Make Halloween count and do a good deed by Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF. By raising funds for UNICEF you can help us get water, education and medicine to the children who need it most.

Start with a UNICEF box or canister. Order boxes online, or create your own using the UNICEF canister wrapper at the link below.

Then go door-to-door on Halloween-or create your own fundraiser-and ask everyone to help you raise money for kids around the world.

Once you've collected the money, send it to UNICEF to help save kids lives.

Celebrate Sight Night on Halloween

Sight Night - Give the Gift of Sight on Halloween

Halloween Night is "Sight Night' for the Gift of Sight Foundation. You can reduce and recycle by participating in this worthwhile cause.

Each year on Sight Night, girls and boys collect used eyewear during trick-or-treat. All the eyewear collected on Sight Night is then cleaned, repaired and hand-delivered to underprivileged people in developing countries who couldn't otherwise afford them.

Since the program began in 1999, more than 1,000,000 pair of eyewear have been collected -- enough to help approximately 30,000 people on 30 separate missions!

In 2008, the Gift of Sight Foundation has 20 International missions planned and will need to recycle 1.2 million pair of used eyewear to make these missions a success.

How to Participate in Sight Night

Here are six key tips to help you plan ahead for your Halloween Sight Night.

  1. Step 1: Get Your Group Together!

    Sight Night is a great service project -- the perfect opportunity to give while you receive. So plan ahead to collect alone or get a group together. To organize your group, start by downloading the Collection Guide to share with friends, classmates, scout troops and others. This will help get your team excited about collecting used eyewear on Sight Night.

  2. Step 2: Promote Eyewear Collection Through the Media (optional)

    Three or four weeks before Halloween, contact your local or community newspaper, radio or TV station to promote your used eyewear collection by asking the community to join in on Sight Night. The more people who know about your involvement in the program, the more used eyewear you'll collect! Spread the word by using a sample news release and Public Service Announcement (PSAs).

  3. Step 3: Place Doorhangers Along Collection Route

    The week before Halloween, distribute doorhangers on your trick-or-treat route to give your neighbors time to find their used eyeglasses and sunglasses. Keep a list of addresses where you left doorhangers so you can return to them on Sight Night for pick up.

  4. Step 4: Ghost Hunt for Used Eyewear on Sight Night!

    The big night is here, so put your official Sight Night volunteer sticker on your costume and get out to collect prescription eyeglasses and non-prescription sunglasses.

  5. Step 5: Enter Your Results Online at the Sight Night Website

    Enter your results online, November 1-9 -- and don't forget to tell us about your experience.

  6. Step 6: Turn In Collected Eyewear to:

    1) Your local LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, Sears Optical, Target Optical, Sunglass Hut store or participating optometrist. Find a store near you.

More Ideas for Green Halloween Costumes

Ways to reuse and recycle costumes from "365 Ways to Live Green: Your Everyday Guide to Saving the Environment"

Before splurging on a costume that may only be worn once, consider what is in the closet.

  1. See if there is anything that can be modified and mixed up to be used as a costume.
  2. Left over 1980's clothes or an old sport coat can be the beginning of a retro-theme costume.
  3. Overalls and a plaid shirt can be the basis for a farm or scarecrow costume.
  4. A common theme for teens is dead anything - from a dead prom queen to a dead baseball player. All it takes is an old dress or uniform and some scissors and makeup.
  5. If your closets aren't serving up any costume ideas, visit a local consignment or thrift shop.

Even the Skeletons are Going Green

This will be the third year that I've volunteered in my daughters' classroom to teach them a bit of bone anatomy and also to be less afraid of skeletons.

I started using skeleton puzzles to teach children about bone anatomy in 2006 so for another year will be recycling the puzzle and reusing ideas that I've come up with as teaching handouts.

So far, I have taught bone anatomy to preschool children, Kindergarteners, First and Second graders.

This year I'll be adding in third graders to the list of students. We'll be reusing a skeleton that the school already has in storage.

      I dress my dogs up every year in these cute little chihuahua costumes and I usually just throw them out afterwards because they're cheap and because it's fun to see them in a new outfit each year. But in the name of helping out with our planet by reducing waste, I'm going to recycle their chihuahua clothes this year and keep them for the next Halloween. I might have to pay a bit more for the higher quality dog costumes so that they actually last a few years, but I think it will be worth it!
