Early in her career, CHLOE GRACE MORETZ (now 15) worked on Amityville Horror and Wicked Little Things. She graduated to playing a voracious vampire (Let Me In), a hit girl (Kick-Ass), a werewolf (Dark Shadows), and in 2013 will star in the remake of classic horror film Carrie. I think we can all agree, this young actress is scary talented! Can you imagine the unique Halloween costumes in this teen’s closet?
Now Moretz is putting her beloved Halloween holiday to good use as the UNICEF Trick or Treat Ambassador, fronting the United Nations Children’s Fund’s annual campaign, which encourages American kids to make a difference to the lives of youngsters in poorer countries.
The charitable child star is urging her fans to collect money for UNICEF as they visit houses this Halloween, and to set up fundraising pages on UNICEF’s website. You can even host a charitable party with these cool invitations! We at Hollywood Mom Blog love this charitable cause; it’s perfect for the season, an age-appropriate endeavor and we can’t wait for our own child actors to follow suit!
“Halloween! The absolute best. It’s got to be my favorite holiday. Design an outrageous costume. Put on crazy make-up. Become a totally different person or a completely wild creature. Do a total transformation. Then head out into the mystery of the night! I love to dress up and express myself. Can you tell? That’s why I love Halloween. And I guess I’m pretty lucky. As an actress, I express myself through unique characters all the time. I’ve had all kinds of different movie roles. I’ve played a kid vampire. I’ve been a girl with psychic powers. In one film, I was even a purple-wigged crime fighter…
That’s why I am so excited to be the 2012 Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF Ambassador! To me, there’s nothing quite so amazing as Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. For more than 60 years, it’s how so many of America’s kids have celebrated Halloween. We go door-to-door collecting money for UNICEF. We raise money that does so much good. We pay for food, medicine, clean water, and lots more to help kids in dozens and dozens of countries. That’s real power. Yes, collecting candy is cool, but Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is so much more. Something really, really special.
This fall, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is special in a whole new way. The old orange Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF boxes have gotten a makeover with wild characters: a monster, black cat, a princess, a pumpkin, a witch, and my fave—the vampire. And we can express ourselves more than ever, by designing our own customized UNICEF boxes. There’s a competition, too. It’s called the “Create-a-Character” contest, and it runs until October 26. Take a photo of your custom box and submit it online at trickortreatforunicef.org. Winning designs will become part of Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF’s 2013 collection!
So if you love Halloween like I do—and having the power to really make a difference in other kid’s lives—don’t wait! Order your TOT collection box. Express yourself. Use your creativity. Use your power to help kids all around the world!
On behalf of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF and myself, have a safe and SPOOK-TACULAR Halloween!”
