Blast From the Past - "Cheerios® Cheer Giveaway" (ended)

Due to a technical issue, earlier posts on this blog were deleted. These posts are being re-shared with readers on a daily basis.  This blog post was originally published on November 19, 2011

We all need pick me ups.  It is easy to get worn down from day to day responsibilities and pressures.  For the millions of military families manning the fort at home while their loved ones are away serving, a gesture of Cheer is especially welcome. 

When our troops are called to serve, their families are impacted as well.  They must rise to meet the challenges of service as well.  To thank these families, Cheerios® and the USO have partnered in a postcard campaign that spreads Cheer directly to these honorable military families and supports USO programs.

Here´s how it works: Now through November, 2011 at your local grocer, specially-marked boxes of Cheerios cereal will feature Cheer postcards on the front of the box. Consumers can simply cut out the postcard from the Cheerios logo, write a message of thanks on the back, add a stamp and mail the pre-addressed card to the USO. The USO will deliver the Cheer card to military families across the country. For each postcard received through November 2012, Cheerios will make a $1 donation to the USO to help fund programs that support military families. 

To kick off the campaign, Cheerios has already donated $150,000 to the USO and will donate up to an additional $100,000 based upon the number of postcards received from specially marked boxes now through November 30th, 2012. Sending a "Cheer" postcard is a simple way to say thanks and lift the spirits of our country´s military families. So, take a moment out of your day to spread some Cheer and send a message of thanks!

Cherrios wants to spread the word about this program. As a result I will be hosting a fun giveaway to promote Cherrios cheer.
