A Good Idea?

So, this may seem really random, but I know that a lot of us are eating the Yoplait light yogurts. They have a promotion going on right now called the pound for pound challenge. Each lid that is saved and sent in to yoplait is worth 10 cents towards fighting hunger in America. I have at least a dozen, but I was thinking that if we all saved them and collected them to send in, we could help make a difference for someone who needs it out there. The economy has hit a lot of families and the news is filled with people who are struggling. Just a thought because I know that we look at those lids and think "my 12 wont make that much of a difference, why bother" and we really could make a difference if we all did it. Lemme know what you think, I will send them in myself regardless but it would be nice to possibly change someone elses circumstances in life while we change ours =).

That's a cool idea. I am the Box Tops Coordinator for our school and that's the biggest excuse people make, my 10 won't make a difference, but one dollar is one dollar and my school is moving into a new building next year and they can use all the money they can get. But I think the cause for the yoplait lids is great too. How come not all of them have the pink lids? I've bought some and wondered about that? Great idea!

My husband, myself and my boys all eat that yogurt. And with our new eating habits we're eating quite a bit of them. So I will check it out and save them too.
