocacy Alerts, write letters to Congress, support our chapter offices, speak about UNICEFís work to civic organizations, or become a U.S. Fund for UNICEF donor, you can make a difference in the lives of children in need. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF volunteer network is comprised of teachers, students, college groups, religious organizations, service groups, corporate partners, media, and community leaders across the United States.
