In 5/Under 5: Send a Bat-o-gram to a Child Spending Halloween in a Hospital

Hey, we haven't had an "In 5 minutes/Under 5 dollars" challenge lately! Well, you're going to love this one because it's FREE and takes only ONE minute!

Send a Bat-o-gram to a child spending Halloween at Children's Hospital LA. Wish them a FRIGHTFULLY FUN Halloween with one of these adorable cards below. Such a sweet idea and just a quick click away!


Which makes me wonder... do YOU know of any other hospitals or organizations that make sending holiday greeting cards so easy? If you do, please share them with me. OR, volunteer to create a list of participating organizations and be a guest blogger on ITLT!

While you're in the Halloween mood, check out our decoration and goody bag ideas or hop on over to DoSomething.org for some hauntingly good fun! I love this project of theirs: Trick or Treat for TP. Did you know that 1 in 3 low-income American families struggles to afford basic household goods, like diapers, toilet paper, and soap? "In addition to food, food banks and food pantries provide these items to visiting families. Trick-or-treat for candy (duh!) AND toilet paper to stock your local food bank or food pantry for families in need."

UPDATE:
This is a quick update about the Bat-o-grams! This article states that over 16,000 Bat-o-grams were delivered to kids at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who participated in our "In 5/Under 5" October challenge!!
