Crystal Clear: Show Us Your Selfie! (Fall-o-ween Edition)

It's that time of year - we are celebrating all things FALL in Community!

Get ready to show off your Fall-o-ween profile pics and earn beaucoup Community points and a chance to win a Pumpkin Spice whatever on us!

Details inside... 
It's that time of year!

I walked into our local At Home over the weekend and noticed this:


That's right. CHRISTMAS has arrived in stores. A-L-R-E-A-D-Y.

I don't know about you, but I'm not ready to give up on Fall just yet. It's not even Halloween! 

This month, we are focusing on profile pictures in Community. Why have one? Well, it's great to put a face to a name! The Blackbaud Community is a peer to peer Community. We built it for our members to network and learn from each other, so having a picture is a great way to show off your personality.

In true Community style, we are kicking off our Fall-o-ween profile picture extravaganza.

If you change your profile pic to something fall, Halloween costumes, fur babies dressed up, sipping a PSL, knitting a scarf, sitting in front of a cozy fire, raking leaves, or whatever is traditional this time of year where you live, we will award you 500 points!

I'll also pick 5 people at random to send a gift card to.. pumpkin spice (or whatever you enjoy!) on us! 

While you are at it, you can check out this discussion in Just for Fun about how Halloween looks a little different this year. There are some creative suggestions - add yours!

I love this time of year and look forward to seeing everyone's Fall-o-ween pics. Let us know in the comments below that you've updated your pic and if you'd like to tell us the story behind it, please do.

Here are Ray, Elizabeth, and I last year in the office as the Area 51 Raiders. <3

We decided to get a Fall Tree to last through Thanksgiving.  Updated my profile pic to show it off!

Updated my pic to one of my favorite Halloweens & costumes ever- me and my friend Karen as Spy vs. Spy. We won the contest we entered. :) I took a paper tower roll and painted it red, added string so it looked like a large stick of dynomite. Her mask made it hard to see, so I got to goof off and act like I was putting the explosives in her pocket. I messed with the judges, too. That's one reason we won.
My idea for Halloween is treat it parade style. Adults willing to give candy in their 'hood drive around and toss the candy to the kiddos who are safely in their own yards.

My son turned 21 at the beginning of October, and he wanted to celebrate with an early costume party! Our family dressed as characters from Alice in Wonderland. My profile is me as the Red Queen, my son Jackson as the Mad Hatter and my husband Gregg as the Rabbit. Our whole family got really got into it and we had a great time, socially-distanced of course. And no one lost their heads. lol

I updated my profile picture from a family trip to the pumpkin patch, one of my favorite fall traditions.

Before our wedding, my husband and I dressed as a bride and groom for Halloween.  At 6’1” ft tall, we wrapped him in lacy curtains from Goodwill.  We had so much fun that we used this as the photo in our actual wedding programs!
