Did you ever go door-to-door with those orange UNICEF boxes or maybe had a child or two come to your door with one? UNICEF, who raises money to help kids get the health care, clean water and education opportunities they deserve, are taking their efforts virtual.
Kids can now collect money through UNICEF’s interactive web page which includes costumed characters and a virtual costume party.
The Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF Costume Party is a web app that lets you create digital costumes and share them over your social media sites. For a $5 to $10 donation, you can access more digital costumes and photo effects.
Heidi Klum is hosting. Just visit http://youth.unicefusa.org/ and join the party.
UNICEF is also adding QR codes to their well-known orange boxes. Just scan the code with your smartphone to donate or text TOT to “UNICEF” (864233).
Do you think by going virtual UNICEF will see more donations coming in? I think it definitely makes it easier for us all to give.
