During zombie walks, participants dress up in zombie costumes and participate in an event – or just walk – while in zombie character.
The Houston Zombie Walk hosts four major events a year, including pub-crawls, concerts and eating challenges, to raise money for charity.
Tomorrow, at 5:00 PM in Downtown Houston, TX, the Houston Zombie Walk will hold their third annual Halfway to Halloween Pub Crawl; tickets are $10.00 to walk, and one hundred percent of the proceeds will go to benefit the aforementioned charities. Carter’s Bombshells, Vera, and Darren have all teamed together, to make this and all of their future events even bigger by spreading awareness and raising money for these worthy causes.
The idea of a zombie walk and early Halloween crawl is a brilliant addition to fundraising. Pub crawls are always popular, and the zombie genre is on fire right now thanks to shows like The Walking Dead and the continuous cult following for zombie movies like Return of the Living Dead. Not only will tomorrow’s pub crawl benefit many charities, but it will also be entertaining, a bonding experience for the participants, and sure to bring a lot of joy and fun for everyone involved.
Unlike other charities that host one major event a year, the Houston Zombie Walk holds four major events a year and a cornucopia of other festivities year-round. This reporter recently got to speak with Darren Tompkins, along with my co-host Larissa Dali, on the humorous panel show, The Fever. The main takeaway was that Darren is a giver, a true philanthropist, working his day job to support the Houston Zombie Walk and the many causes they sponsor.
For those in the Houston area, come on out tomorrow and wear your favorite Halloween costume or dress like a zombie, enjoy meeting new friends, drink great brew, turn spectators heads, and all in the name of charity.
To show support for charities that care for abused children and animals, do more than verbally support the causes. Get involved in the charity of your choice, by making a donation, volunteer, or participate in an event. Your support makes a difference both by raising money and by raising awareness.
Remember, one person can make a difference, but a team united together with focus on a common cause, can make a huge impact.
