Scroll down for details of the campaign.
The word Halloween means ‘The night before All Saints Day’. All Saints Day is the time when we celebrate religious saints - a special kind of good person or hero. We also remember friends and family members - our own heroes. It’s the time when we celebrate good winning over bad and light over darkness. We also think it’s a chance to show love to others.
The Real Halloween campaign is a way to challenge kids to explore the Christian faith, to do good and to enjoy great Fairtrade chocolate.
Quite often people feel that there has to be more to Halloween than dressing kids up as serial killers or monsters.
Each year we produce a pack. With events around Halloween (All Souls) likely to be cancelled this autumn we have not produced our usual Meaningful Treat box this year.
Instead you have the chance to send a customised Meaningful Treat Pack direct through the post. The pack includes your personalised message postcard, a challenge activity sheet, 2 bags of Chunky Buttons, and our new Sight Chocolate Bar (the bar which helps give 25 people back their eye sight).
The Meaningful Treat Pack is a way to challenge kids to look at the good in the world, to do a bit of good by giving to a charity and to enjoy some great Fairtrade chocolate. It is a chance for 5-11 year olds to shine this Halloween.
This is the the fourth year our pack has been available and it is a chance to engage and encourage the journey of faith. It is a similar approach that we have taken with our Real Easter Eggs and Real Advent Calendars.
