Teach Your Child About the World With Paddington Bear™

Discover wonderful people and places with Paddington Bear

Sign up for a monthly direct debit of €21 and as a bear-sized thank you, Paddington will send your child a personalised postcard (and more!) every month.

With each pack, they’ll explore a different country with Paddington and learn about the life of a child who lives there.

Perfect for children aged 4-10, Paddington’s Postcards is a wonderful way to teach your little adventurer about how other children and families live around the world.

Your monthly donation will go towards supporting vulnerable children around the world.



Your child’s journey begins with a welcome pack, including a letter, world map poster, travel journal, stickers and a postcard from London.

In signing up to Paddington’s Postcards, you’ll be setting up an €21 monthly donation to UNICEF. In return, you’ll receive Paddington’s Postcards for up to 12 months. After this time, your monthly gift will continue.

When you donate over €250 to UNICEF in a year, your donation is eligible for Tax Relief. This means, UNICEF is able to claim a refund on the tax paid on your donation.

With the Charity Tax Back Scheme you can help even more children and it won’t cost you a cent. Just a few minutes of your time. By simply filling in this form, UNICEF is able to claim at least €112.  

We hope you’ll feel able to continue to support UNICEF and protect vulnerable children all around the world, but you can change or cancel your gift at any time. 

Christmas Postage

To make sure your first Postcard will arrive before Chrismas, please sign up before the 15th of December.  After that any Postcards will be delivered in January.


How do I sign up for someone else’s child as a gift?

If you would like to sign up on behalf of a child for whom you are not the parent or legal guardian, we recommend addressing the postcards to the recipient’s family (e.g. The Murphy Family) when adding delivery details on the next page. Please also tick that you are not providing children’s data on the next page.
