Throughout October, the actress will encourage kids to help raise funds for vulnerable children around the world by carrying the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF box on Halloween.
Parker was a UNICEF ambassador in 1997 and has been involved ever since, a UNICEF press release said.
In 2003, she helped launch the Trick-or-Treat campaign at the NBA store with basketball star Dikembe Mutombo.
"My involvement with Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is particularly dear to me because I participated as a child and now that I am a mother I want to share the experience with my son," Parker said. "Halloween can be very focused on the amassing of bucket-loads of sweets. Yet, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF demonstrates that kids can do good deeds and still have fun."
