After cancelling their annual haunt because 2020 doesn’t want us to have any fun, Scare for a Cure hopes to keep the spirit of the season alive while raising money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Now they're asking you to help out with their Halloween Challenge.
Typically you would visit their haunted attraction and have the pants scared off of you, but that’s not a safe option. Instead they’ve created an inclusive, yet socially distanced, challenge.
Here’s how it works: first, build a display in your yard, on your front door, maybe in your home on your desk. Just make it spooky and not unusually offensive. Next, create a dedicated donations page with photos of your display on Scare for a Cure’s website at www.scareforacure.org/challenge.. You also have the option to add it to their map to help people visit your display if you like admirers. When everything is prepared, you’ll want to share your creation on all your social media platforms and encourage your followers, friends, and neighbors to get you to your donation goal.
Scare for a Cure will support your fundraising effort, putting it on their networks to gain more visibility. All donations will be hosted on Scare for a Cure’s website. You can get a yard sign to let gawkers know that all your hard work is for a good cause. The organizers of the fundraiser might even send a professional photographer to your house to capture your creation.
The challenge runs through November 9, and you can find all the information you need including registration info at www.scareforacure.org/challenge. Get involved and good luck.
