You are probably wondering why I’m giving away yogurt without making fun of it.  Well, it’s because of childhood obesity.  I mean I want it to not be.  Some kids are too obese.  Recently, Dannon Danimals® launched a national initiative called Rally for Recess.  Five schools have the opportunity to win new playground equipment worth $20,000.  And that will buy a lot of…parachutes and those red kick balls and whatever else they give kids to exercise with.  Now through February 8, 2012 purchasers can find codes on Danimals® packaging and enter and register their school online. The top school in each of the five categories (based on size) with the most codes registered wins! (official rules).

Now, I am not getting compensated for this (I must be doing it wrong) but I do get to give away a six pack of the yogurt or a… *does that looking down my nose at the paper like I can’t see it*…soccer ball and a draw-string bag that say Danimals® on them.  If it were me, I wouldn’t know what to pick.  Can’t eat a soccer ball…can only kick yogurt a few times.  But what you win is your problem.  All I have to do is find out which one of you win it.  So from now until September 23rd (at night sometime) if you leave a comment in this post you are entered.  I would PREFER that your comment include an alternative way for kids to stay skinny (make dogs chase them, shake weights, etc.) but I can’t force you.  But think about this kid and realize that you need to help save these kids, regardless of how funny they are.

So good luck.  If you have a school in your neighborhood, check out the contest.  And if you don’t then you must be some weird creep so just keep walkin’.

Update – this was won by “got3kids”

I was in no way compensated for this post.  The prize was supplied by Dannon.
