UNICEF is a global humanitarian organization focused on providing access to clean water, health care, school supplies, and other essential resources for children worldwide, especially those in disaster-stricken areas such as Lebanon, Yemen, and East Africa. UNICEF Iowa is collaborating with Iowa City West UNICEF to host a Halloween fundraiser involving the local Iowa City community. The Halloween fundraiser will be a virtual costume contest that will occur during the last week of October, from the 26th to the 31st.
Vote for your favorite costume on UNICEFIowa's Facebook page by attaching the contestant's name to your donation. Once Halloween is over, prizes will be given to the contestants that have the most money! Prizes will include gift cards and products from local Iowa City businesses that were generously donated. The money raised from this contest will be sent to UNICEF USA to help aid underprivileged children in developing countries. We encourage you to participate by submitting entries and donating! Together, we are working towards the day when no child dies from preventable causes, and when every child has a safe and healthy life.
