Austin & Ally’s Laura Marano is the new Trick Or Treat Ambassador for UNICEF – replacing Selena Gomez. The 17-year-old actress posted a photo via Instagram announcing the news.

She stated, “I’m so excited to celebrate Halloween this year by encouraging kids to support UNICEF’s lifesaving work. The Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign is a fun, easy way for kids to learn about world issues and to help other kids who are less fortunate.”

According to Bop & Tiger Beat – Laura will advocate, educate and raise funds for the original Kids Helping Kids Campaign. The campaign has already raised $170 million since 1950 to help children around the world.
