Halloween may look very different this year, but Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is still on—in an exciting new digital format! 2020 is the 70th anniversary of the popular fundraiser, known worldwide for teaching kids to help kids.

UNICEF has been a longtime and much-loved, inspiring MarkeTeam client, inspiring our employees to raise more than $100,000 over the years through in-office events and company matching.

Like Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, MarkeTeam events have also gone digital this year, maintaining the company’s sense of community and tradition of teambuilding through volunteerism.

“Events like this keep the FUN in fundraising,” says MarkeTeam Fun Committee Chairman, Scott Bell. “We’re excited to support UNICEF’s new digital program with our own virtual events.”

This year’s seasonal activities for employees include Boo! E-Grams, weekly Online Bingo, Pumpkin Carving and Costume Contests with prizes. 

Employees can also buy raffle tickets for fun prizes like a 3-month wine club subscription, airline tickets, or even extra vacation days!

MarkeTeam will even match all donations up to $5,000, to double the impact of employee participation.

If you’d like your kids to participate in UNICEF’s Trick-or-Treat, here’s how to sign up.
