Kellogg's Frosted Flakes® "Plant a Seed"

Super Bowl Sunday. The parties. Amazing facilities and equipment. The $3 million ads. It's one of America's most popular events. A sport doesn’t get much more extravagant.

But, that extravagance does not extend to the many community sporting fields across the nation. Especially now, due to the struggling economy, maintenance funds have been cut for these fields. That is where Kellogg's Frosted Flakes® comes in.

According the Frosted Flakes® Website, "Kellogg's Frosted Flakes® believes that every kid should have a place to be active and play hard so they can be their very best." They want to help rebuild playing fields across the U.S.

If you know of an athletic field (outdoor baseball, soccer, football, lacrosse, hockey field or basketball court) that is in disrepair, consider nominating it for the Kellogg's Frosted Flakes "Plant a Seed" promotion. The "Plant a Seed" promotion will be featured in a Super Bowl commercial spot today - watch for it while you are viewing the big game. The promotion period runs through 3/31/09. Learn more, fill out the registration form and nominate a field at

(Thanks to MomCentral for the head's up on this promotion.)

Hi -- I just wanted to let you know that I finally publicly acknowledged the Butterfly Award you gave me back in January on my blog Life is a Little One and More. Just wanted to let you know. And thank again for it! I'm sorry it took me so long to do something about! : )
