i eat low sugar instant Quaker Oatmeal 4 out of 5 mornings for breakfast while at work.
there are so many flavors varieties that i can't get tired of it. i do get tired of cleaning the oatmeal bowl though, that stuff sticks!
either that or i'm a horrible dishwasher - i'm going to go with the latter on this one. regardless of my bad oatmeal bowl cleaning habit i'm not going to stop eating the stuff. 1. because it's good for you and 2. because quaker oatmeal is doing some really good things to help fight hunger.
i was recently asked to participate in Quaker Oats' 25 bloggers in 25 days start with substance campaign to help the hungry, which in and of itself is a huge honor.
but this is where you come in - i need your help to raise $5,000 for the cleveland food bank!
here's how it works... this contest is going to run for 24 hours on my blog, from 9am central time on february 11th to 9am central time on february 12th - we have a deadline people!
the rules are simple, just follow the steps below:
step one: go to the Quaker start with substance website and click on the link to the Quaker facebook page.
step two: become a fan of Quaker Oatmeal, then scroll down to find and download the pdf image of the Quaker man on the right side of the page
step three: print it out and take a photo or video of yourself with the Quaker man. next, upload the photo to the Quaker facebook page. remember, you must become a fan of Quaker Oats to be able to upload your picture.
step four: come back here and leave a comment with a link to your facebook picture submission.
the blogger with the most reader submissions within the 24 hour period will get the opportunity to select a hunger charity of their choice (the cleveland food bank) to receive a $5,000 donation made to the charity by the Quaker Oats company.
you can find the official contest terms and conditions here. (i.e. keep it G rated with the picture submissions)
also, if you choose to participate (pretty pretty please) i have some coupons to giveaway to randomly selected commenters. and simply because of my participation in the start with substance campaign the cleveland food bank will receive a donation of one case of Quaker Oatmeal - which is a wonderful gift, but don't we want to go for the $5,000!?!?
i thought so.
what are you waiting for? why are you still reading this? go to the facebook page!
i know you aren't working THAT hard right now - please go print out the oh so sexy Quaker man and help out a great and worthy cause.
