Last week, Peace Corps Headquarters celebrated Halloween with a giving spirit, participating in activities to raise money for the Combine Federal Campaign (CFC). Part of the actives included a Peeps Corps contest. Here are some highlights from the amazing entries!
"Rural villagers in Tanzania had never heard of the American holiday called Halloween. Also they had never seen this type of pumpkin before. I gave my friend some seeds and after some weeks, she proudly brought a home grown pumpkin to my house. I showed her how we carve jack-o-lanterns, roast the seeds, and bake pumpkin bread. She kept a few of the seeds to share with others and to plant again the following year; and for many years after that." - Peace Corps Environment Volunteer Heath Roy
