If you’re like me, then it’s the day after Halloween and you’re sitting on half a truck-load of candy you were convinced the neighborhood kids would come collect. Now what? One thing is for sure, leaving it in the bowl on the coffee table is a guaranteed way to bust your diet wide open. So, instead of testing your will-power every time you walk through the living room, why not donate that left-over candy? Save yourself the temptation and do something good in the process.
From their website: The Halloween Candy Buyback buys candy from children after Halloween. We get candy off of the streets and send it in care packages to troops overseas. The troops get a brightened day and often share the candy with locals in a show of trust, sometimes acquiring key intel.
