‘Peanuts Movie’ to Trick-or-Treat for Kids Charity

The Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign will team with 20th Century Fox’s “The Peanuts Movie” this Halloween to help raise funds for children in need.

Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of “The Peanuts Movie” characters will support the philanthropic effort, which has raised more than $175 million for UNICEF to provide children around the world with medicine, nutrition, clean water, emergency relief and education.

20th Century Fox’s “Peanuts Movie” hits theaters Nov. 6.

“We are thrilled that the beloved Peanuts characters will be joining us to Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF and to inspire a new generation of kids in the U.S. to help other kids around the world,” said Caryl M. Stern, President and CEO of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. “We had the honor of working with Linus in 1952, and this year, we are overjoyed that he’s enlisted Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of The Peanuts Movie characters to join him in support of UNICEF and the work they do to put children first.”

“We are excited to celebrate the release of The Peanuts Movie by partnering Charles Schulz’s iconic characters with the iconic Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF program,” said Zachary Eller, Senior Vice President, Marketing Partnerships, 20th Century Fox. “We know Charlie Brown and the gang will do their best to help raise funds for this most worthy cause!”

In addition to children going door-to-door on Halloween to raise funds for UNICEF, teachers of grade K-12 students can participate in the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF School Challenge throughout the fall.
