Boo! It’s time for some Halloween inspired kindness this month!
While trick-or-treating and decorating are fun, we get most excited about spreading some kindness in our neighborhoods during the month of October! One of the best ways to turn your neighborhood into a community is to connect with your neighbors. This month’s “Boo It Forward” campaign encourages you to create a community in your neighborhood through some Halloween fun!
What is “Boo It Forward”? As a family, you secretly deliver buckets of fun to a couple of neighbors to spread some kindness and share the holiday spirit. You can personalize your buckets of fun for each household you boo making the surprise even more exciting! After they’ve been “boo’ed” they have to do the same to a few different neighbors. The trend continues until, hopefully, everyone in your neighborhood has been “boo’ed”. This is a great way to get the whole neighborhood involved in some holiday kindness! Everyone in the neighborhood will feel more connected to the families they see every day, but may not necessarily know that well.
So let’s get boo’ing!
Items Needed for This Month’s Campaign
How to Do This Month’s Campaign
Kim says her family “likes to go out just after dark, drop off at the door and do a little ding-dong ditch (like the old days Moms) and hide along the other side of the house so we hear them as they answer and get excited. The kids love doing it this way.”
As an extra not-so-spooky way to boo your friends, classmates, or club/troop members this month, we encourage you to use our “Boo-grams”. A lot of schools get into the Halloween spirit with boo-grams, but often there are kids who don’t receive any boo-grams which can make them feel left out. Whether your school already does boo-grams or not, we encourage you to secretly “boo” those who need some kindness the most!
