For the past 10 years, money collected by BA and passed on to the
United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) has raised £17m.

In January this year, Roger Moore travelled to Mexico City with
his wife Kristina to visit several projects for street children
which have been funded by donations to Change for Good.
How does change for Good work?
The Change for Good programme works through the collection of
loose foreign coins on board British Airways flights.
Customers are encouraged by cabin crew to place their spare
currency into special envelopes.
Once collected, these donations are transformed into positive
help, by funding UNICEF's work to improve the lives of children
across the world.
The success of the scheme has been helped along the way by the
enthusiasm of BA staff who play their part by encouraging passengers
to part with useless small change that's worth £3 on average.
There are more than 170,000 homeless children in Mexico's cities,
with more than 14,000 working in one form or another.
