Happy Halloween everyone! I’m so excited to do my neighborhood trick or treating night in about ten years! I don’t even remember the last time I went trick-or-treating in our subdivision, and I have to say, I’m pretty psyched. I understand that not the candy I get is going to be safe, but my mom has a plan. She’s setting up a sort of “store” in which I can trade my unsafe candy for some safe candy. Then we’ll take my unsafe candy and donate it. I am excited at the idea, and I will write all about how it went in a later post, so stay tuned!
My mom is using this really cool program called the Halloween Candy Buyback. It’s where you sell your candy to dentists, or other shop owners who are registered with the program. They pay you one dollar for each pound of candy you bring in, and then donate it to military troops overseas by partnering with the Soldiers’ Angels program. How cool is that?
To find a buyback center near you, all you have to do is go to this link…
…and insert your zip code into the search tool and it will find people near you who have registered with the program who will buy your candy back. I think it’s a super cool program, not only for allergy kids like me, but also for those soldiers. What a great way to get rid of unsafe candy!
If you know of any other programs like this, feel free to comment. You might be featured in my next post.
Until next time!
