I can't believe Halloween is right around the corner!
I love this time of year because of all the holidays that are so close to each other! I really hate the blood and gore part of Halloween, so I like to focus on the friendlier parts of the holiday: pumpkins, fall weather, hot cocoa, and dressing up!
I love seeing what all the little neighborhood kids choose to dress up as each year, and it's fun to greet them at the door. I also enjoy the idea of doing something just a little bit different than the “average bag of candy” as prize options for my trick-or-treaters. One of my favorite people on Earth hands out donuts and hot cider to all their neighborhood friends each year and it's always a favorite house to stop by!
This year an idea I love is handing out Wendy's frosty coupons from their Halloween coupon books. I love this idea not only because it's fun & unique, but also because it supports a great cause. Funds from the sales of the coupons books will go to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption® to support programs such as Wendy’s Wonderful Kids.
What kid wouldn't be excited about FREE ICE CREAM?? I never knew the story behind the Halloween coupon books until this year! Did you know that Wendy’s® founder, Dave Thomas was adopted and that is a major reason he started this foundation? I love it when people use their life experiences to make a difference in the world! Because he believed that children in foster care “aren’t someone else’s responsibility, they are our responsibility,” his foundation works to find permanent, loving homes for the more than 130,000 children waiting in North America’s foster care system.
