2023 Costume Contest
It’s that time of the year again! Enter your child with HPE or family in our annual Halloween costume contest!
Holidays can be a challenge for parents of children with holoprosencephaly, and there are so many uncertainties that we face especially at Halloween:
- What costume?
- How do we incorporate the wheelchair into the costume?
- How do we get to the front door if there are steps?
- My child has a g-tube, so what do we do with all of this candy?
- We won’t spend this Halloween in the hospital again, will we?
Even with the challenges, we push forward, we make plans, and we create great memories with our children. And sometimes, our kids end up with the best costumes in the neighborhood!
To celebrate our special children, we invite you to share a photo of your child in costume and participate in our fundraising contest! Campaign for your favorite photo by sharing a link on Facebook, Instagram, TicTok, email, etc. By collecting donation votes, $1 per vote, you’ll be supporting Families for HoPE in its effort to bring HoPE to HPE families.
We all know too well that life can be unpredictable, so you may submit a photo of your child in costume from this current year or a past year. If you’re a bereaved family, please continue to participate. This would be a great way to share a special memory of your child.
This year, there will be two prize categories—(1) individual costume and (2) family or group costumes.
$100 Amazon gift card for individual costume with the most votes.
$100 Amazon gift card for the family or group costume with the most votes.
2nd place in both categories will be awarded with $50 Amazon gift cards.
3rd place in both categories will be awarded with $25 Amazon gift cards.
