Giving Families' Good Mail Challenge for November 2016

This month's challenge was inspired by this...a heaping bowl of sugary yummy-ness that will be consumed by everyone in my family (me included:) unless I get it out of our house ASAP!

Fortunately, some super smart folks came up with the idea of a "Halloween Candy Buy Back" program. Years after it's inception, dentists offices and businesses all over the country are "buying back" children's candy, and then shipping it overseas to service men and women so they can enjoy tasty treats that remind them of home.

Looking for buyback location near you? Here's a search tool to help you find one! 

 Don't have a buyback location near you? Click here to find out how you can ship your candy directly to the organization responsible for this awesome idea! (Candy is accepted this way up until December 11.)

Just a friendly reminder: While we're extremely excited to have families all over the country serving our military men and women in this way, we're even MORE excited parents like you are making intentional efforts to educate, engage and empower your children through our fun and easy monthly challenges! Together, we're building into our youngest generation's character and confidence in ways we can't even begin to imagine, creating ripples of kindness, compassion and generosity that'll benefit our families, and our communities, for years to come.

Thanks for all you do!

Love, The Nowaks ~ Andy, Beth, Harper & Frank
