I have always been a fruit snack fan.  I think I like these more than the kids do.  They have authentic fruit flavors, not a processed taste and you also get in some vitamins when eating this.  So, I was very excited when Betty Crocker and My Bog Spark offered to provide me with two boxes of Betty Crocker Fruit Flavored Snacks and make a $25 donation to One Laptop per Child on my behalf.

Sometimes its difficult to have the opportunity, time, money or resources to donate to charity, but with this awesome program that Betty Crocker has started, it will make it a little bit easier. This is also a great way to teach the kids about giving to others and donating to a cause for those less fortunate.

With the purchase of specially marked boxes of kid favorites – including Fruit Roll-Ups, Gushers, Fruit by the Foot, and Stickerz & Shapes, your child could win one laptop to keep and Betty Crocker Fruit Flavored Snacks will donate another to a child in Africa. That's so a win, win. Take a look at this video to see the great work One Laptop per Child is doing in Africa.

Each day from now through May 30, 2010, one laptop prize will be awarded to a U.S. winner. For every laptop won, one laptop will be donated to an African child through One Laptop per Child, an organization that creates educational opportunities for the world’s poorest children by providing each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power connected laptop with content and software designed for collaborative, joyful, self-empowered learning. For your chance to win, simply enter the unique online code printed on participating Betty Crocker Fruit Flavored Snack packages on www.WinOneGiveOne.com.

Betty Crocker has also decided to be generous to one lucky reader as well. I was offered an additional two boxes and another $25 donation for me to give away to one of  my readers. Even if you don't like the fruit snacks as much as I do, the kiddies are sure to enjoy them.
