As the mayor from The Nightmare Before Christmas says, ” Great Halloween, everyone!” To which Jack Skellington replies,” I believe it was our most horrible yet!” And to which jookie Jill would reply,” I believe it was another amazingly fun year!”
As always, thank you, thank you, thank you to my community of wonderful families who celebrate this Halloween tradition with me to raise money for an important kids cause each year. So many of you come year after year, and it is an absolute treat to see you! We always get some new families every year, too, and I hope you will make it an annual tradition as well!
Our beneficiary this year for the 12th annual Halloween Photo Fundraiser was The Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights who jookie started fundraising for back in the Spring through our Square Kids event. We raised about $900 then, and now with the Halloween event, and the collaboration of 74 kids and parents in costumes, we are now over $3800 in donations this year to help them in the incredibly important work they do to aid unaccompanied immigrant children trying to make their way to a safer place in the world.
It’s so important for jookie to not just be a successful business in the community, but to be a MEANINGFUL one. To advocate for and to help kids in need in our neighborhood, our city, and our world. Thank you again to the families who joined us this Halloween to help us do just that! We’re all in this together.
