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!

Story of kindness...My 9 year old son suprised me last week when I came home from work by having cleaned the house. This is the boy that I always have to battle to even clean his room. He had cleaned the living room, bathroom, his room and his baby sisters room. It was a very sweet act of kindness!!
