EVERY PENNY AND PESO COUNTS
CHANGE for Good is a partnership between UNICEF and the international airline industry. Established in 1987, it’s one of UNICEF’s best-known alliances. Unused currency collected from passengers is converted to life-saving materials and services for the world’s neediest children.
Ten airlines are involved — Aer Lingus, Alitalia, All Nippon Airways, American Airlines, Asiana Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, Japan Airlines and Qantas— and their cabin crews collect spare coins and notes in special envelopes distributed to passengers.
Funds are transferred to UNICEF programs in more than 150 countries. Change for Good has raised more than $US70 million ($75 million). Other airlines run similar onboard collections, such as Virgin Atlantic’s Change for Children. www.unicef.org www.virgin-atlantic.com
