Today was a super ugly day weather wise.
It has been storming all day and we have received so much rain that many of our streets are flooding. Bleh.
But that didn’t stop my daughter and I from going on a mission of cheer.
We headed to our local Walmart to stock up on some Cheerios. We even got enough to share with our friends. 🙂
Since I had posted about the Cheerios sendCheer campaign several days ago I decided that it was important that we participate in it as well.
I was a bit disappointed that there wasn’t more of a display at our Walmart for this promotion, but I was happy that the sendCheer boxes were pretty prominent.
We filled our cart with Cheerios and when I told my daughter what we were going to do with them she got super excited. Even at the age of 4, she understands that her daddy and others like him have a very important job.
This has been something I have always tried to instill in both of my kids. I want them to know that when their daddy misses holidays, their birthdays, or even special events, that it is for good reason and he isn’t alone. There are many mommies and daddies in military who sacrifice in the same way.
Once we finished at the check out and braved the weather back to the car, we headed back home to get our post card on.
The rest of the boxes we delivered to our very good friends to encourage them to send in a card with their kids as well.
And since I consider you all my friends, I really hope that you will head to your local Walmart and look for the specially marked boxes of Cheerios with the sendCheer campaign post card on the front. It really is a great thing to do with your kids as a family. Not only that, but for each card sent General Mills will donate $1 to the USO!
When you’re done and you don’t know what to do with all the Cheerios do what we are doing. This Friday when my husband goes to work he will be taking a plethora of Cheerios Caramel Crisp Bars to deliver around the air base.
So really Cheerios gives you twice the opportunity to bring a little cheer!
