Happy Halloween!

Text "TOT" to "UNICEF" (864233) and donate $5

This year—for the first time—you can Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF with your mobile phone. Just text the word “TOT” to 864233 (UNICEF) to make a $5 donation ($5 charge will be on your next bill) and help UNICEF save kids’ lives.

Here’s a bit of background on Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF from Wikipedia.

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is a fund-raising program for children sponsored by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). Started on Halloween, 1950 as a local event in a Philadelphia suburb, the program historically involves the distribution of small orange boxes by schools to trick-or-treaters, in which they can solicit small change donations from the houses they visit.[1][2][3] Millions of children in the United States, Canada, Ireland, Mexico, and Hong Kong participate in Halloween-related fund-raising events for Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, and the program has raised over US$188 million worldwide.[4]
