Together, we have raised over
£7 million for children
This summer we are collecting funds on board to support Unicef’s vital work to help keep children safe from polio and to help eradicate this devastating disease once and for all.
Look out for collections on-board when you fly with easyJet starting from Friday 1st July until Friday 30th September and donate to help build a safer world for every child.
Thanks to the generosity of our customers, the easyJet and Unicef Change for Good partnership has already raised an incredible £7 million, helping to protect millions of children around the world from disease and keep them safe during emergencies.
Keeping children safe from polio
Millions of children around the world are in danger of contracting polio –it’s highly contagious and can lead to life-long paralysis. There is no cure, yet there is a safe and effective vaccine. It can cost as little as 27 pence or 33 cents to protect a child against polio forever.
In 1988, polio was endemic in 125 countries. Today, thanks to successful vaccination programmes like those funded by easyJet and UNICEF’s Change for Good partnership, there are just two: Pakistan and Afghanistan. We are close to the goal to end polio forever, but to do so we have to reach every child.
By donating your change to UNICEF, in any currency, you can help UNICEF keep more children safe from polio.
Changing the world for good for children
Thanks to the support of easyJet customers and employees, our Change for Good partnership has already made an extraordinary impact:
- Helped to vaccinate 5.3 million mothers and babies against deadly diseases
- Helped keep 2 million children safe from polio
- Protected 4.8 million children from blindness through vitamin A supplements
- Helped Unicef support children affected by emergencies like the Nepal earthquake and the crisis in Syria and the surrounding region
- Plus – recently your support helped purchase more than 4 million polio vaccines to protect children in Afghanistan
Thank you for your support.
