Okay, perhaps I’m completely behind and everyone else is already doing this, but I just heard about a really cool idea for Halloween.
One of our professors and I were talking and she said
“oh and man those kids collecting for charities really cleaned me out this year!”
I stood there and stared at her blankly…….
Apparently bunches of kids in her neighborhood collect for charity instead of collecting candy!
they knock on her door and yell “Trick or treat!” and then when she opens the door to give them the traditional candy they say “instead of candy, could you give us a canned good for the food bank?”
Apparently it is a huge thing in her neighborhood. To the point where she has started buying extra canned goods just before Halloween so she is prepared for the onslaught.
What if we made it a huge trend all over the place? Talk about a way to re-claim Halloween for Jesus!
