As many of you are aware.. I have been giving away my children’s books for about a year ……and want to try to “KICK” the gifts up a notch.
I have been in contact with certain children’s charities and decided to take a chance and launch a KickStarter Campaign to raise funds to send books to different children’s organizations in different parts of the country.
This is an ALL or nothing campaign –once the campaign has been completed and the requested funds are available I will be sharing blog posts with the names of the organizations who received my gifts.
I fully understand not everyone is able to donate —- if you are —I thank you in advance. If you are not able, would you please be open to sharing this post on Facebook or through another social media account you might have?
My HOPES with launching this campaign is to send a few smiles — as we all love receiving packages in the mail— before and or as close to the holidays as possible.
If this is successful — I plan on launching future campaigns to see how many organizations I can send book gifts packages to. Thank you all for our connection. Many blessings to everyone.
Remember your favorite foods you used to eat as a child? I do …
Nowadays, I eat so many Cheerios, that back in October (2016) I emailed General Mills to thank them for a great product and to let them know how much I liked them. Every morning, I fill a quart size sandwich bag with regular Cheerios and Fruity Cheerios mixed.
Co-workers in the past were so used to seeing my filled baggie of “goodness” sitting on my desk–that I was temporarily nicknamed “Cheerios” in the office.
There are many reasons for liking Cheerios — (No, I am not an employee of General Mills) such as:
They are portable and easy, they are low-fat, they help keep my morning sweet tooth in check, I can mix my own flavors whenever I want a “healthy change”, they taste good, AND just about every day I eat them I am taken back to my sons younger days ….when he eagerly waited in his highchair, big smile on his face, as I walked over with “The Bright Yellow Box”…
They say if you are going to dream—– DREAM BIG— So here is my bucket list post for General Mills and Cheerios. I would be very excited to have one of my children’s books as a give-away tucked inside “The Bright Yellow Box” …. now I realize the chance of this happening is not overly huge — so I will instead enjoy my mornings, munching on my mixed bag of Cheerios with a smile on my face.
