ok, this is something that i recently just heard about, so you'll have to forgive me if you already have. it's the Teal Pumpkin Project, an initiative to support those tricker treaters who may have food allergies or food related sensitivities. it's very easy each year to get wrapped up in all the excitement around planning costumes and the idea of free candy, but i personally never stopped to think before about how this festive night affects those
with food concerns.
the idea with this project is that you place a teal painted pumpkin on your door step to let trick or treaters and parents know that this house is an allergy friendly house handing out non-food goodies. i mean seriously, how great is that! it can be anything like crayons, or stickers, or bubbles, etc. why not help make it easier for all kids, especially those with food issues, have a safe and happy halloween!
