Tons of people would love to hang out with Selena Gomez, but how about hanging out with Selena Gomez and doing a good deed? Meet Selena: check. Help children in need: check. Sounds like a good day!
Selena is a big supporter of UNICEF and has traveled to different parts of the world to help little peeps in need. And it looks like she’s got someone going with her for her next big trip:

No word yet on who the lucky girl is or how she got chosen!
Even if you don’t get to help UNICEF with Selena (as in being right next to her), you can still help UNICEF with Selena (as in doing some of the same stuff she might be doing). We have a list of three things you can do to help the kiddies out.
+ Join a UNICEF club at your high school or college, or make one!
UNICEF clubs do things like fundraise, send letters to politicians, and write editorials for school newspapers. ’Member Selena putting on a concert for UNICEF? Well, you can put on concerts of your own through these clubs!
UNICEF has a place on its website aimed to show teachers how they can teach their students about helping kids. But, seriously, this is the kind of teaching you don’t need a teaching certificate to do. If you know your stuff, you can tell others!
+ Write letters.
If you’re under the age of eighteen you can’t vote, but it doesn’t mean you can’t write to your public officials. UNICEF suggests you write your public officials over issues like stopping child trafficking and protecting kids from cluster munitions.
