Easter PSA: Save chocolate bunnies, buy toys instead!

bunny Easter PSA: Save chocolate bunnies, buy toys instead!

Mattel’s clever “Save the Bunny” campaign this month features celebrities sharing the plight of the dwindling chocolate bunny population.  These earnest spokespeople urge the public to protect this endangered species by filling their Easter baskets with TOYS instead!

Still stocking up your Easter baskets for the weekend? Consider adding some quality “brain candy” in the form of games and puzzles for some sugar-free fun.  Do it for your loved ones – and, perhaps more importantly, for the chocolate bunnies.  As one celeb reminds us, “their little chocolate lives are in your hands!”

An Easter Treat for Our Troops

Recently ThinkFun was contacted by Sara Dutton, the founder of Bear Hugs from Mom.  Sara’s own son served two tours of duty in Iraq, and she saw first-hand how uplifting it is for soldiers to receive care packages from home.  Sara founded this non-profit to provide packages and moral support for an entire platoon throughout their deployment.

Easter baskets sent to Afghanistan

 

With the Easter holiday approaching, Sara asked ThinkFun to help provide a fun gift to include in the Easter baskets she was assembling.  We were thrilled to help with a donation of Fifteen Puzzles, a clever brainteaser that fits in a pocket with no loose pieces!

Sara recently let us know that the baskets went out to the men and women of the 514th Support Maintenance Company at Camp Dehdadi in Afghanistan.  We are honored to have the opportunity to bring a smile to these heroes and to support the wonderful work Bear Hugs from Mom is doing!

Happy Easter to you and yours!
