We love hearing all your stories about the changes you are making and how your own REAL food journeys are changing your lives. And how you are using your experience and knowledge to inspire others to do the same! You continue to be so generous with your stories, support and encouragement...
as a thank you, we want to pass this generosity on to some of your favorite organizations!
For the first 25 people who provide a recommendation in the comments below, we will donate $100 to YOUR recommended charitable organization!
What's the catch?
There is none!
Based on your recommendations, we will donate $2,500!
The only requirements are:
- It needs to be a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
- We would love to donate to organizations that are doing something to encourage healthy lifestyles!
So, act fast!
- If you know the EIN # (employer identification number), that would be helpful (you can quickly find it using the GuideStar search engine). If you don't have it (or don't have time to look it up), feel free to go ahead and reserve your spot, and then you can come back and update it with the EIN.
- If you want us to mention your name in the gift, please let us know.
- If you want the gift to be in memory or in honor of someone, please include this info in your comment.
Why are we doing this?
Your stories continue to inspire us, and we want to give back and help you support charitable organizations that are advancing the mission of helping people be as healthy as possible. You are probably involved with organizations in your community who are doing great things to help people live healthfully and we want to honor you by helping to support those organizations.
While $100 isn't life-changing, we all know that these organizations welcome any and all support, especially in the environment we are currently in.
Believe it or not, this is our 6th year doing this and we are so humbled and blessed...we will have reached $15,000 in donations after this year! Over the last four years, your recommendations resulted in donations to organizations such as:
