As the 2013 Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF Ambassador, Laura Marano has advocated, educated and fundraised for the original Kids Helping Kids® campaign, which has already raised more than $170 million since 1950 to aid children around the world. The campaign encourages families to bring a donation box and collect for children in need as they go door to door. By shopping at the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF stores on, and through Oct. 31, adults can also get into the Halloween spirit while supporting UNICEF. As national sponsor of this year’s Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign, HSNi, through its lifestyle brands HSN, Grandin Road and Chasing-Fireflies, will support UNICEF programs for children around the world. HSN Inc. will donate a minimum of 10 percent of the purchase price for each item sold through Halloween.
