Good News: “House of 1,000 Pumpkins”

Here’s a Halloween themed Good News Story . . . Tim Perry is using his annual Halloween display to raise money for the American Cancer Society again this year. He calls it “House of 1,000 Pumpkins”, and he takes fake “craft” pumpkins and carves celebrities’ faces into them (and yes, he really does have that many). He’s been doing it for over a decade, and adds more pumpkins each year, but it’s only the third year it’s been a fundraiser. A few years ago, his wife got diagnosed with cancer, so that’s when he decided to start raising money for cancer research. But the best news is he says she’s doing okay now, and “hopefully the cancer is gone.” If you can’t make it to Cranston, Rhode Island to see it in person, you can check out his “House of 1,000 Pumpkins” on Facebook. He’s also doing an online fundraiser through Facebook this year, so anyone can donate. (click HERE for the link to his Facebook page)
