This Halloween after you have gone trick or treating, go through your loot and share! Bring some of your candy to school to share with children in Third World Countries.
Dr. Andrew Simone, founder of Canadian Food for Children Foundation, collects candy and ships it abroad. The candy gets shipped directly to agencies in Central America who work with children in need. Dr. Simone explains that for these malnourished, and often dehydrated youngsters, the sugar stimulates their appetites, as starving children are often unable to eat. He also reminds us that most of these children have never tasted candy, and that we can bring a moment of joy to another child’s life through our donations.
What a great way to share some of the pounds of excess candy in our homes after Halloween!
