"For American children and parents, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF offers an impactful way to make a difference in the lives of vulnerable children." — Selena
UNICEF Ambassador Selena Gomez is back as the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF National Spokesperson for the third year in a row! Selena believes that everyone can make a difference and wants young people to make Halloween count this year by Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF to help children around the world.
Selena was appointed a UNICEF Ambassador in September 2009, becoming the youngest UNICEF Ambassador in the United States. On her first official field mission for UNICEF, Selena traveled to Ghana in West Africa where she witnessed the work UNICEF is doing to help get kids the things they need to survive and thrive—like clean water, food, education and medicine.
Since becoming a UNICEF Ambassador, Selena has also lent her support to other UNICEF initiatives including the Tap Project, the UNICEF Snowflake Ball, and the ELIMINATE Project.
In the wake of the devastating earthquake in Haiti, Selena was quick to take action by filming an emergency PSA, encouraging friends, family and fans to join with UNICEF to help save and protect the children of Haiti. She also participated in the MTV 'Hope for Haiti' telethon, which helped raise $65 million that was distributed between five organizations in addition to UNICEF for ongoing emergency relief efforts.
Although Selena has had a busy and successful year—she made her feature film debut in Ramona & Beezus this summer, is working on her second album, A Year Without Rain, and continues her starring role in Disney Channel's hit series Wizards of Waverly Place—Selena remains dedicated and enthusiastic about her commitment as a UNICEF Ambassador and proves that no matter what your age, you can make a difference.
Join Selena today and make a difference for the world's children!
