Mom in Training: Get ready for National Volunteer Month with Chuck E. Cheese’s - #Giveaway Ends 4/8

March 25, 2016

Get ready for National Volunteer Month with Chuck E. Cheese’s - #Giveaway Ends 4/8


Chuck E. Cheese’s is ramping up for National Volunteer Month (April) with a nationwide fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters. I can remember my dad being a big brother to a little boy when I was growing up and thought it was awesome. So this is already on my calendar of events to attend!

Every single Chuck E. Cheese’s across the country will donate 15% of sales from 3-9PM on 3/31 to BBBS when guests mention the organization. They are 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. To top it off when kids donate, they get to write their name on a Pin-Up ticket (picture above) and stick it on the wall to show their support


This event  gives us parents the perfect opportunity to talk to our kids about giving back in a way that isn’t too jarring or confusing. 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.

So make sure you mark your calendars for March 31st and visit your local Chuck E. Cheese’s between 3-9PM and show your support!

Connect with Chuck E. Cheese:

Win it:  One lucky reader will win a guest pass (good for 1 large pizza, 4 fountain drinks and 30 tokens) + 1,000 tickets. This giveaway will end April 8th at 11:59 PM EST. The winner will have 24 hours to respond to my email. If no response, a new winner will be chosen.  Prize fulfillment will be made by the sponsor, I am not responsible for prize delivery or lost or stolen deliveries. Open to residents of the US.

I do know that my niece, who is 15 has been donating her cut hair, every time she gets it cut, to a program to make wigs for cancer patients. She's been doing this for several years, shortly after her grandma died from cancer. It was her idea, and I was very proud of her for thinking of that :)

It's an organization that takes used and new soap and bath products and sanitizes them and together we put together packages of those products to go to homeless and people who go through catastrophes. We also include a sweet note in there for them. It's a great charity and it's awesome to do it here in Las Vegas, where the hotels contribute all their used and new bath products too! We both love it, and feel great giving back.

The value of helping with time to volunteer and give a smile, donating they love to pick some toys and go with me to donation centers writing a little note to say hope you like and have fun with their own handwriting is a little note of love for a child to be happy. We also love to go to our local parks and beaches and they help me to clean to keep our environment clean and beautiful. One of the other things i have been able to teach them is to save in a piggy bank and give that donation to a charity once we reach our goal we set for a period of time that would be in their heart so when they are big they know that caring, sharing and loving has so many ways and that you will feel blessed and happy. Thank you so much for the lovely chance :)
