Make that a box of Honey Nut Cheerios! A while back I had a post as part of ShopRite's Bloggers in Caring program, where each comment I received would equal a box of cereal donated to area foodbanks. Since I participated in this program, my little face (along with the faces of many other area bloggers) is part of a collage on the back of specially marked "Bloggers in Caring" boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios available exclusively at ShopRite. You can click the picture below to open a larger version. It's kind of like Where's Waldo, but there's one pic of me (my usual profile pic) under the right eye (there's a few reused in there):
I was sent a box, but I'm going to run to my local ShopRite and pick up some more...I mean, how often can you say your picture is on the back of a box of Cheerios?!
But wait, here's an opportunity for you to be on the back of a box! Shoprite Partners in Caring is teaming up with General Mills for an "Expressions of Hunger" contest. This is a video contest that challenges you to submit a video "using song, poetry, dance or dramatic reading that creatively express the plight of the hungry or offer solutions to the issue of hunger." Up to six grand prize winners will have their stories and photos featured on a special-edition Cheerios box available exclusively at ShopRite stores in September 2010! Visit www.ExpressionsofHunger.com to view all of the details. Entries are being accepted now through March 1st, so start taping!
Disclosure: I was not paid to participate in this program or compensated to have my picture on the box. I did receive a thank you gift which included a free box. This post was not obligatory; all opinions expressed regarding this program are mine.
