FUNdraise For A BIG Cause with Chuck E. Cheese + Giveaway

I received complimentary products to provide this post. All opinions are my own.
 
 Did you know April is National Volunteer Month? Chuck E. Cheese is ramping up for NVM with a nationwide fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sister of America. Every single Chuck E. Cheese location across the country will donate 15% of sales from 3-9 p.m. on 3/31 to BBBS when guests mention the organization. They’re also doing a donation drive throughout April, where families can donate $1, $5 or any amount of their choice to help BBBS match “Littles” with “Big” mentors. When kids donate, they get to write their name on a Pin-Up ticket (picture below) and stick it on the wall to show their support.
 
 
I use to LOVE going to Chuck E. Cheese as a kid. And I love that they are giving back to a great organization. This is a great way for parents to talk to their kids about giving back in a way that isn’t too jarring. Trying to explain why it’s important to help some charities - like homeless shelters or cancer support groups - can be a little scary for kids when you get into the details, but it’s easy to talk about how BBBS matches kids (who might be having a hard time) with really nice, smart grown-ups to help them make good choices.

  4. My daughter has always been encouraged to give back. We have always participated in fundraiser walks and things. She is now 10 and 3 days a week she gives up her recess and volunteers to go and play with the kids in the special needs room at her school and has done so for 2 years. This would be a great reward for her to go to Chuck E Cheeses with a friend and have a good time.
