Betty Crocker Fruit Flavored Snacks “Win & Give” Campaign and XO Laptop Giveaway

I love when our blog can be used to help promote a good cause. Children's charities are important for us as a family to support. We have worked with several great charities since starting our site and we are happy to now help support Betty Crocker in their Win and Give Campaign.

One of the great ways to share with kids about helping other kids is through programs like this one. Many kids do not understand about how children in other countries may not have as much as they do and how a computer can connect them to the world and to a better education. By purchasing Betty Crocker fruit snacks you can begin the conversation about helping others in need. The value of giving to others is something we teach to all the kids at Frugal Family Tree. Plus what kid does not love eating fruit snacks! My son loves to have them with string cheese.

With the Betty Crocker Fruit Flavored Snacks “Win and Give” campaign there are a few ways to help give a laptop to kids in Africa. When you purchased Betty Crocker Flavored Fruit snacks you can enter your UPC codes on the Win and Give website and for every 100 UPC codes received in a day they will donate one laptop to a child in Africa. Specially marked boxes of Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks can be an instant winner for your child to win an XO laptop and one to be donated to a child in Africa.

Parenting expert Dr. Michele Borba is working Betty Crocker Fruit Flavored Snacks and the “Win and Give” campaign, a partnership with the non-profit One Laptop per Child (OLPC), not only to make it easy for moms and kids to give to others, but also to show that giving to others can be fun.

Dr. Borba recently traveled to Rwanda with Betty Crocker Fruit Flavored Snacks and OLPC to help give XO laptops to kids in schools. For her thoughts on the trip and the program itself, please visit  For more information, you may also check out to see first-hand the incredible impact these laptops have had on the kids in Rwanda along with additional tips from Dr. Borba and videos of her speaking about the positive impact giving back has on the lives of children.

To help promote the Win and Give Betty Crocker Campaign we are hosting a Giveaway for one XO Laptop for one lucky reader and one will be donated to a child in Africa. How cool is that!!!
