Recipe For Giving - $500 Giveaway - CLOSED
My husband and I have a dream to take in the homeless and serve them at our house on Thanksgiving; we would love to do that, but haven't been able to manage that financially just yet. If we were miraculously to win this gift card--there are so many generous and worthy people out there who deserve to win it!--we could take in at least a few or do something else that's really tangible to help families with less food than we have. It would be a great example to our toddler. Our giving would not be faith-based, as are most food- donation programs, because there are people of so many different (or no) religions who are hurting, we don't think it's fair to exclude anyone.That said, we help the community as often as we can by donating food (and clothes & toiletries & baby items) to the local food pantry, giving food whenever the girl or boy scouting organizations do food collections, and by sharing any garden leftovers (we grow as many of our own fruits & vegetables as we can) with friends, family, and co-workers.Thanks so much for the chance; GLTA!Leighluckyleigh(AT)frontier(DOT)com
My husband and I have very different talents. He loves to teach and mentor and he does so through leading a small group, and used to help out in Children's Church. I love children, but this is not my area of expertise. I feel I am more gifted in the kitchen, so I get to work with the Meal Ministry to make meals for new mommies recovering from delivery, or individuals recovering from surgery or treatments. It's great to be able to bless other families in this way!
...and I am very excited to announce this giveaway. The "Recipe for Giving" contest benefits Cookies For Kid's Cancer, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for pediatric cancer treatment and research. All you have to do is leave a comment with an idea or a "recipe" that shows how you and your family give back to your community through food, and the winner and will receive a $500 American Express gift card.
Contest Ends 6/10/2010, and if you don't leave an email I cannot contact you if you win, so leave an EMAIL!!!
