American Airlines for UNICEF USA

UNICEF’s global airline program

Change for Good is a partnership between UNICEF and the international airline industry. Established in 1987, it is one of UNICEF's best-known and longest-running partnerships. Currently ten international airlines support the Change for Good program. Thanks to the support of customers and participating airlines, the global Change for Good program has generated more than $174 million, which has contributed to UNICEF’s efforts to helping save and improve the lives of millions of children around the world.

American Airlines’ impact for children

In the United States, American Airlines has been the participating airline of the Change for Good program since 1994. Travelers on selected international American Airlines flights can donate their extra U.S. and foreign currencies to help UNICEF provide lifesaving and lifechanging services to children and their families. To date, American Airlines has raised over $17 million dollars for Change for Good

American Airlines employees: volunteer with Champions for Children

Champions for Children is a volunteer program that empowers American Airlines employees to take action for children as they perform everyday work duties. More than 5,000 Champions for Children volunteer their working hours to collect foreign and domestic currency contributions from American Airlines customers on select international flights.

Change for Good on American Airlines is proudly supported by the Association of Professional Flight Attendants (APFA). Change for Good on American Airlines could not exist without the incredible support of Champions for Children.
