Giving Back With Rice Krispies and #TreatsForToys

41 comments
The holidays are my favourite time of the year—after summer, of course.

I love everything about this season: shopping for presents for everyone on my list, writing Christmas cards, wrapping gifts, decorating the house with my family, watching holiday movies, attending and hosting festive parties, and of course, the most important thing of all—giving back, in big and small ways, to those who deserve it the most.

The Kellogg's Rice Krispies #TreatsForToys campaign is back, helping kids during the holidays in a great way. In partnership with The Salvation Army, Canadian families are encouraged to create a toy-shaped Rice Krispies treat and submit a photo of it on TreatsForToys.ca, or share on social media with the hashtag #TreatsForToys.

For every photo of your Rice Krispies creation you share online, (and it doesn't have to be anything really creative; it is, after all, the thought that counts!) Kellogg's Rice Krispies will donate $20 to The Salvation Army for the purchase of a real toy for a Canadian child in need during the holiday season.

I had a lot of fun making Rice Krispies treats with my youngest son over the weekend—he basically made three batches all by himself, which made me so very happy because now he can take over all the baking duties in our house—phew!


I'm spreading the love and giving away a great Kellogg's package to help you take part with your family, too.

Included in the package: two holiday edition Rice Krispies boxes, candy for decorating your creations, marshmallows, and some amazing Paderno mixing bowls. All you have to do is make some tasty treats which will help create lasting memories for deserving children.

Leave me a comment below telling me what you love most about the holiday season, and I'll pick a winner randomly on Friday, December 8th.

Make. Share. Give. Good Luck!

I love the overall positivity of the holiday season. People are in good moods and spreading cheer. If we could figure out a way to make that feeling last all year long, the world would be a much better place.

What I love about the holiday season is really donating to Toys for Tots. I have done this for many many years. There is a long story involved, but my Mom signed us up way back when... and since then we made it a tradition to give back. When I became an adult, I have given back. You never 'see' who it goes to, but it is a feeling inside, knowing there is someone out there who may have gotten what they needed or wanted with your and others help who might not have normally had a good Christmas. You bring a smile somewhere.
