UCP’s “Halloween Without Limits” launches October 1!

United Cerebral Palsy is inviting Halloween revelers of all ages to enter our #Halloween Without Limits digital photo contest this October. No one should have to miss the fun of dressing up for Halloween because they have a disability which may not be accommodated by traditional costumes. Taking into account assistive technology such as wheelchairs and walkers or the sensory needs of children with Autism and Down syndrome can sometimes be a frustrating task. So, UCP is encouraging creativity by rewarding costumes designed to work specifically for the unique challenges faced by people with disabilities.

Beginning on October 1, we invite parents and individuals with disabilities to share their most creative, kooky and fun costumes to our Facebook page by tagging @UCPNational and using the hashtag #HalloweenWithoutLimits. It doesn’t matter if you’re a princess or a hero, a ghost or a ghoul, as long as you have gone the extra mile to accommodate a disability.

Winners will be chosen based on the number of combined “likes”, shares and comments. There will also be a “Most Creative Costume” chosen. Photos of children under the age of 18 must be submitted by a parent or guardian.

 

#HalloweenWithoutLimits How To: 

1. “Like” UCP on Facebook.

2. Upload your photo(s) to our Facebook wall, using the hashtag #HalloweenWithoutLimits (entries without the hashtag won’t be counted!)

3. Vote for your favorite photo(s) by “liking”, commenting or sharing throughout the month of October! Be sure to share to get votes from family and friends!

4. Wait for the winners to be announced on October 31 to see if you will get bragging rights for next year!

We can’t wait to see your costume creations!

Show Us The Love!

We want to know what you love! Is it a day at the ballpark? Hanging out at the beach with your friends? Being around your dogs? Or does being around your family make your heart swell? UCP is officially launching a “Summer of Love!” We want to show the world that people with disabilities are just as passionate about their pursuits as people without disabilities. Please share a photo on our Facebook or Twitter page that shows us what – or who – you love the most. Whether it’s a snapshot of your sweetheart, or a pic of you engaged in your favorite pastime, we want to see it! There are no rules, just keep it family-friendly. There’s one thread that connects us all—people with disabilities and without, is love. Sharing your photo is easy! Just go to our Facebook page, give us a like and upload your photo on our wall. If Twitter is more your thing, give us a follow on Twitter and tweet us @UCPNational. Whatever way you choose to share, be sure to use the hashtag #SummerofLoveUCP! Follow us on our social media accounts and be sure to keep an eye on our website (UCP.org) to see a gallery of all of the submitted pictures!
