About the Project

With the uncertain (and can we say stressful) times we live in, everyone could do with a little fun. And what better way to do that than by giving back at the same time! Join us for our first annual pumpkin carving contest, where we get into the spooky spirit and embrace our niceness nation community. 

From now until October 29th, you can submit your beautiful creation, so start brainstorming and get carving! Whether you’re creating a clown, a cat, or a princess, everyone who participates is important. With the money raised, we will be able to fund our fall lineup of projects so remember, as you carve that grin onto your pumpkin, you are helping us to put a smile on a child’s face this holiday season.
