It is during the holiday season that the spirit of giving seems to be most alive and well. Perhaps it is because of the overwhelming, seemingly endless need that is everywhere we go. Maybe it is because as we all find ourselves looking for that perfect gift for our children (or any loved one), we realize that someone out there just wants socks.
We try really hard to not only give back ourselves, but to involve our children in the process. Our children are very lucky to have the things that they need and often some of what they want as well (notice we said some. No, kids, Santa is NOT bringing you an iPad Air this year…or any year!). It can be something simple like volunteering time to sort food at the local food bank. Or perhaps as big as choosing a child from the Angel Tree and fulfilling their wish list. It can even be forgoing your own gifts at a birthday party to instead make sure animals at the local shelter have supplies they need.
Picking up extra blankets or coats and keeping them in your car is an excellent way to help someone on a cold, winter night. Or maybe you pay it forward by paying for the meal of the car behind you in the drive-thru line.
We feel beyond privileged to be supporting the Scholastic and Kellogg’s® Frosted Mini Wheats® “Every Day is a Big Day” program where families are invited to complete monthly missions for an opportunity to earn free Scholastic books and be entered into a sweepstakes.
For the month of December, the theme is give and get back. You and your family can come up with at least three ways to give back to your community or others in need. No action is too small. As an added bonus, after your family completes the December Mini™ Mission, enter a Kellogg’s® Family Rewards Code on your Mission Complete page of Scholastic.com/minimissions and you’ll receive an additional FREE BOOK!* Kellogg’s® Family Rewards Codes can be found inside all boxes of Frosted Mini Wheats®. Bonus offer ends December 31st. *While supplies last.
Don’t wait. Start today. Let this holiday season be the one where you and your family work together to make a difference. Fill your heart with the joy of knowing that you have made the holidays a little easier for someone else. That is the true magic of the holiday season.
Kellogg’s® Frosted Mini-Wheats® and Scholastic have partnered to bring you the Every Day is a Big Day program, created to benefit families, schools and communities across the country.
Your family is invited to complete monthly Mini™ Missions to get free books for your family. Also, each month you’ll be entered into a sweepstakes for the chance to win one of 131 valuable prizes for your school and community. As you earn books and enter the sweepstakes, your family is sure to have a blast and learn something new along the way!
