[twitter]Cheerios and I don’t always see eye to eye, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t stopped buying the boxes.
Right after Charlie’s face adorned the backs of Cheerios, the next promotion to come along was one supporting Team Canada at Sochi 2014.
You cut the CHEER! out of Cheerios, and it turns in to a postcard that you can mail to the athletes.
We sat down at breakfast this morning and I asked him who he wanted to send a letter to. Did he want to send one to Alex Bilodeau who he had met in Vancouver right after his gold medal? Did he want to send one to his favorite hockey player, Roberto Luongo?
“I want to send one to Canada,” he said. So a letter to the entire team was crafted with a scribbled maple leaf and Go Canada Go chanted.
We hustled to the post box before school and sent off our encouragement to Team Canada at Sochi 2014.
Got a kid who needs some letter practicing encouragement? Send some off. Better yet, just send one off because these athletes deserve our support for the years of sacrifice they make in the name of a few seconds, minutes, hours of national pride.
