Have you heard of the Cheerios Cheer Tour? It’s a wonderful program that is running through the rest of November. This postcard campaign was started by Cheerios and the USO as a way to spread cheer to military families and support USO programs.
Being military family myself I am a big supporter of this program (funny side not as I am writing this right now the Commercial of this program came on! It’s ment to be!!)
Specially marked boxes of Cheerios will have Cheer postcards right on the front of the box. Simply cut out the postcards and write a message of thanks and cheer and even add a drawing if your family is feeling creative. Add a stamp and mail the pre-addressed postcards to the USO who will deliver the Cheer card to military families around the country.
Here is another great part of this campaign! For each postcard mailed, Cheerios will donate $1 to the USO through November 30th, 2012! In fact, 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. While the postcards will only be available until November 30th, 2011, you have an entire year to mail them in.
How Does the Program Work?
Locate a specially marked Cheerios cereal box in your grocery store. After purchasing the box, there are just 3 easy steps!
Cut out the postcard found on the front of the box. You will see cut out lines around the “Cheer” in the Cheerios logo.
On the back-side of the postcard, write a message of encouragement or a simple “thank you.”
Add postage, and drop the pre-addressed post card in the mail.
Once the postcards are received, the USO will distribute them to military families on bases and in USO centers. Sending your ‘thanks’ is a simple, personal gesture of appreciation that will mean so much for the recipient.
I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Cheerios and received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to post.
