For the first ten years of my oldest son’s life, I raised him alone. I was very worried about him having a positive male influence so I turned to Big Brothers Big Sisters Canada to help him reach his full potential. For several years he spent time with his Big Brother, Dennis. He helped me provide my son with something that I wasn’t able to do myself. Years later, as a way to pay it forward and connect with my own daughter, I volunteered as a Girl Guide leader.
I believe that parents have a common goal. Whether we are rich or poor, married or single, we all strive to provide what we believe is best for our kids. Most of the time that sense of responsibility goes beyond our children and spreads to our communities.
Boston Pizza shares that goal of caring for the community and with Boston Pizza Kids Cards they make it easy for families to take part. Available until October 2nd for a minimum donation of $5, 1 Kids Card gets buyers 5 free kids meals which includes an entrée, side, beverage, dessert and Activity Pack. That’s a value of $35 that can be taken ever further by registering the Kids Cards with MyBP for a 6th free kids meal. It’s free and easy to sign up by visiting BostonPizza.com or downloading the Boston Pizza app in the Apple iTunes store.
The $5 donation doesn’t just provide families with free kids meals. It will provide a kid in need with one hour of time with a role model. Proceeds from Kids Cards allow the Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects to work with charity partners across Canada to provide children with someone in their community they can look up to for inspiration and guidance. Each year, Boston Pizza provides more than 200,000 hours of guidance and inspiration with role models each year. To date, they have raised more than $22 million for charity partners such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, JDRF, Kids Help Phone, The Rick Hansen Foundation and Live Different.
