Generally, I love it when companies reach out to me about products or ideas they have. I love testing and trying out new things. When the campaign that a company is embarking on also has an aspect of giving back, I am even more excited. Except with the Treats for Toys email comes from Kelloggs.
Seriously, I have about zero creativity when it comes to these things. Sure, I have great ideas in my head, but they never seem to materialize the way I envisioned them. Arms fall off robots. Licorice string doesn’t stick the way it’s supposed to. And don’t get me started on manipulating that icing in a tube.
This year though, I figured out a way to beat them at their own game. I proudly introduce Robot in a Pan.
No tricky cutting. No oddly tiny head or absurdly long arms that continuously fall off. None of that. And I still get to upload my picture and use it. And when I do, Kellogg’s will be donating $20 to the Salvation Army to buy a real toy for a child this Christmas. I may finally be winning this thing people.
The process is simple. Make Rice Krispies treats out of your favourite variety of Rice Krispies – the Holiday, Brown Rice, Vanilla, or regular – take your pick. Then create a toy-shaped treat. Make it as elaborate or as simple as you’d like. You won’t need to be much more creative than I am, but it wouldn’t hurt. If you’re looking for some ideas, there are lots to be found on the Treats for Toys website.
Then, snap a photo of your creation andupload it to the site. If you prefer, you can share them on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram using the #TreatsForToys tag. Kellogg’s is going to donate up to $30,000 to The Salvation Army this year to make sure that no child goes without.
