Help Families In Need to Enjoy Halloween 2012

Help those in need this Halloween...

Halloween,an ideal time for families to enjoy Trick or Treating with each other gathering snacks to munch on for the days to come after the nightly event. Loveable or frightening Halloween costumes mark the occasion quite well, even if you didn't celebrate the holiday’s the knock on the door with children holding up their goody bags to ya is a dead give away.

Not all families have the luxury to spend a few extra dollars for their children to dress up as their favorite action hero or darling little princess this Halloween.There is no need to guilt you with propaganda much as the media does, showing an image of a child in need or a family with no home for a response, it has to come from you to take action.

Ways To Donate a Halloween Costume...

Donation centers like Goodwill,Salvation Army and Shelters during the holidays usually have charity drives to collect on behalf for families in need.If one is not available to you near your neighborhood, then simply ship it by mail to a donation center after confirming that they are willing to donate for you.

Keep in mind,It doesn’t have to be a brand spanking new Halloween costume to donate (I applaud to those of you who do), a used outfit is just as good to donate for charity. If you are going donating a used costume, please do your best to make sure to clean the costume to a standard worth donating for someone else, if not expect the outfit to be thrown out.

If you're aware of people around your neighborhood who aren’t able to enjoy the Halloween festivities due to lack of a Halloween costume, then share with them it means so much more if they can put a face to those with generous hearts.

Halloween social events through the efforts of the community are great means to donate an outfit for others to have. A fun,exciting way to donate a Halloween costume is having an exchange party where a raffle is held determining who gets your lucky number to swap costumes with you or given the option to donate it to charity.

Donating a costume is more than just a heartwarming experience for ya,add some enjoyment to their lives by inviting them to a Halloween Dance Party or a simple gathering between friends for them to have a good time during Halloween.

After the Halloween is all said & done, be sure to thank yourself the next day because you've just made the difference in someone else's lives,nothing else matters.

Have a memorable Halloween everyone!

What a good idea. Halloween isn't as well established here in the UK but the kids still enjoy dressing up and going out trick or treating and yes the costumes are another extra expense that hard up families have to find the money for or disappoint their children. With kids growing every year it's not something that can usually be put away for next year - really made me think , thank you.
