Teal Pumpkins Mean an Allergy-Free Halloween
Article Continues Below Advertisement
The Food Allergy Community of East Tennessee (FACET) began the Teal Pumpkin Project for their local community as an effort to help families of kids with food allergies know that you support them.
According to Goodfullness.com, all you’ve got to do is put a teal pumpkin outside your house to indicate to trick-or-treaters and their parents that you are ready and willing to provide non-food items like stickers, glow sticks, and various other trinkets that won’t trigger food allergies. This way, Halloween can be fun for all.
The pledge reads:
This Halloween, I pledge to show, some extra kindness to the kids I know. I’ll get some non-food treats at the store, like glow sticks, bracelets, stickers and more! I will put my teal pumpkin out on proud display, on my porch, in a window, or on a bale of hay. My teal pumpkin means I support children with food allergies, because all kids deserve to have a safe, happy Halloween.
