Spin & Win- fun for a great cause!

I recently found out about a fun new way to help support the Save the Children's US programs. These programs are dedicated to helping children in the US who live in poverty. I remember watching news stories and reading articles about families in need before I had kids, but now that I'm a mom, helping others out  brings on a whole new sense of urgency. Can you imagine how hard it is to be a mother and not have the ability to provide for your kids? It must be so terrifying and heartbreaking. That's why I love it when I hear about these easy ways to help- and this one is fun too!

Right now, Frigidaire and Jennifer Garner have joined forces to support Save the Children's US Programs through a Spin & Win online game.   If you go to to play the game, you will have the opportunity to win gift cards to be used for fun family projects, just by clicking a button and spinning the wheel. You could even win a pretty new Frigidaire Affinity washer and dryer!

The best part of all of this is that every time you play, $1 will be donated by Frigidaire to Save the Children. This is part of their $250,000 commitment to support Save the Children's CHANGE program, which is dedicated to providing nutritious snacks and promoting healthier lifestyles for children living in poverty in the United States.  What a great program!

So, go visit!
