Rice Krispies and Treats for Toys.
Let’s not forget the Salvation Army too.
They are all helping a child enjoy a toy this holiday season and guess what? You are a part of this integral process of giving back and giving selflessly. Yes, YOU. If you’ve followed along, you can see our Rice Krispies creations that we’ve made this year. It is as easy as buying ingredients that you need to make Rice Krispie treats and creating Princess Sweetums, Robo Rob, Vinny Vroom or anything that your heart desires.
You Can Help.
By doing that, you are helping Kellogg’s Rice Krispies and the Salvation Army give a child a toy this holiday. We believe that every child should have a toy during the holidays. After all, it’s the memories they will cherish forever.
It’s simple and it brings your family together and it’s as easy as uploading one pic to your favorite social media networks that you are already on! Twitter, IG or Facebook! Gabby explains it all in the video above!
Jingle All the Way!
We created Sammy the Snowman for our #TreatsForToys creation! We adorned him with fruit leather, chocolate chips, cranberries and a marshmallow top hat. He was simple to make and super delicious for a treat afterwards! Something as small as this can make a huge difference in a life of a child.
It’s the perfect opportunity to show your little ones the importance of giving during the holidays and as often as they can. I explained to Gabby and Mimi why we were making treats and why we were sharing them.
I explained to them that not every child has a tree or much less gifts to go under it. For this reason, Kellogg’s and the Salvation Army have teamed up together to help a child have a present this year. The girls reflected and were taken aback. Gabby understood the significance of giving when you can and Mimi thought it was sad but, were happy to have a small part in giving this year.
