Goosebumps and UNICEF Team Up for Charity



The fine folks at UNICEF have joined forces with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Goosebumps publisher Scholastic for this year’s “Trick-or-Treat of UNICEF” campaign.  Over one million Goosebumps-themed relief boxes, which feature images of characters such as Slappy the Dummy, will be distributed to areas of need.

If you want to get involved, you can also make a direct donation, which will go towards emergency relief work for children affected by recent natural disasters. They’ll be accepting donations until June 2018, so even though Halloween’s over, there’s still plenty of time to make a difference.

The Trick-or-Treat of UNICEF website also features a ton of Goosebumps-themed content for you to enjoy, including a browser game, an interview with R.L. Stine, and a quiz. Slappy also took a short break from being evil to record the following video about this year’s campaign, so you’d better remember to donate because you definitively don’t want to get on the wrong side of Slappy.
