It’s finally here: the week of Halloween! What kinds of treats—and tricks—have you and your club planned for Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF? We want to know!
Take pictures of your club’s fundraising projects and upload them to Instagram
. Use the hashtags #TOT4UNICEF or #KeyClub. Have a really awesome project that you did this year? Tell us all about it. Email the name and details of your event to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don’t have any plans yet? That’s OK! Here are three simple, last-minute ideas:
1. Host a pumpkin smash. After Halloween, most families no longer want their pumpkins and Jack-o’-lanterns. Ask members of your community if they would like to donate their old pumpkins. Charge students a fee to smash the pumpkins. Be careful, though: It can get messy!
2. Sell baked goods. Whip up some hauntingly good treats—such as graveyard cupcakes or bat-shaped cookies—to sell during lunch. Don’t have time to bake? Make it simple by selling suckers.
3. Guess the number of candy corn pieces. Fill up a large jar with pieces of candy corn. Ask participants to pay US$1 for each guess. Whoever comes closest gets a spooky prize package.
Once you’ve collected all of your donations, send a check or money order (made payable to the Kiwanis International Foundation) and your completed gift form to:
The Eliminate Project: Campaign Office
Kiwanis International Foundation

Be sure to write your club name or club number on the memo line of the check.
