We all know that the best part about dinner is dessert. We don’t have dessert with every dinner but we occasionally like to have a sweet ending to our meal. Kaylee especially loves dessert. When I received the opportunity to try out Marie Callender’s variety of frozen meals and desserts, I was super excited. I always like trying new meal ideas that are quick and easy to make.
I went to my local supermarket and browsed through the frozen food aisle. I found this small, delicious looking Marie Callender’s Apple Pie, which is perfect for 2 (and a half), and decided to give it a try. A few minutes in the microwave and it’s ready before dinner is even finished. It’s safe to say that this little one enjoyed her little piece of the pie.
Not only does Marie Callender’s make great meals, they also have an amazing program called the Comforts From Home Project, which supports USO2GO. The Comforts From Home Project is an easy way to help support our brave troops overseas. By entering the 8-digit code found on participating products, Marie Callender’s will donate $.50 to the USO2GO program, with a guaranteed minimum donation of $100,000 and a maximum donation of $250,000. Limit 5 code entries per person/computer each day. Valid in U.S. Only.
Have you heard of Thunderclap? It is a tool that helps promote wider reach of messages by broadcasting them at the same time through the social media channels of friends or a large group of consumers promoting the same good cause. In the coming weeks, the team at Marie Callender’s will start reaching out to consumers through the Marie Callender’s Facebook page to get them to sign up to be part of the Thunderclap, which will launch on Sunday, 11/30, if they meet their supporter goal.
Think of it like this: a person sees the link to the Comforts From Home Thunderclap page on Facebook, clicks the link, lands on the Marie Callender’s Thunderclap page where they can sign up to support Marie Callender’s CFH through Facebook/Twitter/Tumblr. On 11/30, the pre-populated Marie Callender’s CFH message will be automatically posted on that person’s feed and Marie Callender’s message is seen by thousands and incremental codes are entered!
You can sign up to support this effort RIGHT NOW by visiting https://www.thunderclap.it/pro…. The message, “Help the USO & Marie Callender’s Meals bring the #ComfortsFromHome to troops overseas. Enter the on-pack code today! http://thndr.it/1E3IE6x” will hopefully encourage thousands to enter the on-pack code and therefore drive donations to USO2GO.
