Moms and Halloween!

It’s creepy and it’s kooky — and it’s Mom’s favorite low-stress holiday! According to mom after mom, those infamous “big name” holidays—you know which ones we mean—are sometimes more headache than highlight. The pressure! The presents! The out-of-town guests or out-of-town travel, the cooking and cleaning, the expense! But Halloween—that’s a different story. More than two-thirds of Mom’s are involved in celebrating with their families.

What we love best about Halloween is all the little things that we see families doing every year, stuff that’s unique to their family, not part of some big commercial idea about what the holiday should be like. Whether it’s just the basics—costume, trick-or-treating, candy eating— now we’ve got a whole series of activities and special events that many kids totally look forward to—from roasting pumpkin seeds to making a scary straw man for the front porch. Things don’t have to be fancy,

elaborate, or expensive, but it’s all uniquely about family traditions and memories that kids will treasure their whole lives. Go on, string fake webs all over your porch, hang ghosts from the trees, cut out scary silhouettes and tape them in the windows, or create a cemetery in your front yard! Halloween’s one time you can really go over the top with your kids. Halloween is one time even the most health-conscious moms can give in to their sweet fangs without any guilt at all.

AND Remember… YOUR Referrals Help the Veterans.

Our hearts break for many families who will not be able to enjoy this fun time of the year out trick or treating or going to Halloween parties.

As you know, tragedy falls on many in this life. We aim to do what we can to help the Veterans who are unable to get out and have fun right now, due to these evil health problems, so our Go Serve Big mission to raise $2,500 for Wounded Warriors, so we are donating a good portion of our income from home sales to them. 

Each month we do our best to remind you that YOUR referrals help the veterans.

As you know Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, incidental to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families. On that date, America watched in horror as approximately 3,000 people died including hundreds of firefighters and rescue workers. Many warriors note a sense of duty to volunteer for the military following these tragic events.

Why We Support The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP)

When we decided to create this program, it did not take us very long to agree on a charity to support. We have a very close family member who bravely fought on the front lines of World War II and was seriously injured; and more recently a close lifelong friend who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom. So this was the natural fit for our organization. This belief was only strengthened when we started to read more about their mission and how they serve their members. WWP serves veterans & service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound incidental to their military service. And with major advancements in battlefield medicine and body armor, more and more service members are surviving severe injuries. In addition to physical wounds, it is estimated as many as 400,000 service members live with the invisible wounds of war including combat related stress, major depression, and PTSD.

Our team rallies around our annual goal of raising money & donating portions of our income to helping this worthy cause. We are committed to providing outstanding results for both buyers & sellers referred to us by our past clients, friends, and others. Since WWP survives on sponsorships & donations from grateful civilians, we are happy to contribute and proud to support the brave men and women who literally put their lives on the line for our freedom.
