Did you know that 83 percent of kids believe that they can help children in other countries in addition to people in their own communities? That’s according to the “Kids’ Altruism Indicator” conducted in partnership with Parenting magazine. Betty Crocker Fruit Flavored Snacks wants to make it easy for kids to give back locally and globally.

Now through May kids in the U.S. have an opportunity to instantly win a laptop from specially-marked packages of Betty Crocker Fruit Flavored Snacks.  For each laptop won, Betty Crocker Fruit Flavored Snacks will donate a laptop to a child in Africa.  It’s that simple.

These laptops are built with rugged plastic exteriors, 1 GB of memory and 4 GB of Flash storage.  They have wireless broadband and are designed to be extremely power efficient, each retail for $199.  To find out how the laptops positively impact the lives of children and to learn ways you can talk to your children about giving back, visit

God has blessed our family very much, and we have had the opportunity to help children both locally and in other countries over the course of our lives.  From supporting children through World Vision, an orphanage in India, making Christmas Shoeboxes through Samaritan’s Purse, and helping with Haiti relief efforts, we’ve been able to make differences in other children’s lives without leaving home.  I’ve been able to do that too though, having traveled with organizations to both Cameroon and India, and it certainly puts our lives here in perspective when one sees the opportunities that we so take for granted in first world countries.

To kick off their Win One Give One campaign, Betty Crocker Fruit Flavored Snacks are giving one of my readers an XO Laptop and a variety pack of Betty Crocker Fruit Flavored Snacks.

To enter the giveaway – leave a link to a video showing or write a comment of at least a few sentences of a time that your child(ren) decided on their own to give back, and what they did to help other children in another country or in your own community.  You can enter daily but the above MUST be done first to be eligible for a daily entry afterward.  Each subsequent day please just comment with ‘daily entry’.

Open to US residents ages 18+, ends April 5, 2011 at 11:59 PM CST. Winner will be notified by email and have 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen. By entering this giveaway you are stating that you have read my **Privacy/Rules statements and agree to them.
