For today's blogtober post, I wanted to share something that everyone can get involved in this Halloween, something that's for a very good cause. I saw an advert the other day by World Vision, a charity that works to help children all over the World that are living in poverty, about a campaign that they launch in October called 'Carve a Heart'. I thought it was a great idea for this time of year to spread awareness and to raise money, and I knew I wanted to contribute. I thought I'd share it on my blog too, to hopefully get others to join in ♥
Since it's the month of Halloween, pumpkins are now readily available in stores and lots of people will be buying them to make Jack-O-Lanterns. The charity World Vision have taken this as an opportunity to launch a campaign to help raise money to help children living in fear in conflict and war-striken countries. The 'Carve a Heart' campaign asks people to cut a heart shape into their pumpkin this year and to let it shine bright to spread awareness. As well as carving your pumpkin, they ask you to give a little donation to the charity. You can text HEART to 70060 to donate £3. I sent my text earlier :) You can read more about the campaign here. The charity are also encouraging people to share their pumpkins, or you can get creative and make something with a heart on, e.g a cake, on twitter and instagram with the hashtag #carveaheart for a chance to win prizes. I just think this is a great campaign to get involved in and hope that you guys can carve a heart this Halloween, too.
Thankyou for reading!
I'm interested to know who else carves a pumpkin for Halloween?
If you do, what's the coolest design you've ever carved in one? Mine was Jack Skellington's face, it looks adorable!
