ANNOUNCEMENT: Halloween Fun Pack Project

MILLSBORO, DE—As millions throughout the U.S. determine how best to celebrate the summer during the COVID-19 pandemic, one man has his sights set on Halloween.

Jason Rhodes, founder of the Halloween Fun Pack Project, hopes to provide up to 1,000 free “fun packs” with candy, stickers, trading cards, activity pages and more this October to children throughout the U.S. who may be unable to trick-or-treat due to COVID-19.

“Most people at this time of the year normally are thinking about beaches and vacations, not jack-o-lanterns and skeletons,” said Rhodes. “To make this project a reality, however, likely will require months of fundraising, which is why it’s important to start now.”

Rhodes is no stranger to starting Halloween planning early. For nine years, he organized Treat Street, a safe Halloween trick-or-treating event in Salisbury, MD, that required months of advance planning and a similar fundraising commitment to serve hundreds of children annually.

Established in response to parents concerned about taking their children trick-or-treating door-to-door following an increase in reported crime, that project was named the No. 1 youth event in the nation by JCI USA, then known as the U.S. Junior Chamber of Commerce.

“The goal then was similar to the goal of this project: to provide children with a sense of normalcy and enjoyment during what may be an otherwise disappointing time for them due to circumstances beyond their control.”

Rhodes hopes to raise $4,200 to support the Halloween Fun Pack Project through crowdfunding and sponsorships. A GoFundMe site with information on donor incentives and more is available at gofundme.com/f/halloween-fun-pack-project-covid19.

“All of the donor incentives play on the Halloween and monster theme, and most are exclusive to this project,” said Rhodes. “Several artists throughout the country, whose work has been featured by comic book and trading card companies such as Topps, Upper Deck, Leaf and Cryptozoic, are providing original art for donors in the way of signed monster- and horror-themed sketch cards. It has been exciting to see their interpretations of the genre.”

Sketch card artists signed on for the project so far include Rob Floyd of Portsmouth, VA; Justin Girard of Sayreville, NJ; Andrew Lopez of Whittier, CA; Clay Sayre of Dawsonville, GA; and Eric Sobel of Toledo, OH.

Parents may register children age 12 and under to receive a free fun pack beginning in September. Packs will be mailed the week of October 25 on a first-come, first-served basis in the order registrations are received.

“The goal is to send 1,000, but it all depends on funding,” said Rhodes. “Based on whether we meet or exceed our fundraising target, we could end up sending fewer or a whole lot more.”

And what if COVID-19 doesn’t turn out to be a problem this Halloween?

“Then we’ll join the world in celebrating,” said Rhodes. “However, with some states and jurisdictions already saying schools may not reopen until at least January and health officials predicting the virus may spike again in the fall, I think most people are anticipating that COVID-19 unfortunately is still going to be with us in some form this Halloween.

“Even if government or municipal orders don’t shut down trick-or-treating, I think there are going to be more than a few parents who will be concerned about the germ factor of accepting candy from unknown households. And there will always be children unable to trick-or-treat due to other considerations, such as general safety and medical conditions. I’m proud that this project will help fill that need. The more smiles we can put on kids’ faces this Halloween, the better.”

HALLOWEEN – NYC Halloween Parade – NY

NYC HALLOWEEN PARADE

We didn’t have much time to spend at the parade, but we stopped by in between going to Bane Haunted House & seeing Then She Fell on Halloween night. I recommend spending the entire evening and arriving early so you can get close to the parade route and see everything. Even though we were only there for a short while, it was an incredible experience.

HAUNTS – Club Fear Twisted Manor – CA

Club Fear Twisted Manor is my favorite home haunt of 2019. I always enjoy a good home haunt and there are several in SoCal, a few in Santa Clarita even, but these clowns really knock it out of the park. I love the slider clowns in the front. They were scary, but also really great with the kids. The idea of visiting a clown at his house is a really fun theme. I love the misdirection in the maze itself. The effect that follows is also a wonderful scary surprise. I thought the makeup is stand out. The actors really understand the art of the scare and do a magnificent job. The set design was great. It’s a good length for a home haunt. Overall an excellent, scary home haunt that I highly recommend.
