Although being a teacher is very rewarding, it can sometimes be a thankless job. Every once in awhile, you touch someone’s life and their admiration for you propels them to want to thank you in a special way. This is a culminating moment for the nearly 6.2 million teachers who are dedicated to educating the youth in this country. The Cheerios Send Cheer to Teachers program makes it simple for anyone to thank their favorite current or childhood teacher.
Parents can demonstrate the gratitude that they have for their children’s teachers by using specially-marked boxes of Cheerios cereal to cut special postcards to show how thankful they are. All they have to do is locate these cereal boxes in their local grocery stores now through mid-October 2013. To create the card, just follow these three easy steps:
- Cut out the postcard found on the front of the box.
- On the back-side of the postcard, write a message of appreciation or a simple “thank you.”
- Share your cheer with your teacher.
Cheerios is also partnering with the Box Tops for Education program to offer parents a way to help ease the burden for teachers who are constantly having to use their own money to provide supplies for needy students. It is estimated that teachers spend an average $398 of their own money on supplies and resources to aid students yearly.
Now through July 17, 2014, parents can enter the Send Cheer to Teachers sweepstakes for a chance to win one of five prize packages for their child’s school. The prizes are:
- Grand prize made up of 100,000 Bonus Box Tops and $10,000 worth of school supplies.
- One of four prize packages made up of 30,000 Bonus Box Tops and $2,000 worth of school supplies.
There are even more chances to spread cheer throughout the school year! See marked boxes of Cheerios and enter to win $20,000 or one of four $5,000 prize packs for you and your school. To learn more, visit www.btfe.com/sendcheer.
