Event: Trick or Treat for Unicef

Halloween is almost here, and we are still wondering what costume we'll come up with buy for Allie. Last year, I created a no-sew tutu for her to match her little pink fairy wings and wand for trick-or-treat.

I heard that Unicef just launched this Trick-or-Treat for Unicef Superheroes at The Mega Atrium at SM Megamall a couple of Saturdays ago.

It is a 60-year old Unicef tradition that started in the United States, and now it's in the Philippines. My daughter and I were not able to go, though, because we were not in town that day. I was so bummed that we were not able to because Allie would have had so much fun seeing kids enjoying the party complete with fun games, face painting, and there were even superheroes present.

Looks like everyone had so much fun! Kids and parents were able to get their free TOT4UNICEF kits too, which will help raise money for disadvantaged children in the Philippines and worldwide. But don't fret. You can still go to Megamall, and get your own free kits at the Unicef booth located at Building A near Toy Kingdom until the 27th.

Below are kids Lizzy, Sophie, and dad Gino. Lizzy and Sophie joined the activities during that day and signed up for Trick-or-Treat kits. They got special collection boxes, IDs and t-shirts to let people know that they are official donation collectors for Unicef.

Tomoo Hozumi, UNICEF Country Representative, said, “With their energy and enthusiasm, Trick-or-Treaters for this campaign can collect donations that will contribute to better health, nutrition, water and sanitation and protection of other children. It is an example of Kids Helping Kids as it has been practiced since the Trick-or-Treat campaign was started in the United States more than 60 years ago."

So come, join me, and let's go get our kits now!
