A social media plea for B.C. boy with autism looking for limited-edition Star Wars Kraft Dinner has captured the hearts of people around the world and has also captured Kraft’s attention.
Six-year-old Everett Botwright will only eat certain foods, one of them being the limited-edition pasta.
Hundreds of boxes have made their way to his home in Nanaimo following a plea from his dad.
And now Kraft has joined the list of people wanting to help.
Av Maharaj with Kraft Canada says they’ve dropped off 12 cases of the pasta, together with a special proposition.
“We actually offered Everett the opportunity if he wished to help us choose the next promotional shape for KD. So what we’re going to do at a later date is send to him some shapes and ask him to help us choose which shapes he likes and we’re going to see if we can put that into production.”
He says the company is also donating $10,000 to Autism Canada.
Maharaj says Everett’s family was very appreciative of everything people have done for them.
