October News

October, Ollie the Octopus, & Pumpkins?

When we think of major holidays in October most people (including us) think of Halloween! We love any chance to dress up, enjoy copious amounts of foods and treats containing pumpkin (or pumpkin spice, which does not come from pumpkins). Fall weather starts to make an appearance, for those of us down south that means breaking out hoodies and getting to enjoy backyard fire pits again! But, did you know that October also brings UN|HUSHED’s birthday?

That’s right! Ollie the Octopus and UN|HUSHED are celebrating our 5th birthday! As a tiny nonprofit organization, making it to 5 years is a big deal. We want to celebrate with you. Join us for our first in person celebration in Austin, TX on October 21st and 22nd. You can find all of the details here.

Donate to UN|HUSHED for our birthday!

For people who can’t join us in person, we’re holding a digital silent auction you can still get in on. We’ll post that link on our social media starting Friday, October, 21st so keep an eye out for that.

Join us in October for:
