*CLOSED* Back to School Giveaway: Kind Snacks

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

The next fabulous giveaway for the Back To School Giveaway Bonanza is a yummy one thanks to Kind Snacks!

Here’s what Kind has to say about their awesome products:

At KIND we craft delicious, healthful foods from wholesome all-natural ingredients you can see and pronounce.® We believe that food should never be processed to the point that you can no longer tell what it is! That’s why we use whole nuts and fruit, and bind them together with honey through a natural process that keeps them fresh, brings out their flavor, and achieves just the right amount of crunch 


What I love about these snacks, is that they are PERFECT for after school treats.  The kids get a yummy snack and they dont’ even know that it is good for them!  Shhhhhh — it’ll be our little secret!

I am also excited to share a great even that is coming up this weekend!  The Great Kindness Challenge will take place on Saturday, August the 14th.

    We will deliver Meals on Wheels, donate toys, and clean up the river near our campsite.

  2. molly says

    We’d like to make a lightboard toy. Our son is autistic and loves light switches, so my husband is working on a lap board with different switches and lights to turn on so we can “play” together (instead of it being isolatory). If it works, we want to make one for the local autism center, his preschool, and the other major preschool that helps ASD kids in the area. They looove light switches LOL.

  3. says

    We are going to create our own kind deed. We are a Military family and we are going to put together several care packages to send to new Privates at Basic Training in Ft. Lenord Wood, Missouri. These Soldiers do not have any family or friends that send them letters.

  22. Jill O says

    The kids and I are going to sit down with the list they have on their website and pick 5 things to do. I am going to guide them towards donating some of their toys! 🙂

  23. nicole says

    we will definitely read a book to a younger child and we work hard everyday on showing respect and kindness to elders by letting them go first on the bus, opening the doors for them, etc. however i think that their suggestion of smiling to a homeless person might be a little off. here in manhattan that might result in getting accosted by that person.

  24. Anna says

    My 7 kids and I will be picking up trash at the neighborhood park, and each of them will be picking their own from the checklist todo as well.

  25. Laurie says

    There are so many on here that I’m going to try to do, but my favorite is donating supplies to school kids. You really don’t understand how much something as basic as this helps until you see the benefits of it first hand.

  26. Rene Larson says

    The GKC is such an awesome idea. I printed out the checklist and think I will have the kids work on it until we do all of them.

  42. Shannon Driscoll Stout says

    That’s a really cool list! What a great idea! I think I’d like to “write a happy message with sidewalk chalk” along with happy faces and hearts, like others on the list stated. This is something I can do with my family as we talk about the list and other opportunities for kindness.

  43. says

    I think it would be great if I took the kids to help our elderly neighbor out. We could work in her yard or help her do her grocery shopping.
