Teen star Keke Palmer has teamed up with General Mills cereal to encourage teen girls ages 14 to 17 to eat breakfast each morning as part of the “I<3 BKFST” campaign. The campaign not only helps to promote healthy eating, but also plans to help foster girls in need.
I <3 BKFST not only intends to educate teen girls about the benefits of eating breakfast, but the campaign will help a foster home for girls.
Teens who click “like” on Facebook.com/IHEARTBKFST and then pledge to eat breakfast will trigger a General Mills donation of 25 cents for every pledge made through Dec. 22.
The pledges will prompt General Mills to donate at least $5,000, and a maximum of $10,000, to Grace House, a foster home for girls in need located in Birmingham, Ala. (Read More)
