Halloween Candy Buyback Program Offering New Incentives to Participants – Registration Now Open
(Middleton, WI) – Dentists across the country are participating in a crusade to end children’s consumption of cavity-inducing treats by buying back their Halloween candy in exchange for incentives such as cavity fighting xylitol candies from Xlear and cash.
“Ditch the sugary candy and get some healthy alternatives, that’s what we’re saying. Visiting your dentist twice a year and brushing daily are great preventative measures, but doing away with excessive sugary sweets altogether would really give your teeth a healthy boost,” says Founder, Dr. Chris Kammer from Lifetime Family Dentistry of Middleton, WI.
Founded in 2005, the Halloween Candy Buy Back Program began as a way to keep excess Halloween candy “off the streets” and help keep kids’ mouths healthier. This year, the program is moving to be a force for good by teaming up with Xlear Inc., the leading manufacturers of xylitol products, and Tess Oral Health, makers of dental, professional, and oral hygiene products. Together they will partner with dental offices nationwide to reach the goal of sending 100,000 toothbrushes overseas as well collect children’s sugary Halloween candy to give the soldiers a holiday away from home. Participating offices are encouraged to set up collection jars at the check-out desk for patients to have the option of donating their brush in the take-home hygiene kit to troops. This simple act of kindness enables children to exchange their Halloween candy and receive a token in return while showing love and support to the men and women in our armed services that are deployed overseas.
In addition to supporting our troops, the Halloween Candy Buyback program hopes to promote a positive dental health message by introducing kids to the natural sugar, xylitol. While regular processed sugar candy is the favorite amongst children, it is not good for their teeth or body. Xylitol is actually beneficial for the body and has tremendous positive impact on dental health. Candy made with xylitol will be included in the product packs for offices to exchange for Halloween candy brought in.
The program has cleared the registry for this year’s buyback. Participating offices will need to register their practices regardless of past buybacks if you would like to appear in the ZIP code search on the website. The program has also implemented a new division, the Platinum Buyback. This status is designed to provide each practice with the supplies needed to host the new buyback program. Sponsors Xlear Inc. and Tess Oral Health have partnered to donate 30 brushes for each paid Platinum Buyback registration, up to 30,000 brushes. For $100 you will receive:
- 50 baggies with $10 worth of xylitol candy, mints, gum, and other products as well as coupons and informational materials.
Your buyback will receive a preferential listing in the ZIP code registry on the website. When your ZIP is searched, your office will show up before non-platinum buybacks on the registry.
Your practice will be entered into the “BUYBACK OF THE YEAR” CONTEST. Only practices in the Platinum program will be considered as they will be educating patients and assisting in the brush donation.
Your practice will be entered into multiple PR opportunities in your local market.
Platinum registration will cost $100 until July 31, 2015. From August 1, 2015 until the registration deadline on October 1, 2015 the cost will be $125. You can register as Platinum here http://www.xlear.com/platinum-halloween-candy-buyback/.
