Teal Pumpkin

Wednesday, 7 October 2015


I was scrolling my Facebook's feed today when I saw Youtuber Cherry Dollface sharing a post saying "What It Means If You See A Teal Pumpkin This Halloween" I thought it was an odd title so I decided to check it out!


It was an article talking about the Teal Pumpkin Project which is a national campaign (for those who live in USA) launched by FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) that raises awareness of food allergies and other special diets such as celiac disease, diabetes, food intolerances, etc.

So all you need to do is paint a pumpkin in that gorgeous teal color and put it in a visible spot for all of those trick-or-treaters out there. By doing this, you're supporting a great cause and it's a fun way of including all the kids in the Halloween spirit.
Please check the Teal Pumpkin Project website for further information and inspiration! Because everyone can still have a good time this Halloween, parents included!

  4. I read about this last year and I think it's wonderful. If I had trick or treaters I'd certainly participate but I don't get any out here in the boonies.

  6. I was excited to learn about this last year and even more excited this year. I know that as a Mom of a child with food allergies it is a great way to advertise at your front door, lol

  7. Interesting! Are the people doing this also offering diet specific snacks such as healthy alternatives for diabetics that the kids would still like, gluten free, or peanut free etc? I would love to get involved!

  23. Pequenos detalhes fazem grandes diferenças.... Ainda bem que pessoas como tu, espalham o trabalho de outros, que deve ser partilhado!! :)
