Finnair and UNICEF Finland cooperate to support education in Asia

Finnair’s traditional Change for Good collection in cooperation with UNICEF is once again being carried out over the holiday period on international flights. This year the collection target is the UNICEF Schools for Asia program, aiming to provide basic, quality education to children in 11 countries in Asia.

A special focus will be on marginalized and vulnerable children living in remote areas or regions of extreme poverty.

During the collection period, beginning today 25 November and lasting until 5 January 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 cardholders can donate their points to the Finnish Committee for UNICEF. Extra coins can also always be dropped off at permanent collection boxes around Helsinki Airport.

Donations can also be made using the Finnish netbanking service through the UNICEF Finland website at
