I would like to take a moment to share a unique campaign with residents that has been circulating households this October.
The Teal Pumpkin Project hopes to make a more inclusive Halloween for children with food allergies that may sometimes feel left out when it comes to treats.
By leaving a teal coloured pumpkin on your doorstep this October 31st, you will be indicating to trick-or-treaters young and old that you will have non-food items for distribution. Teal pumpkins are available for purchase by local retailers or for a more cost efficient solution, some residents have suggested painting your own teal pumpkins as a family with paint from the dollar store!
This is a wonderful idea to make Halloween more inclusive and exciting for all children. To learn more about the project or to print a free informative poster to hang above your pumpkins for trick-or-treater’s knowledge, you can visit their website here.
