8 Ways to Trick-or-Treat for GOOD

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012
by Corey

Halloween. It’s all about the candy, right? Well not long ago, kids in costume had just as much fun procuring pennies for a worthy cause as they did grabbing fistfuls of treats. Why? Because doing good deeds is fun and meaningful, even for the youngest of the bunch. So this year, consider trick-or-treating-for-good in lieu of (or in addition to) trick-or-treating-for-goodies and see what all the excitement is about.

How does your family put the “meaning in the greening” on Halloween? Do share the good!

Trick-or-treat for good

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

This Halloween, children, tweens and teens will dress up in costumes and go door-to-door.

But their mission won’t be to collect candy – they’ll be trick-or-treating for good.

Check out these great initiatives:


Trick-or-treating for cell phones

Trick-or-treat for Unicef (the tradition that began long before kids received piles of candy at each door)

Do you know of other trick-or-treat for good initiatives that we should know about? Did your family take part in something like this this year? Let us know. We’d love to hear your stories.
