Christmas is a time for sharing, for gift-giving, and for charity. My kids have so much. So many toys, so many books! With Christmas rapidly approaching I know they are going to be getting plenty of presents from their relatives. So we’ve been cleaning and sorting, filling boxes with toys and books they’ve outgrown so that we can donate them to the Salvation Army. My girls are still young, but I do try and explain to them that there are others in our own community, and around the world, that are less fortunate then we are. And like most kids, they have generous, caring natures. They want to share their things with others, they love to think that some other child might enjoy them.
Kinder’s getting in the holiday spirit too. They’ve created “A Joy To Share” program to help support the Children’s Miracle Network of Canada. Visit the Kinder Canada Facebook page and help Kinder donate to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals by watching and sharing their “A Joy To Share” video. Every time the video is shared Kinder will donate $1 to the Children’s Miracle Network, for a total of up to $5,000.
I love that Kinder is working together again with the Children’s Miracle Network. It’s one of the many reasons that I’m proud to be an ambassador. I also have a real soft spot for Kinder’s holiday treats. The extra large eggs that only come out at Christmas and Easter have been a long time favourite in our household (long pre-dating the arrival of my kids). I’m excited that this Christmas marks the first year when both girls will be old enough to have Kinder eggs both large and small as part of their stocking treats.
As a Kinder ambassador I received an assortment of holiday treats, including a Kinder Maxi egg and other goodies. I am trying to save the giant egg for Christmas, but am really sorely tempted to open it NOW.
I also may have completely forgotten about that whole sharing thing, after I got into the Kinder mini-eggs and ate 99% of them. (Creamy hazelnut centre, so yummy!!)
What about you guys? Do you use the regular surprise eggs as stocking stuffers? Have you ever opened a Kinder Maxi egg? (If you haven’t, seriously, you’re missing out! The giant toys are so cool. I even have holiday knickknacks that we pull out every season, which started as Kinder Maxi toys.)
