It’s been a few months since we had a Take Care With Peanuts animated short. Today we have a new one, and guess what? It’s the great pumpkin, Charlie Brown! In celebration of autumn, Lucy teaches Snoopy how to compost in this month’s animated short aimed at teaching us to take care of the Earth.
Snoopy and the gang have been working on a global initiative called “Take Care with Peanuts”, which focuses on three vital messages—Take Care of Yourself (focused on physical and mental wellness), Take Care of Each Other (community and philanthropy) and Take Care of the Earth (nature and sustainability)—inspiring a major worldwide philanthropic endeavor. Projects include a partnership with the SOS Mata Atlântica Foundation, with a shared goal of planting 75,000 trees before 2025, and a collaboration with the Foundation for Hospital Art (FFHA), with whom they’ll donate 70 Snoopy and Woodstock murals to hospitals on six contents.
Pumpkin season is here! Learn about composting from Lucy to help your garden grow better than ever before and Take Care of the Earth!
The Take Care With Peanuts initiative, is a global multi-year enterprise encouraging everyone to “take care”—of themselves, each other, and the Earth. The initiative draws on themes of wellness, community, and environmental engagement found throughout Charles Schulz’s revered comic strip, and includes philanthropic outreach, social messaging, and educational activities. Children and communities are at the heart of each activation. As part of the campaign, Peanuts has created eleven 60 second social media messages, one each month, centred around a different theme to remind us to press ‘Pause’ and appreciate ourselves, those around us, and this place we call home all to inspire and motivate action. The video messages are available in 10 different languages.
You can find some activities for the young ones HERE.
