Day for Change

Learn and fundraise at school

Change starts here!

The Day for Change fundraising challenge saw thousands of students in schools across the UK and the world get involved to help malnourished children to grow up healthy and strong.  The challenge was simple: Change something about your school day and collect as much change and cash as possible – helping to keep children safe from hunger.

Every pound raised will be matched by The Power of Nutrition, a charitable foundation, so fundraising will go even further for children.

Schools everywhere joined together to share their images and stories of the wonderful fundraising activities at #dayforchange


How can my school get involved?

The big Day for Change took place on Wednesday 24 May 2017 with schools participating in activites until the end of term.

If you would like to get involved with learning and fundraising with Unicef at your school you can:

  1. Sign up to our brand new sporty fundraiser coming for 2018
  2. Register to support us for a full academic year, with events whenever suits your school’s calendar

Unicef UK Supporter Cel Spellman explains how your fundraising for children will go even further this year.
