I love serving my community and blogging makes it possible to make a big difference. I’ve donated about 20,000 in products over the past two years, and had the opportunity for a company to donate 1500.00 to a charity of my choice. So making a difference in my community means a lot to me and it means a lot to me when companies help communities.
Perkins Restaurants contacted me with something they are doing for children. Perkins works with Give Kids The World (GKTW) a non-profit organization that provides week long vacations to very sick children.
Did you know that each year in the U.S., 27,000 children are diagnosed with a life threatening illness?
Since 1986, GKTW has served more than 100,000 families from all 50 states and 70 countries. Families enjoy a week-long, cost-free vacation that includes accommodations at the Give Kids The World Village, meals, donated attraction tickets (including Disney World), and more. They even get to eat ice cream at breakfast!
Perkins Restaurants has been working with GKTW for nearly 20 years. They serve more than 200,000 meals for free located at the heart of Give Kids The World Village. Over the years, more than 4 million free meals have been served. In addition to annual fundraising efforts, ongoing activities for Give Kids The World include community-oriented events and specially marked coin boxes for spare change in the lobbies of most Perkins restaurants.
Now, on Monday March 21st, Perkins Restaurants across the US and Canada are offering you guys their legendary, buttermilk pancakes for free during Perkins Pancake Day. In return Perkins hopes you will consider making a donation to Give Kids The World.
