Finnair and UNICEF help Asian children along the road to school

Finnair is once again carrying out the Change for Good collection on international flights over the Christmas period in cooperation with UNICEF Finland. This year’s campaign collection target is the UNICEF Schools for Asia programme, supporting education for children in 11 Asian countries.


Finnair’s 2011 Change for Good campaign collected a grand total of 58,566 euros, supporting work by UNICEF to improve children’s hygiene, sanitation and health in the Indian state of Bihar.

The main aim of Schools for Asia is to provide basic, quality education to millions of children across the Asian continent. A special focus is on marginalized and vulnerable children living in remote areas or regions of extreme poverty.

Change for Good will be carried out on almost all international flights over the six week period starting on November 26. The idea is simple: passengers are able to place cash donations of any denomination, including small value coins, in the special envelopes provided in aircraft seat pockets. Cabin crew members will collect the envelopes during the flight and deliver them to UNICEF.

Also, Finnair Plus loyal customers can donate their Finnair Plus points for use by UNICEF Finland.

The campaign period this year is from November 26 to January 6, 2013. Donations can be given also using Finnish web banking through the UNICEF Finland web site at .
