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.

Give a New Smile to a Child

This is sponsored post written by me on behalf of CampusBookRentals.

Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft. A child with a cleft has twice the odds of dying before their first birthday. Children with cleft conditions who survive may have difficulty eating, speaking, hearing or breathing properly. In some places, they are shunned and rejected. And in too many cases, their parents can't afford the surgeries they need to live a productive life. Every child deserves access to safe, quality surgical care. Every child deserves a future filled with hope.

That's where Operation Smile comes in. Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that performs safe, effective cleft lip and cleft palate surgery, and delivers postoperative and ongoing medical therapies to children in low and middle income countries.

Operation Smile is a pioneer in advocating for the importance of safe surgery in resource poor environments and is the largest surgical charity of its kind, leading research into the causes of cleft lip and cleft palate, and its prevention, treatment and eradication.
