WWE and UNICEF Kid Power are teaming up to help give kids the power to save lives by connecting their everyday activity to real-world impact. UNICEF Kid Power is a program of UNICEF USA which helps students discover how everyday activities — like moving and learning — can make a difference in the world. By getting active with UNICEF Kid Power, kids unlock therapeutic food that UNICEF delivers to severely malnourished children around the world. The more kids move and learn, the more lives they save.
UNICEF Kid Power is free for all teachers in the U.S. to use. Join thousands of others across the country connecting everyday actions to real-world impact. Sign up here!
