After learning all the details of the Cheerios sendCheer campaign, I knew we would be participating. We headed out to our local Walmart to try and find them. Our first stop was in the cereal aisle. The specially marked Cheerios boxes were right on the bottom shelf. They were at a great price also, $3.00. Think about that for a moment. By spending $3.00 on a great big box of Cheerios, and sending in the postcard, Cheerios will donate $1 to the USO! That is awesome!
I asked for the kids help. I wanted to know what we should write to another military family. I think we came up with exactly how we feel, and we let Faith choose some decorations.
If you missed my first post and are wondering what this is all about, here is the quick rundown:
This fall, Cheerios® and the USO are partnering to send “Cheer” to military families to thank and encourage them for their commitment to our country. Specially marked boxes of Cheerios cereal will feature “Cheer” postcards, which can be cut out and mailed to military families through a partnership with the USO. Even more, for each postcard received, Cheerios will donate $1 to the USO to help support programs for military families. Cheerios has already donated $150,000 and will donate up to an additional $100,000 based upon the number of postcards received by November 30, 2012.
I had planned on coming up with a fun recipe to make with the Cheerios. Maybe cookies? Granola? Energy bars?
Cheerios don’t last long in our house. But usually they make it longer than two days. Sheesh. Do your kids do this?
