Remember when there was no internet and you found super cool stuff via tv commercials and all you had to do was eat a ton of cereal to get the UPC codes to mail in? Then make the hopeful trek to the mailbox every.single.day., peering inside cautiously, praying for your goody to finally make it to your house?
Well, UPCs and box top goodies are still out there, but now they have "goodies" that appeal to adults.
Quaker Oats has a community program on how to host "birthday parties with a purpose". Described as (from their site):
Birthdays are all about great times and being with the ones you care about. Hosting a Birthday Party with a Purpose is a great way to introduce children to the thrill of doing good for their communities while experiencing all the fun of a traditional birthday party.
- How-To-Guide: Step-by-step instructions for planning and hosting your child’s party.
- "Kids Doing Good!" T-Shirt gift for the birthday boy or girl.
- Goodness Bags (qty 10), including "Kids Doing Good!" wristbands, temporary tattoos and activity booklets.
- Achievement Certificates (qty 10).
Plus, you can print FREE themed party materials, such as invitations, thank you notes and more under the Party Themes. Simply pick a party theme from the How-To-Guide and we'll go the extra steps to show you how community, caring and birthday fun can go hand in hand. For example, you'll get all the information you need to throw the ultimate "Pirate Party," with a Treasure Hunt where kids can find "loot" and use it to make treasure chests they can donate to children at a local hospital.
How great is that? Party in a box! With lots of great themes and downloadable materials on their site.
