How did you spend your Halloween night? Did you go out trick-or-treating, or maybe to a party? We are fortunate to be able to forget reality and have one night of the year to be frightened. For the children of Syria, every night is frightening.
This year we did something different and have carved our pumpkin with the shape of a heart as part of the World Vision charity campaign, A Night of Hope.
Tristan and Kallista very much enjoyed carving their first pumpkin (with a little help from Daddy). A heart was perfect for their first time; it’s simple and it carries a meaningful message.
World Vision UK, the world’s largest overseas children’s charity, turns a night of fear into A Night of Hope for the child refugees of Syria. You know that we put our children’s education as our top priority, as most parents do. No matter whether your children attend a public school, private school, or are educated at home or while travelling the world, it’s a child’s right to have an education. By participating in A Night of Hope, you’ll send these vulnerable children of Syria the message that we have not forgotten them and help them safely continue their education. Hani (8), is just one of the children you’ll be helping.
What can you do for the Night of Hope?
Halloween night may be over, but you can still have some fun and help the children of Syria. If you have a spare pumpkin, use one of the templates available.
Or create your own heart shape to carve up a Jack-O-Lantern of hope. If you don’t have a pumpkin, World Vision has a virtual pumpkin available for you without the muss and fuss of a real one!
If you can, you’ll help World Vision UK, the world’s largest overseas children’s charity, turn a night of fear into A Night of Hope for the child refugees of Syria.
