What You "Take Out" Will Give Back: Candy Craze Proceeds Give Hope to Orphans Worldwide

Anyone for take out? In a partnership that is making life sweeter for orphaned children around the world, candy store Candy Craze is donating a portion of each month's Take Out Box sales to Children's Hope humanitarian projects. In their first two months, Candy Craze has already helped 80 children in China and India.

In 2007, founder Tim Bailey contacted Children’s Hope hoping to make a difference. As parents of four internationally adopted children, Tim and wife Connie Bailey have been longtime advocates of adoption and humanitarian aid efforts to improve life for orphans. In 2006, Connie joined Children’s Hope as the Outreach Director for the state of Arkansas.

Tim's 22 bright, colorful and fun-filled venues can be found in malls throughout the mid-south. With all the best candy and confections for sale by weight, shoppers can buy exactly as much or as little as they wish.

Want to know what a little candy can do? Each month, Candy Craze brings new hope to orphans by supporting ongoing projects:

May 2007 - Candy Craze will purchase new clothing and shoes for 75 orphans and street children living in Kakinada, one of the poorest states in India.

April 2007 - the very first gift from Candy Craze will send 5 older orphans in China to the Hand-in-Hand Summer Camp.
