In honor of the Halloween season, the U.S. Fund for UNICEF invites you to participate in their annual Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign.
Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is one of the longest-running youth volunteer initiatives in America. For 62 years, it has helped motivate kids to become active global citizens while teaching the fundamental value of helping others.
Through Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, more than $167 million has been raised, providing children in 190 countries and territories with much-needed health care and immunizations, clean water and sanitation, nutrition, education, emergency relief and more.
New This Year
A New Look: Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF returns this October with a new look, introducing six new Halloween characters featured on individual collection boxes. The new design encourages children to express their support through choice.
Create-a-Character Contest: For the first time in campaign history, those trick-or-treating for UNICEF are invited to submit original designs for their own collection boxes. Submitted designs will have a chance to be part of Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF’s 2013 limited edition collection. A winning design from each category (children ages 4-8, 9-12, and 13 years and older) will be chosen and announced on Halloween, Oct. 31. The contest will run from September 1 through October 26.

Despite signs of economic recovery, record numbers of Americans are currently relying on food assistance. In fact, one in eight Americans will receive help from a food bank in 2012, and among the most needed items are sources of high quality protein. Over the last five years, United Egg Producers (UEP) has donated nearly 5 million dozens of eggs to help fill the need.
Right now, they are asking you to go to their Facebook page and Pledge to Buy UEP Certified Eggs. For every pledge made to buy UEP Certified eggs, one dozen eggs will be donated to a food bank. Help make sure your neighbors don’t go to bed hungry.

We’ve all experienced bad breath, but with summer upon us and love in the air it’s time to be on the safe side! Dentyne has just released their Safe Breath Survey (commissioned by Wakefield Research) that takes a look at some of the best and worst “breath offenders” so you’re prepared for every intimate moment. And with Dentyne’s new Split2Fit pack, designed to fit almost anywhere, practicing safe breath while in those precarious situations will be easier than ever!
I went on a first date, back in my single girl days, and the guy ordered caesar salad and a garlic crusted steak at dinner. When we went to a movie afterward, all I could smell was garlic! I even offered him a piece of gum, which he declined – needless to say I never saw him again!
My story fits right in with the Safe Breath Survey findings: 86% of people polled could not disregard bad breath on a first date! They also found that 58% have lost interest in someone they were attracted to due to bad breath and that 48% of women 18 to 34 would end a relationship with someone who had consistently bad breath!

I started Nicole's Nickels in February 2009 to bring all of the great deals I was finding to my friends and family and then it took off! Since then I've continued my full-time day job as an attorney while blogging in the evenings and on weekends. Nicole's Nickels has evolved into a site that lets you know about great new products and services! I help my clients during the days at the non-profit I work for and then my Nicole's Nickels readers learn about the best new products for their families! I live in south/central Florida and have 2 cute dogs (see their picture under "mascots") and an amazing husband who has a spunky 6 year old we get to spend a lot of time with. I hope you'll take the time to "like" me on Facebook, follow me on Twitter and/or subscribe to get my daily updates via email to stay in touch!
