2014 Halloween Candy for the Troops!

My hopes were to keep this blog all about books but this post I couldn’t pass up to re-blog and comment.

I don’t know about you but this year I have a TON of Halloween candy left over.   Was it because it was Friday?  Parties?  I can’t say why we had so few trick-or-treaters.  Why not do something good with it, instead of eating it.  Send it to our troops who are fighting for our freedom far away from home.  Make them smile.  Give them something sweet.  There are other ways to support with letters, cards, etc so read the post and see what you can do.  I myself am going to sort my candy and get it ready to send over.  I hope you do too!

  1. I was just wondering what to do with all our candy, we can’t possibly eat it all! Stopping by from #NaBloPoMo and a fellow mama who likes to read 🙂
