£1 Million Raised for UNICEF by easyJet Passengers

easyJet has revealed that since launching its partnership with children’s charity UNICEF in July, it has raised over a million pounds through passenger donations. To celebrate the achievement, easyJet unveiled a range of special edition aircraft branded with the ‘Change for Good’ slogan.

The donations were  taken on board flights travelling across North Africa and Europe and were made up of spare change and unused foreign currency. The million pounds raised so far will help UNICEF protect 2.5 million mothers and children against harmful and potentially deadly diseases, like tetanus, by providing simple vaccinations. The money raised by easyJet adds to the £52 million raised so far for UNICEF’s 'Change for Good' program, bringing the total up to £53 million and counting.

The million pound milestone, which was reached in just 5 months, was celebrated with more than fifty staff members dressed as Father Christmas unveiling the new ‘Change for Good’ aircraft. Cabin crew are keeping their Santa hats on throughout the month of December to encourage even more donations this holiday season.

easyJet CEO Carolyn McCall said that the company was “absolutely thrilled to have raised £1m, it will help save the lives of so many children. I’d like to thank our passengers who have so generously donated to this worthy cause and everyone at easyJet who has supported the fundraising effort.” The executive director for UNICEF UK, David Bull, also expressed his delight saying that “the generosity and support shown by easyJet passengers has been truly heartwarming.”
