I’ll be completely honest. I’m not a huge fan of Times Square; I live my every day life in crowds simply running errands, so I try to avoid the insanity of the tourist hub as much as possible.
I’m also not a fan of packaged, processed foods-especially for my children. So, when I was invited to Times Square to help launch the new Lunchables Fruit campaign, it took some thought and consideration.
I opened up the email again and read some more:
Lunchables is donating up to one million pounds of fresh fruit to Feeding America®, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity. For each fruit photo uploaded to the Lunchables Facebook page, they’ll donate 10 pounds of fresh fruit to Feeding America®, with a pledge of donating up to one million pounds of fruit.
And, I’ll have the opportunity to interview the super darling, father of five NCIS Los Angeles star and my personal hero from Scent of a Woman, Chris O’Donnell.
Intrigued, I accepted and I’m happy that I did. Chris was genuine, kind, and completely charming. A couple of my fellow blogger friends even stepped away from their interviews blushing like school girls. He’s just like that.
It was an absolute treat speaking to him about fatherhood, city life, and his dedication to Feeding America.
The event itself was huge and even I’ll admit, I was caught up in the excitement of the lights and energy in Times Square.
I’m also completely on board with Lunchables campaign to donate up to a million pounds of fruit to Feeding America. You can get involved via their Facebook page HERE.
I’m also happy to see Lunchables tossing their candy options and replacing them with fruit. Yes, even I have been saved in a pinch or two by Lunchables, and I’ll be more inclined to turn to them in the next pinch with the fruit option.
New Lunchables with Fruit provide a full serving of fruit with DOLE® Mandarin Oranges or Pineapple Tidbits in 100% fruit juice. The new line includes: NEW Peanut Butter + Jelly Sandwich; Turkey + Cheddar Cracker Stackers; Ham + American Cracker Stackers and Extra Cheesy Pizza.
I was not compensated for my participation with Lunchables Lunch Combinations, however I was given promotional coupons and branded materials to assist in my coverage. All opinions are my own.
