Fall is always a busy time in my family. In addition to several birthdays, there’s Halloween, one of our favorite holidays, and all of the preparation that goes along with it. In two weeks we’ll be making our annual pilgrimage to Burt’s Farm in north Georgia for the all-important selection of pumpkins. Then the real fun (and mess) begins as we attempt to carve our numerous pumpkins with the help of a bunch of really excited kids.
Every September and October, pumpkins and pumpkin stencils are the most popular content on BHG.com. This year — for the first time ever — Better Homes and Gardens is tapping into the popularity of its stencils to support a selection of nonprofit partners, including For Momentum client and friend Rebuilding Together.
Better Homes and Gardens projects that the “Carving for a Cause” campaign will generate nearly 23 million impressions (both in print and online) for its five nonprofit partners among BHG’s core audience of active and influential consumers. In addition to the awareness campaign, a $2.00 donation to the charity will be made for each stencil downloaded, up to a maximum of $5,000 per charity ($25,000 total).
Better Homes and Gardens worked with each charity to create unique pumpkin stencils that reflect the nonprofit’s mission. Rebuilding Together’s selections feature a cute cottage scene or a welcome home sign. To download the Rebuilding Together stencils, click here.
