And don’t forget, next Thursday (10/16) from 1-2 PM we will be having a Twitter Party with UNICEF and HSN! There will be some pretty amazing prizes – over $300 worth! Be sure to RSVP here!

Trick or Treaters


Amanda: I go for the good stuff! But honestly, it’s probably more for selfish reasons than anything. I buy lots of candy “just in case” which really means so when we don’t use it all I can claim it. I’m a big fan of Kit Kats, Twix and Milky Way. YUM!! 🙂 – Amanda is the mom to Joshua and owns It’s a Fabulous Life. If you are looking for a one stop place for all things mom, ItÂ’s a Fabulous Life is it! Full of recipes, fashion, DIY projects, recipes and parenting articles itÂ’s the place for all of MomÂ’s favorites to come together! Follow her on Twitter here!


Jenni: We usually go trick or treating and don’t pass out candy but the times we do, I usually pass out the good stuff. The Reese’s, and other yummy candy bars because those are my faves. Keeping my hands out of the candy bowl is a challenge. – Jenni is the mom of one and the author of Sweet Pennies From Heaven. A hearth and home website, Sweet Pennies From Heaven focuses on recipes, crafts and creating a comfortable home. Follow her on Twitter here!
Lindsay: We give out candy, and sadly it’s usually candy that I like so I munch on it before Halloween…which usually means I need to go buy another bag before the trick-or-treaters get here. You’d think I’d learn my lesson, but apparently not. Those Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups just cannot be denied! – Lindsay is the mom of 2 and author of See Mom Click. She shares great deals, Disney happenings and recipes. You can follow her on Twitter here!
Stephanie: When I was a kid it was a big deal to get mini chocolate bars for trick or treat so that’s what I give out. I may or may not have to sample a few of them. – Stephanie is the mom to Sam and the author of Spaceships and Laser Beams. If you ever need party ideas her site is the place to visit! Specializing in all things boy, it’s full of inspiration! Follow her on Twitter here!
Did you know that while your child is out collecting candy this year that they can be helping to save the lives of children around the world? Trick or Treat for UNICEF started in 1950 as a way for kids to help kids. Since then, children have taken UNICEF collection boxes with them trick or treating collecting change for this amazing cause! Since 1950 children have raised over $170 million dollars while trick or treating! This year UNICEF has made fundraising even easier! In addition to taking the iconic boxes with you while trick or treating you also have the option of creating an online fundraising page. In just a few seconds, you can set up a Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF fundraising page to share with friends and family. The money you raise will help save and protect children by providing clean water, nutritious food, lifesaving vaccines and more. Because some kids need more than candy.
