Selena Gomez Named Unicef Spokesperson

Selena Gomez has been named the latest celebrity Unicef spokesperson. She was hired for the organization’s 2008 trick-Or-Treat campaign, which encourages children to help the peers who are worse off than they are around the world. This is the campaign’s 58th year.

Unicef feels really lucky to have gotten someone like Selena to work with them. Unicef President Carly Stern says, "We are thrilled to have Selena be a part of the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF program this year. Young people can relate to Selena, and she is a great role model who we believe will greatly enhance the visibility of the program."

Selena says, "I am extremely excited to be this year's Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF spokesperson. I want to help encourage other kids to make a difference in the world and show them that Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is such a great, fun way to get involved."

Well Selena is certainly the it girl when it comes to tweens, so having her do this send a really good message to the young generation.
