Kinder® joins RE/MAX Canada to support Accessible Trick Or Treating in 2021; Treat Accessibly movement now in its fourth year
Did you know that more than 400,000 Canadian kids live with accessibility issues? At this time of year, the impacts are particularly felt on Halloween, when something as simple as walking up to a neighbour’s front door for trick-or-treating can be a challenge due to staircases, steep or long driveways, narrow pathways, strobe lights or loud noises, and crowded front entrances. Now in its fourth year, Treat Accessibly is a movement that aims to drive household awareness of accessibility issues, and encourages small changes that will make a big difference to trick-or-treaters of all abilities.
Accessible Trick Or Treating in 2021
Becoming a supporter of Accessible Trick Or Treating in 2021 is simple. You can start by picking up your free, orange Treat Accessibly lawn sign, which is available exclusively from your local RE/MAX office or agent. Then, post the sign on your front lawn a couple of weeks before Halloween, to let people know that you’ll be handing out treats from an accessible spot on the property, such as the foot of the driveway or the sidewalk.
When a homeowner puts the Accessible Trick or Treating® sign on their lawn, they are making a commitment to make their property accessible to everybody on Halloween.
Treat Accessibly Halloween Village
Treat Accessibly hosted the very first Treat Accessibly Village on October 2, in Toronto’s Weston Village, which saw 30 homeowners create a super Halloween trick-or-treating experience curb-side to celebrate accessible trick or treating. The guests of honour were the children of Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital.
More than 40,000 homeowners across Canada have picked-up a Treat Accessibly sign in the last two years, and the program continues to grow each year. To learn more, visit www.treataccessibly.com
