Scouts can incorporate gold into their pumpkin decorating to raise awareness for pediatric cancer and when you complete the FREE registration at goldpumpkins.org: $1 per pumpkin decorated is donated to children’s cancer from Little Hero Foundation.


Scouts can decorate pumpkins in gold to support and bring attention to pediatric cancer. The exciting part; for every golden pumpkin you decorate, Little Hero Foundation promises to give $1 to research for pediatric cancer, up to $10,000!
