  3. Place the sign(s) in the yard of a friend, family member, or neighbor, leave some of your favorite spooky treats at their door, ring the doorbell, and watch as your BOO! brings a smile to someone’s face.

  4. Keep the BOO going! Once you’ve purchased and placed your sign, download and print the poster to the right to tell you friends how they can support East Tennessee Children’s Hospital.

That's all you have to do to start spreading the Halloween Cheer! If you've been BOO-ed, don't forget to pay it forward and keep the BOO's going.


Make it a BOO! party
