    Over the past years I have always been a blue M&M with a blue afro wig for Trick-or-Treating. My costume is recognized by the young and the more mature as we go from house to house. Each year I Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, and the same neighbors that I approach year after year remember my costume and thank me for giving my time to a worth cause. We have been blessed to exceed donations each year. It warms my heart!
