It is almost certain you saw kids out on the street wearing Ebola prevention gear this Halloween. They got decked out in full hazmat outfits that came close to looking real. The More Than A Costume group wants to make a suggestion to all of those families that dressed their kids up as doctors, nurses, or hazmat attired rescuers. How would you feel about ordering the real thing? No, not for your kids or even yourself. They are giving all of us a chance to spend less than the cost of a cheap Halloween mask to help the doctors, nurses, and caregivers that are battling Ebola with the gear they really need.
For a $1 you provide a pair of gloves to keep them safe, for $5 a mask, or $10 a set of goggles. You probably enjoyed watching all the cleverly dressed kids this Halloween, but maybe it is time to give all of those people who dress up in extreme costumes everyday a little treat, too.
