It’s the morning after Halloween and last night’s costumes are in today’s garbage. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Every Halloween, there are countless children who go without a costume. Hit by the recession, their parents simply can’t afford it.

So with an eye toward helping out (not to mention recycling), we’re launching a donation drive. After Halloween 2010, simply mail your costume to the address below and we’ll make sure that for Halloween 2011, a child in need gets your gift.

How can you help?

After the holiday, mail your children’s used costumes to:

Mother Nature Network

191 Peachtree Street

Suite 4075

Atlanta, GA 30303
