If you grew up in the 1980s, you'll probably remember trick-or-treating for UNICEF with those paper boxes they'd hand out to us in elementary school—if you're so old you don't, jog your memory with the video, after the jump. Well, it might surprise you to know that UNICEF is still running the project—yup, with the same materials and flat-pack-pop-up boxes. But this year, with the help of Lauren Bush's super-cool charity FEED Projects, UNICEF trick-or-treaters can opt to carry this jack-o-lantern trick-or-treat tote.
For every $18 bag purchased FEED will donate $3.50 to the the US Fund for UNICEF—NB: HSN is offering the bag at a special discount price of $12.95. The rest of the sale proceeds is enough to provide one child in need with a year's supply of micronutrient powders, which help prevent malnutrition and death in children under the age of five.
