#1) Put out a teal pumpkin and let kids with food allergies come grab a safe treat from your home

Putting a teal pumpkin on your doorstep means you have non-food treats available, such as glow sticks or small toys. This simple act promotes inclusion for trick-or-treaters with food allergies or other conditions.  (If you don’t have a teal pumpkin you can print the poster from their website identifying your home as allergy free treat givers.)

  1. Provide non-food treats for trick-or-treaters
  2. Place a teal pumpkin in front of your home to indicate to passersby that you have non-food treats available
  3. Add your home to the Teal Pumpkin Project map 

#2) Send a Halloween Card to a child in the hospital on Halloween *and* raise funds for treating hospitalized children

Choose a card and add a note to help make Halloween extra special for a CHLA (Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles) patient this year.

For each card sent before October 30th, an anonymous donor has pledged to give $1 to CHLA’s Helping Hands Fund, up to $25,000!

Send your card today and your card will be printed and hand delivered, along with a fun goody bag, as a part of the hospital’s Halloween festivities.

#3) Reverse Trick-Or-Treat for a sick friend

HIf it’s difficult for your friend or their child to get out of the house this Halloween do a reverse trick-or treat. Invite friends and family to stop by tonight and drop off candy, apples, or fun gizmos. If they can’t take their kids trick-or-treating, offer to take their kiddos out for some fun! #WhatFriendsDo

#4) Carve a pumpkin and deliver it to a friend who is struggling with depression or other health issues

Carve a pumpkin and deliver it to someone who is unable to indulge in Halloween festivities this year. Don’t forget a candle.  And big hugs!!  :o)
