World Children’s Day is UNICEF’s global day of action marking the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). Each year on Nov. 20, UNICEF advocates, raises awareness and raises funds for the most pressing issues facing children.

Since 1994, American has been the participating U.S. airline in the UNICEF campaign, supporting projects and programs that improve children’s basic needs in communities throughout the world. This year, the need is greater than ever as the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic puts at-risk children and communities in greater need of resources like critical supplies, healthcare services, and education support.

Together with governments and partners like American Airlines, UNICEF will continue its mission to protect the rights of every child, and make sure they have a safe and healthy childhood and a future they deserve.
