Zendaya Surprises Local New York City School To Promote UNICEF — See The Photos!

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.

Zendaya Coleman Is The Spokesperson For Iconic Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF Campaign

Actress, platinum recording artist and author Zendaya, this year’s Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF spokesperson, is asking kids in the U.S. to make a difference in the lives of other kids by raising funds for UNICEF’s lifesaving programs. Zendaya will be appearing as a “Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF superhero” in print, online, and broadcast public service announcements to encourage participation in the 64-year-old American tradition. Donations collected through Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF provide medicine, nutrition, clean water, emergency relief and education to children around the world.

In addition to going door-to-door with traditional orange boxes to collect coins for UNICEF, for the first time kids and parents can now set up individual fundraising pages on Crowdrise for their friends and family members to donate. Also new this year, participants can turn their Halloween party into a Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF fundraiser by setting up a donation page and including a link to it in their party invitation. To get started, visit www.trickortreatforunicef.org.

“I loved Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF when I was younger because it was such an empowering experience to be able to make a difference. Kids need more than candy; they need basics like medicine, nutrition and clean drinking water, and millions of them wouldn’t have these things without UNICEF,” said Zendaya, 18-year-old star and producer of Disney Channel series KC Undercover airing this winter, and former contestant on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. “I’m really excited to celebrate Halloween this year by inspiring a new generation of kids to be Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF superheroes that help save other kids’ lives.”

The campaign relies not only on children and parents, but also on educators to teach their students the value of helping kids in need. This year K-8 teachers can participate through the 2nd annual Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF School Challenge. The competition will provide 15 grand prize winning teachers with $1,000 technology grants. All entrants will be asked to describe how they will teach their students about issues facing children globally and the importance of giving back. To be eligible to win, teachers must submit Trick-or-Treat donations by Dec. 1, 2014. To enter the competition, visit www.trickortreatforunicef.org.

Additionally, this year’s Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF Teachers’ Guides can be used as a resource for educators to help provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to make an impact through the campaign. Using readings, photos, videos, music, maps, and games, they introduce students to UNICEF’s work, child rights, and a variety of issues affecting the health and well-being of children around the world.

The U.S. Fund for UNICEF is grateful for the support of National Sponsors HSN, Inc. and Key Club International, National Media Sponsor Media Vest, Promotional Supporter Coinstar, Inc. and Proud Supporter BuySeasons, Inc.
