Thanksgiving is a time for friends and family to gather around a gorgeously decorated table full of freshly prepared foods. But not every family is fortunate enough to have that experience. That’s why Peppa Pig is ensuring that no kid goes hungry this Thanksgiving, thanks to her partnership with No Kid Hungry.
Fans of the cartoon will remember Peppa Pig recently traveled across the pond and visited the U.S.A. in a recent four-part special on Nickelodeon. Peppa and her family won a chance to star in a Hollywood blockbuster, and set off on a sightseeing cross-country road trip adventure. Upon visiting the U.S., Peppa learned about many American traditions, including Thanksgiving, and wanted to share her message of being thankful with her fans.
That’s why Peppa Pig teamed up with No Kid Hungry so that all children have a reason to have an attitude of gratitude this Thanksgiving. No Kid Hungry is dedicated to ending childhood hunger, because as many as 13 million children in the United States struggle with hunger and food insecurity.
How is the adorable little oinker planning to give back this Thanksgiving? Well, as part of her travels, Peppa will experience her first Thanksgiving where she’ll learn about all the different traditions celebrated, including prepping a Thanksgiving dinner, spending time with family and friends, and of course – the importance of thankfulness and giving back to those in need. To that end, Peppa Pig is donating a minimum of $50,000 to No Kid Hungry so that her fans can understand the importance of thankfulness.
But Peppa can’t do it alone. She’s asking families to start their own new holiday tradition so that children everywhere can help Peppa raise money, and understand why being grateful is such a good thing. In addition to donating a minimum of $50K to No Kid Hungry, Peppa Pig will donate an additional $5 for each use of the hashtag #PeppaInThePantry on Instagram between 11/12/21 and 11/26/21. Kids can show how Peppa is playing a big part in their Thanksgiving, whether it’s helping to set the table, prepare meals, or in other ways that show true thankfulness. The pics can include a Peppa Pig plush toy, a drawing, or even just an episode playing on the TV in the background. Simply share the image to Instagram (kids must get parental approval) from now until November 26.
Thanksgiving is a time to slow down, spend memorable moments with family, and adopt an attitude of gratitude. And when your child teams up with Peppa Pig, anything (including ending childhood hunger) is a possibility.
