Boxes Of Cheer {sendCheer}

Last week I told you about Cheerios wonderful sendCheer campaign and this week I get to share with you how I sent cheer! I had so much fun with it!

Here are some pictures from my shopping experience and what I did with the boxes of Cheerios:

***

First, I headed to Walmart to buy my Cheerios. It was a busy day at the store because everyone was getting their items for Thanksgiving.

***

I headed to the cereal aisle. I saw many different boxes of Cheerios but I was looking for specially marked ones.

***

These are the boxes I was looking for. They were mixed in with the regular boxes of Cheerios.

***

I bought a bunch of boxes and put them in my cart. I also got some other items that were on my grocery list.

***

Once home I took the cereal out of the box, cut the postcard out of the box, and then had my three year old color the postcard.

***

Once the postcard was done I had to figure out what to do with the other boxes I had bought. I decided to wrap them with wrapping paper.

***

After the boxes were wrapped I put notes on them.

***

It is so fun to spread Cheer so I would have my friends help me spread the cheer.

Each box has a note on them that says:

Happy Holidays!

Here is a box of CHEER for you!

I’ve dropped off this box in hopes that you will help me thank our military.

Inside the box you will find directions on how you can help me spread CHEER this season.

I hope you will join me in thanking those that serve us every day

and I hope your family enjoys eating your box of CHEERios!

***

I’m going to be putting the wrapped boxes of Cheerios on porches and watch the CHEER spread!

Won’t you join me?

You can find specially marked boxes of Cheerios at Walmart.

Send Cheer To Military Families With Cheerios {sendCheer}

I am honored to share information about the Cheerios sendCheer campaign with you all! I often write about how you can give a lot without spending a lot and this campaign from Cheerios and the USO is a perfect example of how you can do that. Specially marked boxes of Cheerios can be found in Walmarts across the country with postcards on the inside of the boxes. Once cut out, you can write a special note on the pre-addressed postcard and send it out. The USO will then send it to a military family. In addition to that, $1 from each card received will be donated by Cheerios to the USO. For the price of a stamp and a box of cereal you can provide encouragement, words of thanks, support, and help fund programs to support military families. It may not seem like much to you but I have friends in the military and friends with spouses and family members in the military and I know that support from others is so important to them!

As with anything, I think it’s important to get the whole family involved in giving to others. In the past I have taken the children shopping for supplies to include in care packages to send out to those in the military. We have also baked cookies together to include in the packages. My children are 2 and 3 so I don’t think they understand what we are doing yet but my hope is that they will grow up and giving will just be something that they do without thinking.

We will be shopping for the specially marked boxes of Cheerios this weekend and I will share next week about what we found and what my family did to spread love and celebrate ThanksGIVING :)

I’d love to hear what you do to support the military.
