There are times I look around our home and think, “My goodness! Little One sure is spoiled.” Seriously, for a farming family who “doesn’t have much”, we have a roof over our heads, warmth of our home, and food in our bellies. I’m fortunate to have a job that enables me to provide for Little One, but at the same time, it makes me sad because there are so many children in Canada who don’t have the basics like food to fill their tummies and keep them fueled all day.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and the fact is that some don’t even get a good breakfast to start their day! If anything, I would love for all children to have the basics, like a good breakfast in the morning. Being hungry also affects performance in school – physically and mentally.
Just in time for the holidays, National Bank, in association with Breakfast Clubs of Canada, is offering a decorative piggy-bank filled with gourmet cranberry cookies to help support school breakfast programs across Canada. For only $5, this cute tin of gourmet cranberry cookies made by La Petite Bretonne, makes a great stocking stuffer and the can be used to save change, and to make a change long after the treats are gone.
Beginning November 19 to December 31, 2012 the tin will be available for a limited time at National Bank branches from coast to coast. All profits raised will go directly towards supporting community-based breakfast programs across the country so thousands of school children can start their day with a nutritious meal.
In case you weren’t already aware, the Breakfast Clubs of Canada is a national organization dedicated to providing services and funding for community-based school breakfast programs. It is Breakfast Clubs of Canada’s dream that all children will have an equal chance to start their school day with a nutritious breakfast.
Each year, we donate to this cause. This year we’re excited about supporting with the cookie fundraiser! We hope you will consider doing so as well.
