After my parents divorced we were super poor and my mom’s grocery budget was super tight. During the summer she would purchase blue box Kraft Mac & Cheese for my brother and I to eat for lunch. At three for a dollar when it was on sale, it made for a super affordable lunch.
My brother jokes about how much of it we ate as kids, but I still have a fond place in my heart for all those blue boxes of mac and cheese. I think that’s why I was so excited when I saw that Kraft had launched an iPad app that lets you donate noodles to Feeding America by simply creating virtual macaroni art.
I purchased an iPad last week before I left for BlogHer. One of the first apps I downloaded after I got home was the one by Kraft. Last night Cady, James, and I sat around the living room creating virtual macaroni art to pin to our “frig.”
For every noodle we used in our art Kraft donates 10 noodles to Feeding America.* The kids loved making their designs and were arguing over who would get to make the next one. After you pin your art to your virtual frig you can share it online. Kraft will be selecting designs to post on their Facebook and Pinterest pages. Although after checking out their Pinterest page I’m pretty sure that none of our designs will be selected.
Do you have an iPad? If so please consider downloading the Kraft Dinner Not Art app. It is a great iPad app for kids. It is free, fun to play with, and donates food to a great cause.
*Until 12/31/12, for every digital noodle used in saved art, KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese will donate 10 noodles to Feeding America®, up to 110,000,000 noodles. A maximum of xxxx digital noodles can be used per any single piece of saved art, for a maximum XXX noodle donation per piece of saved art.
