Participants in the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF report getting satisfaction from their good work and having fun

Rachel Aptekar has been a parent of North Davis Elementary School child and a UNICEF school-site coordinator for years, while her kids attended that school.  Rachel loves the program, in part, because she has great memories of carrying the classic orange UNICEF box while Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF back in New York when she was a kid and, in part because it gives some meaning to an otherwise frivolous holiday.  While less concerned about too much frivolity, her daughter Laura Aptekar-Cassels, now 14 and attending Holmes Junior High, loves Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF because “it’s helping other people while getting a bunch of stuff for myself.”  A veteran of the program, Laura’s favorite moments when trick or treating are when “people are really happy to give money and know about” Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF.  Her younger brother, Dylan, gets satisfaction “knowing that I’m helping other people.  So much stuff is going on that others need help with,” and “I can help with no cost to me.”  “It’s good to know that there are people out there willing to donate.  Someone once gave me and my sister $10 each … and that was like wow,” reports Dylan.
