7 Trick-or-Treating Safety Tips You Need to Know

Posted in News

Halloween is one of the most exciting holidays of the year for most youngsters—a night of tricks and treats (usually too many treats), costumes and decorations, and the opportunity to stay up a wee bit past bedtime (if they’re lucky). But while Halloween has the potential to be a super fun night for everybody involved, it can also become a nightmare if you’re not careful. Here are some trick-or-treating safety tips to share with your kids before you embark on your night of spooky fun. Trick-or-Treating Safety Tips Planning Your Route Your trick-or-treating adventure can quickly wind up taking you far away from home if you don’t stick to a pre-planned route.

ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also called Lou Gehrig’s disease), is a horribly debilitating neurodegenerative disorder, one that many were unfamiliar with prior to the ALS ice bucket challenge. From children and families to politicians and celebrities, it seemed as though everyone joined forces to participate in a worldwide fundraiser to help find a cure for a terrible disease that takes far too many lives every year. After the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge went viral on social media, The New York Times reported that from July 29 to August 21, the ALS Association received $41.8 million in donations, which is more than twice the amount it received during all of 2013 ($19.4 million). The team at All Island Transportation didn’t want to let the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge pass us by, so we spent two months putting our plans into action to host a big event last...
