Halloween 2015 here we come!
Every year the kids (and lets be honest here, some adults) spend a lot of their free time dreaming up the coolest costume ever! What a thrill it is to dress up and do the annual trick or treating with your family and friends. The community loves handing out treats to the super scary witch or coolest Mario or the latest super hero.
If you’re anything like me…. all the candy that the kids come home with can be a bit overwhelming. I have 4 children and we get quite the haul. If I’m honest here, my first thought is “I hope there is Reese’s peanut butter cups in there…” hahaha and then, my first RATIONAL thought is,… “I don’t want my kids eating all THAT candy!”
We’ve come up to a solution to that problem….. Candy Buy Back!
What’s that you say? Candy buy back is when you bring your kids WITH THEIR CANDY to our office on Monday November 4th between 9:00-4:30pm and we buy the candy from your scary witch, Mario.. or super hero (no costumes needed this time though) 😉 We will pay them $1.00 for EVERY pound they bring, up to $10.00! We will take the giant bin of candy that we buy from the kids and donate it to the local firefighters! And, just to sweeten the deal, we are donating $1.00 for every $1.00 spent to buy back candy, to a local charity in Battle Ground that offers housing and services for Homeless Women who are pregnant or have children. The name of the charity is Moms Place Maternity, you should look them up on Facebook 😉
1st Annual Candy Buy Back and it’s gonna be spooky… err scary…. err awesome!
….. now I need to find a costume 😉
