A Joy to Share

KINDER® is sharing the joy again this holiday season by supporting the Children’s Miracle Network. The Children’s Miracle Network have been helping to save and improve the lives of children by raising funds for children’s hospitals since 1983.

In the video below, the Martin family tell their story of how The Children’s Miracle Network were there when Leah needed them. All you need to do is share this video and KINDER® will automatically donate $1.00 (up to $5000) to Children’s Miracle Network on your behalf.

KINDER® is celebrating the ‘A Joy To Share‘ program with its Facebook community by giving away 7,500 coupons to enjoy their delicious Kinder® Mini Eggs*, for free! This giveaway began yesterday November 26th and the day’s 750 coupons were scooped up almost immediately! It’s OK, there’s still time to share the joy as there are another 9 chances. 750 coupons will be released each day at 12pm ET. Be quick off the mark if you’d like to bag a bag! And while you’re there don’t forget to share that video!

Just a note to remind allergy sufferers that since KINDER® MINI EGGS contain a delicious hazelnut centre, they’re not nut-free.

A Joy to Share

My cousin is celebrating a big birthday this Easter. Her 50th lands on Easter Sunday and it gives our family the perfect excuse for a get together and celebration. Eighteen of us from three generations will gather for a slap up Easter lunch at the local farm restaurant.

Being so far away from my family for 10 years I missed a lot of family occasions (some joyful: my Dad’s 70th and my parents’ Ruby wedding anniversary, some not so: the funerals of my Nan and my uncle). I missed my cousins’ children growing up and my extended family also missed the birth of my babies and only saw them a handful of times so this will mean a lot to me.

This holiday our family is lucky enough to be together, but other families are less fortunate and not just because they’ve decided to live 5000 miles away from their loved ones. When you learn about moms like Dominique who’s baby Liam was in NICU for 92 days you realise just how fortunate you are:

“He was on oxygen, he was tube fed, and he spent his early days in an incubator to keep him in an environment that was dark and warm. It’s important that babies born as early as Liam are handled as little as possible, so it was 3 weeks before we were able to hold him for the first time – and what an amazing moment that was!”

This Easter KINDER® is partnering with Children’s Miracle Network to encourage us to value the time and experiences shared between mother and child – not just around the holidays but all year long.

On the KINDER® Canada Facebook page moms like Dominique who have been affected by and benefited from the work of the Children’s Miracle Network will be sharing their heartfelt stories and experiences. Visit; read the stories; share your own. It’s a chance to reflect and teach your loved ones about what it means to help others and support those less fortunate this joyful season.

The Kinder ‘A Joy to Share’ campaign is supporting Children’s Miracle Network member hospitals, and you can too, by purchasing KINDER® Seasonal Easter Products like the KINDER® Easter Egg Hunt Kit and the new KINDER MIX, which comes with an adorable plush toy.

We’ve decided that it would be ‘A Joy to Share’ some more KINDER® SURPRISE® eggs with our blog readers. For a chance to win a 24 pack of KINDER® SURPRISE® eggs, leave a comment below telling us how you plan to celebrate Easter with your loved ones.
