Halloween brings the excitement of costumes, trick-or-treating, haunted houses, and other scary things. And what about the pounds and pounds of candy our kids collect? Your Atlanta Dental Spa Team believes that can be one of the scariest things of all! On average, every American eats 24 pounds of candy per year. A lot of that candy gets consumed on and right after Halloween.
That’s why, once again, we are buying the candy back from your kids! That’s right, we will pay a cash reward of $1 per pound* in an effort to keep pounds of candy out of kids mouths and bodies. We’re not just preventing cavities, either. With childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes on the rise, we’re leading the way as health and wellness advocates for all of our patients and their families.
Once we buy back all that candy, we partner with Operation Gratitude, so the candy gets divided into small care packages that are sent to our troops serving overseas. The troops are so appreciative they often write us letters thanking us for remembering them. Many of these troops are serving in places where poverty is rampant and local children have very little. These troops enjoy sharing the candy with these grateful children. And the kids react as though it’s the biggest gift in the world. Imagine that! Each piece of your candy could brighten the day (the year!) of a less fortunate child somewhere out there in the world.
