Happy Halloween! October 31st is upon us again; which means kids will be on sugar highs for the next seventy two hours. Curb that sugar rush this year and ask the kids if they want to share it with a hero.
Operation Gratitude is a program that sends care packages to US troops stationed around the world. During Halloween, Operation Gratitude expands their care packages to include all kinds of Halloween candy. The only Operation Gratitude rule: no pixie sticks. They can tear open easily and cause a sticky mess during shipping.
Halloween Candy Buyback is a national program that shows you dentists in your area that will buyback your candy! Prices may vary; however the going rate for Halloween candy buyback has typically been around one dollar a pound (up to five pounds). Call the closest participating Halloween Candy Buyback dentist to find out their specific information.
Kids get excited with cold hard cash, so it may not be as hard as you think to get them to part with their candy for Operation Gratitude or Halloween Candy Buyback . You can also donate the leftover candy you had for trick or treaters.
Operation Gratitude and Halloween buyback are two very popular ways to help recycle all that candy for a good cause. While kids love their Halloween candy, they also have kind hearts and would probably be more willing than you think to part ways with some of their sugar stash.
Above all else: be safe, be careful and have fun. Happy Halloween!
