SIENA PADULO: Imagine creating a world where no child felt left out.  Well, you can help do that for one night.

Did you know that almost half a million kids can't trick-or-treat with their families because of something as simple as stairs to your front door?

But now you can join the close to 100  000 homes already changing that.  It's super easy and fun to make your home accessible and inclusive at Halloween.

Just place one of our free Treat Accessibly lawn signs at the end of your driveway, telling your neighbours and children with disabilities they're welcome at your home.

It also shares with your community that you support creating an inclusive and accessible society every day.

If you love Halloween imagine the fun of setting up a treat station at the end of your driveway so kids with mobility, sensory, or intellectual disabilities can enjoy trick-or-treating with everybody else.  Plus you get to have fun seeing and talking to all the parents and kids in your neighbourhood and really get into the community spirit this year.
