Thanks to the generosity of our customers traveling abroad, an outstanding $1.185 million+ was donated in 2012 through UNICEF’s UNICEF’s Change for Good
® program on American Airlines.
Change for Good on American Airlines is American’s largest – and one of its longest-running – charitable programs. With your support, and that of American’s people, known as “Champions for Children,” this volunteer-based program empowers American to make a difference for children in need.
Since 1994, your contributions of foreign currency have supported UNICEF’s lifesaving work for children around the world, including health and immunizations, clean water, nutrition, education, emergency and disaster relief. Every donation counts: just 55 cents can provide a notebook and pencil for a child to use in the classroom; $1.10 can immunize two children against polio.

In honor of the customers and employee volunteers who made the program’s efforts a success last year, American recently hosted a “Thanks A Million+” celebration with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). In conjunction with the event, a selected group also traveled to Rio de Janeiro for a UNICEF field visit to see first-hand how Change for Good on American Airlines collections are helping children.
Thanks A Million+ for making 2012 another successful year of fundraising for children in need. If you’d like to join us in this effort, please visit www.unicefusa.org/changeforgood
