Send a little Cheer!

The giveaway winner is...

As many of you I am sure know we are a Navy family! I have completely lucked out and had my husband around A LOT in our 7+ years together for which I am extremely grateful but not many other military families have the same luck. The holidays are always a bit tough for me when I am not in Connecticut but having my husband here makes all the difference. Having him not home would be a tough one on me like it is for so many other families this time of year.

Weeellll the USO and Cheerios have partnered up this year to help spread a little Cheer to those families! For each Cheerios Cheer postcard mailed between now and November 2012 Cheerios will donate $1 to the USO to help fund programs that support military families. That would be a win win in my house! We live on Honey Nut Cheerios and obviously would love to help our fellow military families!

To kick off the campaign, Cheerios has already donated $150,000 to the USO and will donate up to an additional $100,000 based upon the number of postcards received from specially marked boxes now through November 30th, 2012.

Sending a “Cheer” postcard is a simple way to say thanks and lift the spirits of our country’s military families. So, take a moment out of your day to spread some Cheer and send a message of thanks!

Would you like to win a Cheerios Cheer package? I am sure you do! 

All you have to do is leave a comment telling me how you will be spreading a little Cheer this holiday season! 

***This giveaway is open until December  2nd when I will pick a winner with Please be sure to leave an e-mail address so I can contact you if you are the lucky winner!***

Oh, what a neat giveaway! How do I spread cheer? Well, I really try to be extra aware of the people out there, be it when I'm driving or at a store. I mean, there are some cranky people out there! I try to go out of my way to NOT be one of those! (Letting people merge in/pull out, smiling at the cashier, etc.)

I totally want to win this giveaway for the bowl alone. *lol* So cute! I'll be spreading Christmas cheer this year by donating change when I have it, baking cookies for our neighbors, and smiling at everyone. :D I LOVE Christmas time!

I agree with Jamie - that bowl is the cutest ever! My boys and I are going to spread some cheer by delivering bouquets of coffee filter flowers to our local convalescent hospital :)

Happy holidays!

(Random P.S. - how cool is it that my captcha phrase below right now is "urock" LOL!)

Money is a lot tighter this year due to a layoff but I plan on bakeing cookies for some elderly inbound people I know in my town.
