If there’s something that makes a regular day extra special for parents and kids alike, it’s going out for a nice dinner. And when I want to treat my boys to a night out, Boston Pizza is our favourite destination. I love the variety of pizza, pasta and burgers available and the boys love choosing their favourite main dish, side, drink and dessert off the Kids Menu. And right now, heading to Boston Pizza just got even better because the hugely popular Boston Pizza Kids Cards are back!
So how does a Boston Pizza Kids Card work? It’s simple! For a minimum $5 donation, families receive a Boston Pizza Kids Card good for five free Kids Meals at Boston Pizza, a total value of $35. Even better, if you register your Kids Card with a MyBP account, the new free program available at BostonPizza.com or the Boston Pizza iPhone app, you’ll receive a sixth free Kids Meal as well. That’s a whole lot of delicious for one low price!
But while the great value of the Boston Pizza Kids Card is pretty appealing, it’s the purpose behind it that really makes this such a wonderful initiative. All proceeds from the sale of the Kids Cards go towards the Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects program! This initiative partners with organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Kids Help Phone, Live Different and the Rick Hansen Foundation to mentor kids and help them reach their full potential.
Personally, I’m going to be getting Boston Pizza Kids Cards for all my nieces and nephews as well as my own boys. When such a small donation not only lets my kids enjoy some of their favourite meals more often but also supports such a great cause, stocking up on cards for everyone in my family just makes sense! Cards can be purchased either at your local Boston Pizza restaurant or online and I have to admit, being able to buy the cards online in the blink of an eye just makes this program even more appealing to a busy mom like me!
I’ve always been passionate about supporting my boys’ development, though their complaining when I ask them to clean their rooms or finish their dinner may get tiring at times! Still, overall I feel confident that I’m doing the best I can to give them the life skills they’ll need to be successful and happy adults. It’s sometimes easy to forget that not every child has the same support system in place and that’s why the Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects program is so important. Pick up your Boston Pizza Kids Card before November 2, 2014 and support a great cause in a very tasty way!
