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 I love best about Halloween is all the little things that I 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 Kids.
My heart breaks for many young people and 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. Tragedies like sickness, cancers and other nasty diseases. We aim to do what we can to help kids who are unable to get out and have fun right now, due to these evil health problems, so our mission to raise $5,000 for Fairfax Children's Hospital is on! As you probably know the Fairfax Children’s Hospital does great work in helping kids fight through and survive nasty diseases and cancers, as well as early diagnosis of autism and spinal cord injury. And since Fairfax Children’s Hospital is a nonprofit, they depend on Sponsorships and Donations to continue their leading-edge care and keep costs down for the families of these amazing kids. We remain committed to donating a portion of our income from selling homes to the great work that they do.
The Carlos Pichardo Team at CAP Real Estate toured the facilities of the Fairfax Children Hospital run by Inova's, on Friday, Sept 28.
It was an amazing experience seeing first hand what is being done for the kids at this hospital.
We then provided our check to help with their mission, see our picture below, thanks to our past clients' business since we give part of our earnings to this charity.
For every house we sell this year, we are donating a portion of our income to help kids at this hospital. So, YOUR REFERRALS HELP THE KIDS!
It's easy to refer your friends, neighbors, associates or family members considering making a move. Simply go to capreferrals.com or you can call me direct at 571-748-7360.
