You’re cutting up your cereal boxes already for those prized Box Tops for Education, literally as good as cash for schools. You might as well clip one more thing while the scissors are out.

Now through mid-October, specially marked boxes of Cheerios have a Send Cheer to Teachers postcard to express appreciation for a teacher now or in one’s past. Simply mail it to the person you want to send cheer to.

Better yet, though, the company is teaming up with Box Tops for Education for the Send Cheer to Teachers sweepstakes. Enter a code from the inside of Cheerios boxes at btfe.com/sendcheer to not only earn your school a bonus Box Top but a chance to win five prizes, including thousands of dollars in school supplies. The deadline is July 17.
