Let's Boo Someone! For Our Second Year We Will Scare Up Some Fun.

Let's Boo someone!

We are ready to help promote local businesses, uplift local families and support a local charity too.  

This project is a distanced/no contact event and will focus on uplifting the community.

We know there are some families that are not wanting to get out and be in large crowds yet to Trick or Treat, so we are offering Boo Baskets again this year. 

How do we Boo someone?

•Fill a Halloween Bucket full of goodies (candy individually wrapped, gluten free, nut free and allergy free, glow sticks, stickers, toys and Knick knacks etc)

•Place your I’ve Been Boo’d printouts in the basket

•Leave the basket on the doorstep, ring the doorbell and run!

We may not run to fast LOL!

How do you Pass A Boo On?

•The recipient opens the door to see they have been boo’ed. Kids are delighted by the surprise bucket full of goodies and the instructions inside explain to them that they must now make a basket to two and continue to Boo.

In our experience they love this more than the candy.

•They will then place the other hand out in the bucket in their window which tells everyone else in the neighborhood that they have been boo’ed and not to leave another basket.

The idea is that the fun of boo’ing continues till Halloween night and possibly pay it forward through the holidays.

We want the baskets to be something we will all feel proud of. This means we will be shopping for a boat load of goodies, and knickknacks to fill the baskets. We will also do the work of delivering all 100 baskets throughout NOCO. 

Where will we be Boo’ing? 

Berthoud, Fort Collins, Loveland, Wellington, Timnath, Windsor, Johnstown, Milliken depending on how many sponsors we get to support creating the buckets.  

The families will be chosen randomly, and the buckets will be delivered during the second and third weeks of October.
