A couple of months ago, orange boxes were popping up all over Vista del Lago, but for what?

Every year starting around Halloween, UNICEF begins its Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF project, which raises funds to save children’s lives in over 190 countries by means of medical help, food and water.

This all began in 1950, when a family in Pennsylvania began collecting change for children vulnerable after World War II. Over time, this movement evolved, gaining publicity through television throughout the mid-90s. In 2005, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF even raised a record-breaking $18.25 million. This project is currently supported by schools all over the country.

Last year, Key Club collected $487.54 for UNICEF. This year, Vista’s new UNICEF club is in charge of handling the donations. Speech/Debate teacher and UNICEF club adviser Mrs. Losch said, “We want to see if we could up it a little from last year.”

This year, the goal was $600. “If 60 classrooms donated $10 each, we would have $600,” said Losch.

The grand total from all the donations this year was $423.58, which is less than the anticipated goal. Nonetheless, the money will still go to a good cause to help children in need around the world. In addition, Losch hopes some the money will go to the typhoon Haiyan relief effort.

Good work to everyone who donated.
