Donate Halloween Candy

If you’re like our family, your kids won’t need all the Halloween candy they’ll receive. You also won’t need the leftovers you have from buying more candy than you’ll be able to pass out.

A great use of that Halloween candy is to remind our troops that they’re not forgotten! You can thank our troops, make someone’s day, share your candy and even get a tax deduction. You only need to bring your candy to your local drop off location.

There are two great organizations collecting candy. Operation Gratitude, which has sent over 1.6 million ...

Written by Brad Aronson 635 Shares

Workplace culture

Seer Interactive has a display of thank you cards in their lobby. Any employee or visitor can take a card and a postage stamp. As founder Wil Reynolds said when he was giving my class a tour of his office, “We want everyone to be able to send a thank you note anytime.

Putting up a rack of cards, doesn’t create a workplace culture of kindness on its own, `but it’s a ...

The cards would hang on a Christmas tree in the mall, and shoppers could take a card to provide gifts for a child. More than 700 kids were served the first year of that program (1979).

When the Whites were transferred to ...

Teal Pumpkin

If you ask me, our family’s biggest risk on Halloween is that our son Jack trips over whatever costume my wife made for him while he runs from house to house.

If you ask Jack, he’d probably say his biggest risk is that we run into friends and stop for a laugh or beer, slowing down his trick or treating.

My wife believes we have two big dangers — that not enough kids come to our door, since I insist on getting a huge supply of candy. And, that I’ll embarrass her with a crazy ...
