Send Cheer To Teachers With Cheerios! @Cheerios #Giveaway #ad

*This post was written by me on behalf of General Mills.  I received a product sample to review.  All opinions are 100% mine.

    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:

  1. Grand prize made up of 100,000 Bonus Box Tops and $10,000 worth of school supplies.
  2. 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

  1. Oh wow, more and more companies are supporting the teachers! I love it!

    I think my son’s special education teacher deserves MAJOR kudos. There are those teachers whom your child will always remember, and Mrs Campa is most definitely one of them! She has a small class of children all diagnosed with Autism and some completely non-verbal – yet she manages to connect and communicate with each and everyone of them. Not because she simply has to, but because she genuinely loves & cares for them. She is truly the picture of what an amazing teacher is, and should be. Any teacher who can take the time to truly understand and connect with a student, is amazing.

  2. I have an autistic son and I would definitely support her. I’m not sure how many other kids with special needs she has in her class but I can’t imagine doing her job.

  3. I’d like to thank my high school French teacher. She was a listening ear, an inspiration, and is still a friend.

  4. I’d like to thank so many teachers who were caring and influential in my life. One that stands out is my 7th grade English teacher who encouraged me to be a writer – opened my eyes to a world of possibilities!

  5. Terry My Journey With Candida says

    When I was in high school, on teacher stands out in my mind. He was a science teacher and one of the kindest men I know. I wish I would have taken the time to let him know what an impact he had on my life, but… he died at an early age.

  6. Yesenia Torres says

    Yo quisiera darle las gracias a la maestra de kinder de mi hija, por toda su pasciencia y amor con los niños.
