For the second year running, we asked our team to forego the typical, boring Halloween costumes and dress up as some of their favorite nonprofit organizations.
Here are some great examples you can still throw together in time for trick-or-treating.

Harry Potter Alliance
The Harry Potter Alliance harnesses the "power" of the millions of HP fans around the world to promote equality, human rights, and literacy. The organization operates under a credo offered by the book series' author, J.K. Rowling: “We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.”
