World Vision #carveaheart campaign gathers momentum in lead-up to Halloween

This Halloween, the international children’s charity World Vision is aiming to “turn a night of fear into a night of hope”.

In order to achieve this, the organisation is encouraging its supporters to carve a heart into a pumpkin and text HEART to 70060 to donate £5.


The aim of the campaign is to underline the fact that this Halloween, and every night, millions of children will be faced with a night of fear.

It isn’t fun or exciting and it isn’t a choice for one night. 31 October is simply another night of facing hardship, loneliness, abuse, hunger or conflict,” the charity said on its website, adding:

World Vision is in the world’s hardest places tonight and every night. Right now, we are comforting children as they wake from nightmares of abuse, helping girls and boys forced into marriage or hard labour and protecting children fleeing bombs and disasters.”


How to show your support

Using the World Vision website, supporters can get involved with the #carveaheart campaign and show their support in a myriad of ways.

These include:

  • Pledging to carve a heart
  • Downloading and sharing #carveaheart images with family and friends (you can download a cover photo, profile photo or shareable photo)
  • Sharing the Carve A Heart message using Facebook, Twitter or email
