A huge THANK YOU to all of your creative contributions for the Treats For Toys program! Your creative toy-shaped treats contributed to a total of $40,000 to help children in need this holiday season. That means you’ve helped donate $110,000 in the last 3 years! Way to go!
Treats For Toys 2015 Program:
The Treats For Toys program invited families to make toy-shaped Rice Krispies treats as a creative family donation idea. For every toy-shaped treat uploaded to the Treats For Toys website or shared on social media using the #TreatsForToys hashtag, Kellogg donated $20 to the Salvation Army to purchase toys for children in need this holiday season.
There were some really creative ideas shared this year! I loved browsing your ideas on social media & seeing all those proud smiles from children showcasing their creations. My son and I have been participating for a couple of years now and we always have a lot of fun with it. It’s a great activity for kids of all ages & it’s a fun way to teach your children about giving back to others in need.
This program has ended for the year but you can keep creating treats in the kitchen for other donations like:
- contact your local animal shelter or care home to see if you can donate baking to one of their bake sales
- bake cookies as a Thank You for someone who has done something special for you
- for older children, see if the food bank or local shelter needs help in the kitchen
- clean out your cupboards and donate some of your tasty non-perishable food items to your local food bank
- start planning a lemonade stand for the spring
From Kellogg’s Rice Krispies and all of us working on the Treats For Toys program – THANK YOU for your help in making the holiday season brighter for so many children!
