Create Your Day Challenge: Raising Funds for Share Our Strength
Posted Feb 01 2010 10:02pm
I’ve been working with Quaker Oats—not literally working with the oats, I’m not much of a sculptor—to help support the Share Our Strength charity, which is working to end childhood hunger in America. Some of my favorite bloggers are participating as well (yes, we are being compensated, and as you know I only accept projects I believe in supporting) and I’m looking forward to seeing what they come up with. They had some pretty big events and challenges coming up and Quaker helped them create some yummy concoctions to anchor tummies in advance. Seriously, people, there are a lot of things I never thought of putting in oatmeal that sounds awesome. The one they created for me? I could have predicted some of it but there are a couple twists I never would have considered and now I’m drooling over them.
I encourage all of you to “CREATE YOUR DAY” by going to WWW.QUAKEROATS.COM/CREATEYOURDAY and discovering an oatmeal creation that will best help you tackle the day that lies ahead. When you do, come back and tell me about it in a comment. I need all the ideas I can get, and have already spent more time than I’ll admit playing on the site. *cough*
For every bowl of oatmeal created on this site, GoodBite.com & Quaker will donate $1.00 to “Share Our Strength”, a charity dedicated to ending childhood hunger, up to $25,000. That’s a lofty goal, but with your help we can do it. $25,000 will go a long way to helping Share Our Strength continue their important work, and will add to the Great Karma Bucket in the Sky. We’ve all benefited at one time or another from others’ generosity, and might offer this as a reminder to the Universe that we’re grateful and willing to share with others.
