I recently attended the launch event for Lunchables Million Page Mission and I would like to encourage everyone to join the mission! Lori Loughlin of the new "90210" on the CW has teamed up with Lunchables and First Book for the release of a free children's book entitled "Adventures in the Stars". (This book can be downloaded for free at the link at the end of my post!) I brought Chip and Lulu to the launch event and had the opportunity to speak with Lori about this amazing cause. First Book is a non-profit literacy organization committed to providing children in needy communities with the opportunity to read and own their own books. For every parent who pledges to read 100 pages together with their kids during the back-to-school season, the Lunchables team will donate $1 to First Book.
The event included Lori reading "Adventures in the Stars" to a group of school children from a local public school here in Los Angeles. Lori wrote the forward for the book and told me how much reading means to her and her two daughters. I also learned that when school kids in underprivileged areas are asked to bring in a book from home, they often bring in the phone book, because it is the only book in their house. This was a big wake up call to me. The future of our country depends on our ability to communicate. Reading is a huge part of communication. When you read, you become a better writer. When you write, you express yourself to the world. Our society depends on the exchange of information. Without it, you fall into the cracks and there really is no way out. So, please, everyone, now through October 31, join the Million Page Mission! and let's get books into the hands of these children!
At the event, I was also pleased to learn that Lunchables has come out with Lunchables Sensible Solution line which has 14 products that contain fewer calories, lower fat, lower saturated fat and lower sodium than the regular Lunchables.
Okay, I adore you on more levels than you can comprehend. I copied and pasted these ingredients from the website for the newer healthier shit food that Kraft is pimping:
If you love your kids, don't. Just don't.
