September went by in the blink of an eye and now we're settled into a routine with school, work, extra-curricular activities, play dates, volunteering and more. As busy as our lives are, we always try to eat dinner together as a family—either at home, or at my parents or in-laws' homes. Coming from Greek families, we're thankful that we're always well-fed with good home-cooked meals. (I'm especially thankful for the help we get because I don't love to cook and I like avoiding kitchen disasters!)
We like to take the kids out for dinner, too, because it's a nice treat. We take our boys everywhere—no restaurant is off-limits, and we like to mix things up. However, we do love eating at Boston Pizza because it's close to home, the food is good, and it's a great place to bring the kids. I also love how much Boston Pizza does to give back to the community and schools. Boston Pizza has, for as long as I can remember, partnered with area schools (including the school my children attend) for special events where money goes back to the school system, so going is not only a special treat, but a great way to raise money for your children's school.
I'm so happy to be working with Boston Pizza this year in spreading the word about the annual Kids Card campaign that raises money for the Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects.
Boston Pizza Kids Cards are a great deal for families—a minimum of $5 gets you five free Kids Meals valued at $35. Sweet deal, right? All donations made support kids across the country by helping them access role models and mentors. Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects is a program that works in partnership with organizations like Big Brothers Big Sisters, JDRF, Kids Help Phone, Live Different and the Rick Hansen Foundation. The goal is to help mentor children so that they can reach their full potential. It takes a village to raise a child, right?
All donations made support kids across the country by helping them access role models and mentors. Boston Pizza is offering a sixth Kids Meal this year if you register your Kids Card with a MyBP account, available online at Boston Pizza or through the Boston Pizza iPhone app.
Since 1990, the Boston Pizza Foundation has raised and donated over 18 million dollars to charities in communities in Canada and around the world—isn't that incredible to hear?
Boston Pizza believes that strong role models inspire kids to be great.
"Every child has the ability to make a difference in the world, and at Boston Pizza we value how important positive role models and mentors are in a young person's ability to reach their dreams. Through Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects and our partnering organizations, we will work together to ensure all kids have the opportunity to have a positive mentor or role model to help support, guide, and empower them to become all that they can be."
I like knowing that when I go out with my family for dinner, I can do something that in return will help others, too.
