If you've ever trick-or-treated or greeted trick-or-treaters at your door, then you remember UNICEF's little orange boxes. In October, UNICEF provides children with these orange boxes so they can collect change as they trick-or-treat. The money then goes to help kids affected by global emergencies in a variety of ways. (There's a helpful guide on the back of each box to see how UNICEF plans to distribute these funds.)
This year, we are excited to announce that Scholastic is teaming up with UNICEF and featuring a classic Goosebumps character on the orange box, Slappy the Dummy! Even Goosebumps creator R.L. Stine couldn't hide his excitement and took to Twitter to share the news.
Is it true? Slappy is on the UNICEF box??!https://t.co/P9UUxJE825— R.L. Stine (@RL_Stine) October 11, 2017
Check out this short video from UNICEF featuring Slappy!
You can learn more about how kids can #BeScaryGood (and how you can request a box of your own, or boxes for a classroom!) by visiting trickortreatforunicef.org. The website also features a daily treat for each day in October. And that’s not all – if teachers order a class kit, they can also sign up for a chance to to win a classroom set of Goosebumps books!
And without further ado... here is the box!
