My kids love baking or maybe it is more about the decorating that interests them. Rice Krispie treats are a great way to do both. Now your sweet treat creations can also benefit children this holiday season with the Kellogg’s Rice Krispies* & The Salvation Army NEW Treats for Toys Holiday Program.

“Part of the magic of the holiday season for children comes from unwrapping a new toy,” says Captain Les Marshall, Public Relations and Development Secretary for The Salvation Army in Canada and Bermuda.“Unfortunately, not every Canadian child gets to experience this. That’s why we’re thrilled to partner with Kellogg’s Rice Krispies on the Treats for Toys program, and spread festive joy to children across Canada.”

From now until December 22, 2013 your Rice Krispies treat can turn into a toy for a child who might otherwise not receive a gift this year.

How? Simply create a toy-shaped treat from Rice Krispies cereal then upload a photo of your creation to For each toy-shaped treat photo uploaded Rice Krispies will donate $20 to The Salvation Army, to a maximum of $30,0000. The Salvation Army will use the donations to buy toys for children in need.
