I received an email this morning from Vegetarian Times about So Delicious® Dairy Free frozen dessert with Brees Dream Foundation, so I decided to look into it. I love finding mutually beneficial opportunities to donate to good causes, especially for those who don't have that extra cash to give. In this case you get to eat delicious , and for each non-dairy goodie you buy between July 1st and August 31st So Delicious will donate a portion of the net sales (0.75% ) to the Foundation. There is no cap and they expect the donations will reach at least 50,000.00. It will depend on how much we buy.
I can vouch for So Delicious: since I don't eat chocolate, I have only tried their Soy vanilla frozen dessert (which is yummy), but some of their other flavors sound incredible. Chocolate Obsession. Mint Marble Fudge. They've got sandwiches and fudge bars. The also have a line of coconut milk products, including a coconut milk ice cream in coconut, vanilla and mango that I have tried, all of which are to die for. I've also tried their strawberry coconut milk yogurt drink, and their soy and coconut milk. And the great thing is you can get coupons on their website.
The campaign is only good on the frozen treats, but the other products are worth a try if you are lactose intolerant, or choose not to eat dairy.
I decided to check out because I know nothing about it. It was apparently founded by New Orleans Quarterback Drew Brees and his wife Brittany
Brittany and Drew Brees and the Brees Dream Foundation have collectively committed and/or contributed more than $11,000,000 to charitable causes and academic institutions in the New Orleans, San Diego and West Lafayette/Purdue communities. Some of the Brees Dream Foundation’s most recent commitments include
What I like about them is that they have donated to everything from the arts to the military . I couldn't find any information on any of charity ranking websites, but that doesn't really mean anything. Drew seems to be one of the good guys .
In case you are wondering, this is not a paid sponsorship, I just want to share a good thing.
