Frosted Flakes Plant a Seed, Earn Your Stripes

Posted by Stitchblade | 9:24 PM Jan 31, 2009

The best way to keep a child healthy and happy is with sports and play. They build self confidence and keep in good physical health. Sadly though a lot of communities lack having a playing field that is pleasant to visit. This equals more children sitting in front of the T.V. drooling as they play 5 more hours of video games.

With the current economic struggle, playing fields everywhere are being neglected due to budget cuts in funding. Kellogg's Frosted Flakes is helping us out! They are committed to helping to rebuild athletic fields across America.

Kellogg's Frosted Flakes Earn Your Stripes program has made a call to action for a nationwide field renovation program! The program kicks off this Super Bowl Sunday with a commercial called "Plant a Seed". The commercial focuses on how together we all can make a difference in kids' lives.

The program will make over about 50 fields across the U.S. to help give our families better places to be active and play. By visiting the website you can nominate a field in your own neighborhood!

We need to inspire our children to help our communities! My own daughter, Morgan is doing things to help our community through 4H. She has organized her very own food drive!

What have you encouraged your children to do lately to help out? I would love to hear some more ideas!

Don't forget to check out Mom Central for more information about this and other great programs.

Reminder..

Posted by Stitchblade | 8:57 AM Jan 29, 2009

Please remember...just saying you want to win doesn't get you in this contest. Please read over this.

  1. Visit Stitchblade Designs and sign up for the ENEWS & UPDATES. Come back here and post a comment when you have done this.
  2. TWEET IT! Copy and paste this message and send it out on twitter: "@stitchblade Awesome giveaway http://www.notsoaveragemama.com". Be sure to post a separate comment along with your twitter name when you have done this.
  3. Follow me on twitter! Click that little birdie in the middle bar over there. Post a comment here letting me know!
  4. Follow my blog or Subscribe through the reader, and again post a separate comment letting me know that you have.
I gave y'all 4 different ways to enter. When I go to pick a winner I will have to go through and check and delete the comments that are not actual entries. If you ONLY posted a comment saying you wanted to win, your entry is going to be history. It's not fair to those that actually followed the rules by completing 1 or more of the given tasks. So if you didn't read through the first time and just posted that "Hey I wanna win". Then please take the time to go do one of the tasks and post a new comment stating that you have. Thank you all! I'm just trying to be fair here.
