The Halloween Candy Buyback buys candy from children after Halloween. We get candy off of the streets and send it in care packages to troops overseas. The troops get a brightened day and often share the candy with locals in a show of trust, sometimes acquiring key intel.

100,000 Toothbrush Donation Challenge!

Dr. Kammer, the Buyback's founder, has always dreamt of donating 100,000 toothbrushes to troops overseas; on top of the the tons of candy that we send. We asked our participants for suggestions to help collect brushes and we received some great ideas!

In Dr. Kammer's own practice, we've set up a collection jar at the check-out desk. Considering that most people have a favorite toothbrush or an electric brush at home, we're asking if they'd like to donate the brush in their take-home hygiene kit to the troops. We've been collecting for almost a month and have close to 50 brushes. Imagine if 500 offices followed this trend! We'll be at 100,000 in no time!

You can package your brushes and send them to Operation Gratitude when you send the candy in November. They'll be included in the care packages sent overseas! This easy-to-implement collection method needs to be used nationwide. Let's accomplish the 100,000 brush goal!!!

Our sponsors Xlear Inc. and Tess Oral Health have partnered to donate brushes as well, for every Platinum Buyback signup. Learn more about the Platinum program here
