When I was a kid, we carried our Halloween treats in pillow cases because we were greedy little goblins who didn’t mind having candy-corn stuck in our hair later on. But again, my kids get to have all the fun with none of the hideous polyester paisley.
UNICEF, which really is synonymous with Halloween for plenty of us, is now making it both cute and easy to gorge on sugar whiling help kids in need.
When you buy the adorable cotton burlap FEED trick-or-treat bag
bag from HSN, $3.50 goes directly to UNICEF and provides an entire
year’s worth of micronutrient powder to a child in the developing world.
Honestly, I can’t buy a bottle of Trader Joe’s vitamins for that price,
so I’m impressed with the amount of good you can do with one purchase. I
also love the opportunity to discuss with my four-year-old how
fortunate we are and how we can help others.
But the FEED bag
helps us, too. It’s sturdy and reusable year-round for groceries or
trips to the library. And it’s fitted with reflective webbing to keep
kids visible when ghosts and witches take to the streets. And, gosh darn
it, it’s really freakin’ cute.
No tricks here– as UNICEF says, it’s a treat just knowing that you’ve helped a child in need.~Delilah
