Back-to-School Giveaway: $100 in KIND Snacks!

by Tara Kuczykowski on August 11, 2010 · 946 comments

Join me every day this week for Back-to-School Giveaways. I’ll be posting 5-day giveaways at 8 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET to give you plenty of chances to win!

As I've mentioned before, KIND Snacks have quickly become one of my favorite healthy snacks, and they're especially great when I'm looking for a nutritious snack while I'm on the go.  The makers of KIND believe that food should never be processed to the point that you can no longer tell what it is, and all of their bars are made from wholesome all-natural ingredients you can see and pronounce.  With whole nuts and fruit held together with honey through a natural process that keeps them fresh, KIND snacks are packed full of flavor and have just the right amount of crunch!

KIND is a sponsor of the annual Great Kindness Challenge on August 14.

The Great Kindness Challenge is one day devoted to performing as many acts of kindness as possible. This year's goal is to have over one million children participate with the hope that this day will inspire a lifelong commitment to service and kindness.

From sunup to sundown, children around the world will accomplish simple, kind deeds using The Great Kindness Challenge Checklist from Kids for Peace. Visit The Great Kindness Challenge for more information and to sign up to participate!

We are already doing it! We bake goodies every Friday and bring them to the homeless shelter. We are told that the residents look forward to them so we've been making extra. It's a lot of work but the reward is awesome!

25 K. Wolsiffer August 14, 2010 at 3:43 pm

Our town was hit by an F4 deadly tornado in June. The entire family helped in the clean up process. We continually donate clothing and household items also.

We're also donating items - clothing, shoes, even baby items/ furniture that we no longer need. Clothes go in the big containers near the stores, and the furniture goes on the curb outside. People always come before trash day. It's nice to know they're still useful to someone, even anonymously.

34 Carol August 14, 2010 at 6:08 pm

I returned a baggie with WIC checks and money left in a grocery cart this week. I know that awful feeling when you have lost something of value -- I left an envelope of valuable coupons at the checkout once and realized too late to retrieve them -- (FREEBIES, etc.), but have been so grateful when I was preoccupied and left my coupon holder in a shopping basket and someone returned it.

I was waiting in line at the doctor with a frazzled-looking mom and so I played with her little girl for abit and let her get some peace and quiet for at least a few minutes.

36 melinda August 14, 2010 at 6:40 pm

Every year we go through what we have.
If it's usable, in good condition and we
can give it away we do it. Our kids learn
a valuable lesson and we're grateful for
what we have.

37 Sara Pritzl August 14, 2010 at 6:45 pm

We will be volunteering to help with a meal.

44 Connie August 14, 2010 at 8:18 pm

I am a special education aide every Friday I bring a healthy snack to my kids for having a great week, so many do not eat properly and families don't have enough money to provide treats. I also buy any needed clothing if they can not afford the essentials, jackets, socks, hats, mittens, school supplies.

45 Maggie August 14, 2010 at 8:44 pm

A coworker doesn't have a computer at home and isn't computer savy at all. Our health insurance offers up to $300 cash back for completing a health profile online and watching informative slides and vidoes as well as taking different health related pledges. I helped her fill out her profile and fill out all the required info to get her cash back! She really needed it because she was moving out of an abusive situation and moving into her own apartment!
