One thing I love about the holidays is teaching my boys how to give back, not just to their community but to causes that are important to them. My youngest who has special needs understands this very well, and he loves being a part of campaigns that help others in need, especially during the holidays when the spirit of being kind is something we can all lose sight in.
Kellogg’s Rice Krispies is one such campaign my son loves to participate in. The idea of creating toy-shaped Rice Krispies treats so that a child can have a special gift for Christmas always makes him smile. He shares it with all his friends, telling them how they can upload their own creations at TreatsforToys and share their photographs online using the same hashtag #TreatsforToys
For every photo submitted, Kellogg’s will donate $20 to the Salvation Army to help with the purchase of a toy for a Canadian child for Christmas. This is important to our family because for many years my son was one such child being hubby and I are on a disability. So programs like this ensured he got a special toy and that there wasn’t a blank spot under the Christmas tree as there is for so many other boys and girls.
Last year my son made a Transformer. The year before it was a car. I’m curious to see what he will be making this year. He’s very creative and puts his heart and soul into it. You can make as many toy treats as you want and upload them to share to help as many kids as you can this Christmas get something special wrapped just for them.
