Sending Smiles with Cheerios Cheer Plus Giveaway



These days,I think everyone knows someone serving in the military.I think everyone has to respect the job they do even if you wish there wasn't a need for it.I think many times we don't remember that while our troops are off putting their lives on the line,their families are at home doing what they have to do,every day,wearing a brave face over their worried hearts.Cheerios and the USO have come up with a cute and easy way for us to honor them.

Through the end of November,the specially marked boxes of Cheerios will feature a cheer postcard on the front.Simply cute out the postcard,write a message of thanks on the back,add a stamp and mail the pre-addressed postcard to the USO,who will deliver them to military families all over the country.Every time you do this simple act,Cheerios will donate $1 to the USO for programs that support military families.We all know how little they get paid to do the job they do,so what a great way this is for us all to give back! We are mailing ours and I hope you do too!

Thanks to Cheerios and My Blog Spark,I was sent a prize pack to help them spread the word.I received the box of Cheerios with postcard,Cheerios bowl and spoon and cereal dispenser shown above.This was a treat for the whole family.The kids love Cheerios and enjoyed sending the postcard.I love the dispenser which makes school mornings a little less hectic.I twist it 3 times which gives the perfect amount for morning time here.My husband claimed the bowl and spoon the minute I opened it.It is a nice, heavy,I think ceramic bowl which was nice.I hate those flimsy plastic bowls.My husband used it for cereal and chili and loves it.

One of you will receive the same products I did thanks to the great sponsors!

I have a very good friend who is Special Forces. it's hard to have him gone all the time, but I know he's doing something that he loves (even if he can't talk about it! hush hush!)
