I received an email last week from HealthPartners, a Minnesota based not-for-profit HMO. Employees from the HealthPartners Dental Clinics are going to hand out Silly Bandz to kids on Halloween as an alternative to candy. They also have a sheet on their site with tips for a healthy (and still fun) Halloween.
How Cool Is That?
Personally my girls prefer to get “stuff” on Halloween. Stickers, pencils, and small toys are their favorite. There is this one house in our hood that gives away candy, toys, cocoa, pens, pencils, stickers and more. They LOVE Halloween, but they also don’t have kids so this is their one shot at making kids happy.
Yes, my girls do like getting the candy, but I don’t let them eat all of the candy they receive. They get 5 pieces to keep and eat one per day for a week. The rest gets thrown away. And yes, my girls still love me even though this is the rule.
I am also of the generation that remembers candy being poisoned, so we have 2 bags. 1 bag is from the people we know and the other bag is from the houses we go to, but don’t know the homeowners.
I will openly admit that if a house we don’t know gives out a Mounds Bar, you can bet I am going to take that risk of getting sick and dying. Just sayin’.
Now, the rep from HealthPartners asked if she could send me some Silly Bandz for my girls or if I wanted to give them away on my blog.
What do you think I chose to do?
I am totally going to give them away to you guys!
What do you have to do to enter to win the Silly Bandz?
Ok, well, you have to leave me a comment, but that is all you have to do!
This giveaway is open to all of my CURRENT Followers and Subscribers as a way for me to say Thank You! It will close tonight at 11:59 PM CST., so that I can get them in the mail to you in time for Halloween.
They have a deal on ORANGE roses with a FREE vase and FREE chocolates. I have never received orange roses before, but I think that would be a very cool and thoughtful gift (hint, hint Honey) Click on the following link to redeem their special offer:
I, also, have one very important question that I would love an answer to, so please help me:
What is the allure of Silly Bandz??? Emily doesn’t get it. I don’t get it. Emily’s friends are really into them, but when I ask her friends why they like them, all I get is that they are “cool.”
