'WEEN DREAM is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit that gives free Halloween costumes to children in need across America.

'WEEN DREAM gives costumes to kids from all over America who are faced with unique challenges, including those with special needs, physical and/or mental disabilities, homeless children, kids living in poverty or at shelters, children with serious medical issues, kids in the foster care system, and kids who have experienced a recent trauma or natural disaster.

Who does 'WEEN DREAM help?

'WEEN DREAM accepts applications for free costumes from families in need anywhere in America. Through used and new costume donations and the Pumpkin Patch, 'WEEN DREAM provides costumes to as many applicants as possible each Halloween.

Examples of children "in need" include those living in poverty, children with serious medical issues, children with special needs, children with mental and/or physical disabilities, and children who have recently experienced a traumatic event (such as a natural disaster).

For Halloween 2015, 'WEEN DREAM gave costumes to approximately 1,200 children in 24 states, which is more than double what we did in 2014. We hope to continue growing this number every year.


I don't have any used costumes, how else can I help?


Lots of ways! Most importantly, 'WEEN DREAM relies on public donations to pay for our rental space, insurance, costume supplies, website, and costumes themselves. We have no paid employees, so your donation goes entirely to 'WEEN DREAM operations.

You can also like/follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, volunteer your office as a costume drop location, pick a ‘WEENSTER from our Pumpkin Patch and sponsor his or her costume, display ‘WEEN DREAM brochures at your office during October, or help collect or distribute costumes.

One thing you can do right now: please invite your friends to "like" our Facebook page so we can help spread the word about costume donation!


Louisiana Flood Victims Only

As a Louisiana-based nonprofit, the members and volunteers of 'WEEN DREAM are especially saddened by the recent deadly flooding in our state. It has always been our policy to consider late requests for costumes from anyone affected by any natural disaster or other unforeseeable event. However, due to the large number of applications we expect to receive due to the flooding disaster, we have left a special flood-victim application posted on our website to accommodate the large number of applicants. To access the special flood application, click here.

We will continue to accept applicants on a rolling basis for as long as possible, depending on our ability to provide costumes for applicants. Applications are reviewed, and costumes matched to applicants, in the order they are received.

Please note that. Although we wish we could provide costumes for all applicants, we are limited by what is donated to us each year. Accordingly, no applicant is ever guaranteed acceptance into the program, and even those who are accepted are never guaranteed to receive a costume or any particular costume. Thanks for understanding!
Happy Halloween :D Follow us at Twitter @halloweenjoke or go to http://Halloweenjokes.com
