968 Pounds of Candy

Thank you to all the schools (see below) who  participated in Kids Wealth International Club’s 1st Annual Halloween Candy Buy Back.  We raised 968 pounds of candy for our dedicated troops.  The Halloween candy will be shipped to Operation Gratitude which then ships care packages, each with an individual soldiers name on it, overseas to our courageous troops serving our country worldwide. Those troops are risking their lives every day. If a little piece of candy can provide a moment of happiness, why not? Halloween candy represents a warm memory of life “back home” and children that care enough to donate candy in support of our troops.

The troops love the candy–for themselves, but also to give out to the children in the communities they patrol. Many Service Members have told us that the children gave them information on wherebombs and bad guys were hidden after receiving our candy. They said: “You are not just putting smiles on our faces; you are saving our lives.”

  • I look forward to your information on Kids and Money

  • Greg Brockhoff:

    Was sitting at home eating Halloween candy and thought about where to donate it. Saw you took candy awhile back and was wondering if you still took candy. If you could let me know if you still do or another group that gives back to our troops I would appreciate it. Thanks, greg
