This Halloween, hand out more than a treat!

Denise and daughter Zoe share a cool way for Ontario readers and their kids to raise funds for children with disabilities at Holland Bloorview while winning prizes and celebrating Halloween.

The Change for Kids program features a coin card with 20 coins to hand out to trick-or-treaters. Kids get the chance to win amazing prizes, and for every coin entered at Change for Kids, Scotiabank will donate $5 to Holland Bloorview.

Don't forget to pencil in these accessible Halloween parties (too often kids who use wheelchairs or walkers can't get up stairs in the neighbourhood to collect candy):

Change for Kids Halloween Party at the Ontario Science Centre on the evening of October 27, 2012 and Change for Kids Monster March & Fun Fair at Holland Bloorview on October 28, 2012.

The Halloween spirit has a long tradition at Holland Bloorview. Every year students in our school walk through the hospital to show off their imaginative costumes.
