We have always been huge fans of Sunbites, a snack which the children love just as much as I do myself, and something I have popped inside the children’s lunch boxes over the years. So it’s always lovely when a brand we really love launches a campaign that we totally believe in, and the #GoodGrows campaign is one we couldn’t wait to get on board with.
Sunbites believe that there is a little bit of taste good and do good in every bite, and the Sunbites #GoodGrows campaign is working to give back to society and deliver goodness around the world. The Sunbites team has partnered with CARE International to launch the ‘Light Her Path’ initiative, aimed at improving the lives of women and children around the world by providing the education they deserve. This brilliant initiative helps in lots of ways, including building eco-friendly learning centres that are powered by solar panels.
Sunbites believes that one small act of goodness can inspire others to do the same, that #GoodGrows, and that it’s possible to seed some goodness into Britain. And we were more than happy to help them do exactly that.
I decided to ask the children what we could do to perform a good deed together, and their suggestions were utterly adorable. “We could do washing up for people!” said Megan. “My could give cuddles” said Harry, “My give the best cuddles!”. “We could give our toys to little boys and girls who don’t have any?” said Eva. And with my heart bursting with pride, we set about collecting up all of the toys that, whilst my children still enjoyed playing with, would be far better in the hands of those who had nothing.
When we had collected up all of the toys we loaded them into the car and drove to our local women’s refuge where we handed them over to very grateful hands. Seeing the children’s faces as they handed over some of their much loved toys I was sure there would be tears, but instead they all looked at me with big eyes, far wiser than I give them credit for, and told me, “We have lots of toys don’t we Mummy? It must be really sad to have none.” And as we drove home, a lump in my throat, I knew that we had not only done a wonderful thing for other children, but that my children had learned a valuable lesson in that moment.
