Trick Or Treat 2013 for UNICEF

 UNICEF's Trick-or-Treat Year 2 Now Nationwide

Help change the world by trick-or-treating with UNICEF this Halloween. Register for FREE and get your Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF kits from any Toy Kingdom branch until October 31, 2013. A different kind of Trick or Treat to help the children of Zamboanga.

The Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF Superheroes campaign brings special meaning to Halloween by giving children an opportunity to learn the value of helping other children in need. Instead of asking for candies and treats, children can collect money in a special Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF box. This year's Trick-or-Treat focuses on children affected by the conflict in Zamboanga. The funds raised will help them go back to school, give them access to safe drinking water and sanitation facilities, and ensure their good health and nutritional status.

"UNICEF relies entirely on voluntary donations to fund its work for children in the Philippines and worldwide. With Toy Kingdom's support, we hope to raise more funds and awareness on how children can help other children in Zamboanga through Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. The situation in Zamboanga profoundly affected a large number of children so every contribution counts and everyone can do something to help," said UNICEF Philippines Country Representative Tomoo Hozumi.

The grand launch party held in the SM Megamall Event Center on October 5 featured fun games, superhero appearances and a special performance by UNICEF National Ambassador Gary Valenciano.

Dubbed as the original Kids Helping Kids® campaign, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is celebrated by many children and families around the world and has since raised more than US$167 million to help children in need globally. Launched in the Philippines last year, the program raised over PhP400,000 and distributed over 4,000 donation kits in malls and participating schools.

Register for your free Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF donation kits at all Toy Kingdom branches nationwide from October 1 to 31, 2013 or until supplies last. All donations can be turned over to any SM Bill Payment counter (SM Department Store, SM Supermarket, SM Hypermarket, and Savemore) nationwide. Children and families who turn in their donations before November 30, 2013 will receive a certificate of appreciation and surprise gift via mail!
