Finnair partners with UNICEF on Asia education programme

European carrier Finnair said that its traditional Change for Good collection in cooperation with UN organisation UNICEF is again being carrying out over the holiday period on international flights.

This year the collection target is the UNICEF Schools for Asia programme, whose aim is to provide basic, quality education to children in 11 countries in Asia. A special focus is on marginalized and vulnerable children living in remote areas or regions of extreme poverty.

During the collection period, beginning today and lasting until January 5, 2014, passengers are able to place cash donations in any currency or denomination, including small value coins, in special envelopes provided in aircraft seat pockets.

Cabin crew members will collect the envelopes during the flight and deliver them to UNICEF.

Throughout the year, Finnair Plus card holders can donate their points to the Finnish Committee for UNICEF. Extra accumulated coins can also always be dropped off at permanent collection boxes around Helsinki Airport.
