We are privileged as health care providers to have the opportunity to spend as much quality time as we do with this remarkable and talented age group.
Our organization's goal is simple: We are dedicated to provide constant and continual community give-back events, contests, and awards that we hope will serve as an impetus to the youth in our communities to reach their greatest potentials and encourage them to donate some of their time and energies to make our communities better and in turn act as role models and mentors to other youth to do the same.
All community events, prizes, fundraising, and event costs will be donated by Dr. Aly Kanani, a local orthodontist in Surrey / North Delta, Langley, and the Vancouver-area
SurreyCandyBuyBack.com is the official Surrey and North Delta Halloween Candy Buy Back Community Website and belongs to the larger charity arm of Surrey orthodontist Dr. Aly Kanani. Dr. Kanani's charity arm website can be found at DrKananiGivesBack.com. With the rise in obesity and diabetes among youth, the candy indulged during Halloween times is often excessive and largely unnecessary.
In order to minimize the negative impact on the diet and healthy lifestyles we are trying our local Surrey and Delta youth to aspire towards, our organization will buy back for $1.00 per pound (10 pound limit per child) of their Halloween Candy. We are not implying that all candy is bad but it should be in moderation, and children should brush afterwards accordingly.
