In an interview with Y-94 Radio in Fargo, she explained her reasoning behind her letters.

"I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight," she said. "I think it's just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just 'cause all the other kids are doing it."
