“In 2012 easyJet formed a partnership with UNICEF the world’s leading organisation for children. The partnership runs across easyJet’s pan-European network during the peak summer and winter seasons, reaching out to the airline’s 55 million passengers who travel on the airlines’ 200 aircraft on over 600 routes across 30 countries.
“The programme branded Change for Good offers all our customers the chance to support the world’s children simply by dropping their spare change into specially designed pouches, which are handed out by easyJet’s crew during flights….
“David Bull, Executive Director, UNICEF UK, added: “I am thrilled that UNICEF is now on board with easyJet, the UK’s largest and fastest growing airline. Together we can help save the lives of some of the world’s most vulnerable children.
“This partnership gives us at UNICEF a unique opportunity, to generate significant new support for our vital work with children and also bring information about our mission to an audience of millions. As two global organisations whose brands are recognised across the world, our new partnership is the perfect match for children.”
The new partnership, which will operate for an initial three year period, will form part of UNICEF’s global Change for Good initiative, which has raised millions of pounds for the world’s most vulnerable children through partnerships with leading airlines across the globe.
As the person who sent this on to MCFly wrote – “and how many children will be made homeless, forced to migrate or drowned by the impact of EasyJet’s CO2 emissions ?”
Hypocrisy Advisory Notice: MCFly co-editor Marc Hudson flew to Australia in November 2010 to spend a year with his parents. And flew half way back in 2011. MCFly co-editor Arwa Aburawa flew to Spain and back earlier this year. All of us are lying in the gutter. Some of us are looking at the stars and thinking – “I bet human life couldn’t survive on something that hot…”
