Consider Donating Left Over Halloween Candy

Thursday, November 01, 2012

Now that it's the day after Halloween, I know many of my fellow Spark Buddies are worried about those fun sized left overs sitting in that bowl by the door. I know some may tell you to toss it all out so that you don't feel tempted. That would be a waste of food. I have a much better solution, consider donating all the left over Halloween candy to your local food pantry.

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, I've been thinking about all those who've been effected. Well, I'll bet there were many families who weren't able to celebrate Halloween. Why not donate the left overs ? You've enjoyed your Halloween, now maybe another family will too.

The fact is, there are lots of families who were having financial problems before the hurricane hit. Food pantries are always looking for donations and this would be a great opportunity to help them out. Okay, some might say that we should only donate "healthy" options, but who says a family can't have a treat now and then ?

So, for those of my Spark buddies who are worried about that Halloween candy calling their name, why not donate it ? This way, you get it out of the house and someone else gets to enjoy the treats.
