You have lots of 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 neighborhood. Here are some ideas for how to get others to join in:
Knock on Doors
The most impactful way to reach out to your neighbors is to have a face-to-face conversation about why the Teal Pumpkin Project is important. Share your personal story with them, hand them a flyer and encourage them to join you! Better yet, invite them to a teal pumpkin painting party or food-free Halloween event.

Homeowner Association or Building Management
Does your HOA or neighborhood have a mailing list? Ask them to include a blurb about the Teal Pumpkin Project in their next notice or newsletter.
Gift Them a Window Decal
Make a qualifying donation and you’ll receive a Proud Supporter window cling. Use this token of support to thank a neighbor who is participating or to encourage someone to join.
Share Your Enthusiasm on Social Media
If you’re friends with your neighbors on social media, post photos and share your excitement using #TealPumpkinProject. You’ll help spread the positive message of the Teal Pumpkin Project and inspire others.
There are now more than 1,500 homes added to FARE’s crowd-sourced Teal Pumpkin Project Fever Map! Be sure to drop a pin for your house, and encourage your neighbors to do the same!
