UNICEF starts fundraiser


UNICEF at Baruch combined two college student passions — volunteering and free candy — by bringing the national “Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF” campaign to Baruch College’s campus. This is an organization-wide event that Baruch students can take part in all throughout October.

UNICEF at Baruch launched the trick-or-treat fundraiser on Oct. 5. The campaign is designed to give students and kids an opportunity to raise money throughout the Halloween season for underprivileged children.

To sign up, one had to ask for a trick-or-treat box. Little kids were encouraged to take a box with them while trick-or-treating. That way, instead of just taking candy, they could reach out to their community members for any change they could spare. They then send the boxes out to UNICEF, where the money will be utilized.

While many college students do not go trick-or-treating anymore, they can ask friends for change or younger siblings to bring the trick-or-treat coin box around on Halloween.

Helen Liu, vice president of the Baruch UNICEF chapter, commented on responsibilities college students have stating, “As college students, we should have an active role in helping [children from other countries].”

Last year, UNICEF at Baruch raised around $1,000 with the campaign, and according to Liu, its goals this year include hitting that $1,000 mark again.

Even if one did not receive a box to collect money on Oct. 5, it is still possible to get involved. On Oct. 18, UNICEF at Baruch will be hosting another event during club hours, and will be hosting the Allison family.

Liu explained that, “[The] Allison family founded the ‘Trick-or-Treat’ campaign, and later partnered with UNICEF to continue to fundraise.”

Baruch students can also pick up a box at any time inside of UNICEF’s club room. At the end of the month, on Oct. 24, UNICEF will be hosting a “Halloween Bash,” open to anyone to celebrate its fundraising efforts, collect boxes and continue to raise awareness.

UNICEF will be hosting several different events throughout the year, such as socials, documentary screenings and a career panel with officials from the United Nations.

Speaking about the opportunities UNCIEF provides, Liu stated, “A lot of us are focused on working with non-profits, and we’re connected to the national UNICEF, and make connections with the United Nations,” in order to gain experience in their prospective careers. “It really helps with making connections,” she said.

Liu emphasized, “Show up! As long as you’re involved, getting inducted is easy!"
