In August of 2009, I participated with many bloggers in ShopRite Partners In Caring "Blog It Forward To Fight Hunger" Campaign. As a result of the combined efforts of both bloggers and readers, 3,000 boxes of cereal were donated to local food banks in ShopRite’s trading area! Thank you to all who commented on MY blog, as each comment counted for one donation!
A limited-edition Honey Nut Cheerios box featuring the photo mosaic of fellow "Bloggers In Caring" was available the week of January 24th for purchase, exclusively at ShopRite. The image of the box can be seen above. Very cool!
And here is something even MORE cool. ShopRite Partners In Caring, together with General Mills, has launched a video contest: "Expressions Of Hunger." This contest asks for videos to be submitted using song, poetry, dance or dramatic reading that creatively express the plight of the hungry or offer solutions to the issue of hunger. Up to six grand prize winners will have their stories and photos featured on a special-edition Cheerios box available exclusively at ShopRite stores in September 2010!
Go to www.expressionsofhunger.com for the complete contest rules. The contest is open for submissions from January 1 through March 1, 2010.
