I’m excited to announce that I, along with the rest of the Can Man Dan Foundation have partnered with Halloween Alley to ensure that hundreds of low-income children in Edmonton have the ability and the support they need to celebrate Halloween/Fall Festival this year! Let’s face it, the Halloween season is A TON OF FUN for children of all ages, but it is an expensive time of year for families, especially if you are low-income or on a limited budget. That’s why we’re raising funds to supply hundreds of low-income children with BRAND NEW costumes and help build their confidence with all the latest attires — and we need your help! Please help us ensure that no child is left out of the fun or embarrassed that they can’t participate in the community festivities.
We’re excited to announce that we have made donating easier than ever before!

The Can Man Dan Foundation and Halloween Alley agree that every child, regardless of social or financial status, should have the privilege and opportunity to partake in all of the “spooky” festivities and community fun! Which is why we are teaming up to ensure that no child is left out or embarrassed that they can’t participate in community activities with their friends and family.
“Oh boy, I know the feeling all too well. We were poor growing up, and when Halloween came around it was either pay for food/bills, or celebrate Halloween. We went with the food and bills. To this day, I still remember not being able to go out with my friends or being too embarrassed to tell them that we couldn’t afford costumes that year. I don’t wish that feeling on any one, let alone a child! Which is why I’m excited to launch this program with Halloween Alley” – Can Man Dan
We are looking to raise $10 000 to supply hundreds of local, low-income children with brand new costumes for the 2019 Halloween/Fall Festival season! Every donation, big or small, makes a difference and we are incredibly grateful for any and all support! Thank you for your help and your continued support!
