After actress and music artist, Zendaya, this year’s Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF Spokesperson, promoted UNICEF on Good Day New York yesterday, October 27th, this year’s Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF Spokesperson, made a surprise visit to P.S. 163 Alfred E. Smith Elementary in New York City earlier today, October 28th.

Arriving at the elementary school, an unsuspecting class received a shock as she made her way into the room. Zendaya spent one-on-one time with the kids as she helped them decorate their very own Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF boxes to take home.  Later on, hundreds of students gathered for a surprise assembly led by the star herself. The kids were able to learn more about the campaign, what it means to her and how they could also help save the lives of other children around the world.  Ten lucky students had the chance to participate in a Q&A session at the end of the assembly. Questions ranged from what costumes Zendaya wore as a kid to where donations specifically go and of course, whether or not she would be able to give everyone a hug.

This year, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF has been made even easier through the option of fundraising digitally via Crowdrise.  A personal page can be created in just a few simple steps for those who may not be able to go door-to-door, allowing friends and family members to donate with the click of a button.

Although orders for collection boxes are closed at this time, it is still possible for participants interested in going door-to-door to download a printable label and create their own box.  Donations collected through the campaign provide medicine, nutrition, clean water, emergency relief and education to children all over the globe.  No contribution is too small – with just $1, UNICEF can provide a child with clean drinking water for 40 days.  Trick-or-treaters all over America have raised more than $170 million for the U.S. Fund for UNICEF since 1950.
