Teen star SELENA GOMEZ has been named a spokesperson for children’s charity

The 16-year-old star of Disney kids TV show The Wizards of Waverly Place
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.”

UNICEF (The United Nations Children’s Fund) 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.”
