Now through the end of November, Cheerios and the USO are spreading cheer to military families with a postcard campaign. At your local grocer, you may see boxes of Cheerios with Cheer postcards on the front of the box. All you have to do is cut out the postcard from the Cheerios logo, add a stamp and mail the pre-addressed card to the USO. The USO will deliver the Cheer card to a military family across the country. For every card received, Cheerios will donate $1 to the USO to support military families. Cheerios has already donated $150,000 to the USO and will donate up to an additional $100,000 based on the number of postcards they receive now through November 30, 2012.
Being a military family, I am thankful for any business that helps to support military families. The constant deployments of one or both parents is very hard on the family and especially the children. I admire and applaud Cheerios for this campaign and I hope you can purchase at least one box of Cheerios and send the Cheer card to the USO to help further support the initiatives of the USO.
As part of this campaign to get the word out, I was able to participate and review this great prize pack from Cheerios. It include this big Cheerios bowl, Cheerios spoon, a box of Cheerios and a nice cereal dispenser. Of course, my girls were very excited about the chance to use the dispenser as who doesn't want to use something cool? I will admit that they do love Cheerios but they were insistent on putting another cereal in the dispenser in in spite of my objections.
I could take a picture to show the numerous boxes of Cheerios varieties in my pantry but it's a mess and I'm not! It's a great prize pack for a great campaign to help our military families. Military families struggle to make ends meet especially during times of deployments. The USO has been around for a long time serving both the members of the military and their families so any money they can receive to help keep the programs going, is crucial to the survival.
One winner will receive the same prize pack:
- 1 Cheerios Cereal Bowl
- 1 Cheerios Cereal Spoon
- 1 Cereal Dispenser
- 1 "Cheer" Box of Cheerios
