Making Trick-or-Treating Accessible to Children of All Abilities

CLUPumpkin_LeftEach year, millions of children enjoy trick-or-treating on October 31. However, for some children, traditional candy isn’t an option. Between childhood obesity, juvenile diabetes, food allergies, and other special needs, the population of children excluded from Halloween traditions grows each year.

Help us make Halloween fun for ALL kids! It’s a simple three-step process:

  1. Add some non-food treats to your candy stash.
  2. Print out a decal and put it on prominent display for trick-or-treaters to see.
  3. Share the fun of Halloween with ALL kids!

For more details on how to make this a fun holiday for all children, please visit Mommies of Miracles.
