Together, we have raised over £12 million for children
Thanks to the incredible support of our customers and employees, the easyJet and UNICEF Change for Good partnership has already raised over £12 million, helping to protect millions of children around the world from disease and keep them safe during emergencies.
This Easter we are collecting funds on board to support UNICEF’s vital work to help young children affected by conflict or disaster to continue to learn and play.
When disaster strikes, education and play is a lifeline for children, providing a safe space and a way of coming to terms with the distress they have faced.
The Nursery in a Box
The youngest children are often the most vulnerable. To support young children caught in emergencies, UNICEF has created the nursery in a box, which gives a teacher everything they need to create a safe and fun learning environment for up to 50 toddlers.
The nursery in a box costs £172/ €195. That’s less than £1.50 per seat on an easyJet plane. Just one flight could fund a whole nursery in a box to provide early years’ education for 50 children. The box is packed with fun items for play and learning including storybooks, stacking cups, puppets, memory and simple maths games and art supplies.
Look out for collections on board when you fly with easyJet between Tuesday 2nd April and Tuesday 30th April and donate your spare change to help build a safer world for every child.
How Change for Good donations help children
The Change for Good partnership of UNICEF and easyJet raises money and awareness for children around the world.
easyJet does not retain any of the money that is donated by customers on our flights.
Travelex, which collects and processes the coins and notes from airports around Europe for easyJet, makes a charge for this process and converts non-Sterling donations into UK currency.
As of October 2018, for every £1 (or equivalent) donated, 94p goes to help UNICEF’s work for children.
This includes money for programmes for children around the world, administration and management costs, as well as helping the Change for Good partnership raise more money for children in the future. UNICEF is entirely funded by voluntary donations.
