A Teal Pumpkin on Every Block
There is still time to find families near you who are willing to join the Teal Pumpkin Project®! The more homes participating, the more fun the night will be for kids in your community. Here are some ideas for how to get others to join in:
Knock on Doors
The most impactful way to reach out to your community is to have a face-to-face conversation about why the Teal Pumpkin is important. Share your personal story with them, hand them a flyer and encourage them to join you!
Gift Them a Magnet
Make a qualifying donation and you'll receive a Teal Pumpkin Project Proud Supporter magnet. Use this as a token of support to thank a neighbor who is participating or to encourage someone to join.
Share Your Enthusiasm
Post photos and share your excitement on social media using #TealPumpkinProject. You'll help spread the positive message of the Teal Pumpkin Project and inspire others.
Take Advantage of the Teal Pumpkin Project Participation Map
