Every October, United Methodists have the opportunity to improve the lives of children around the world through a long-standing collaboration between the General Board of Church & Society (GBCS) and the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, the United Nation’s Children’s Fund. This collaboration, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, has helped UNICEF save more children’s lives than any other organization, according to Caryl Stern, U.S. Fund president.
Last year, United Methodists raised more than $154,000 for UNICEF. Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF empowers children to show the world that the rights of every child must be upheld and respected.
