Chris' Corner: Pay it Forward with UNICEF Canada

Pay it Forward with UNICEF Canada

An old High School Friend had "liked" a UNICEF Canada link on Facebook, and I saw a picture of a UNICEF box that I carried around on Halloween when I was in elementary school many moons ago...

It struck a chord in me, and I clicked on the link and saw that the old UNICEF boxes have been replaced by their "new", to me, Virtual Campaign.

National UNICEF Day from UNICEF Canada on Vimeo.


I clicked on the link to the UNICEF Canada Home Page, investigated a little, and thought this would be a venture worthy of my support.

There are ideas on how to help make a difference by spreading the word, involving children, or by giving some great fundraising ideas in these links.

I am trying to Pay it Forward by Spreading the word and by holding a Halloween Lunch Break at the Office.  Are you "IN"?

If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem!

Thanks for sharing this Chris. UNICEF supports so many worthwhile causes for children throughout the world. It is an organization worthy of our support.

Malcolm, it is hard these days to know what charities actually funnel the money raised to the intended, but I guess the picture of those UNICEF Halloween boxes tugges at my heartstrings.  I am sure that you, too, carried a box along with your loot bag in days gone by.

Hi Chris,

Unicef, continues to set the standard for its ability to get results in so many situations where others walk away from the ongoing problems, certainly an organization to support as much as possible.

UNICEF is definitely a worthy cause Chris and continues to find ways to help so many people world-wide!

Wanda, Halloween used to be UNICEF's big campaign day in Canada

Al and Peggy, as a kid I carried around those boxes many years, and I can remember as an adult having a separate bowl of coins for kids with UNICEF boxes also...

I guess they have stepped into the 21st century
