A way to give back

Hello friends!

I have read that many of you hope to find ways to “give back” as part of your goals for this new year. Please consider purchasing Musselman’s applesauce in the month of January to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation! Every applesauce purchase sends 10 cents to the NBCF, which “is dedicated to raising awareness of breast cancer through education and by providing mammograms for those in need.”


Last year, I wrote this post about my sweet friend Erica and posted a video featuring Peggy Fleming who spoke about her breast cancer experience and explained how this campaign from Musselman’s is going to help the foundation. According to an email I received, this effort raised $85,000 for the NBCF last year!

All you have to do is buy Musselman’s Natural or Healthy Picks applesauce. The Natural is my favorite but I have tried all of the Healthy Picks line and they are tasty as well! Applesauce is a good way to get in a fruit serving and on a personal note, this makes more sense for me to buy than a bucket of chicken.

Thanks!

2010 Walk for Farm Animals

On Saturday, October 16th, I joined several other people from our community (including some fellow members of the Louisville Vegetarian Club) in the very first Louisville Walk for Farm Animals, benefitting Farm Sanctuary, an animal shelter/charity based out of Watkins Glen, New York (with two farm locations, in New York & California).

The 2.5 mile route took us through downtown Louisville, past several busy areas, including the new KFC Yum! Center. As we walked along, we each carried a sign, some with just words and some with super cute animal pictures.

We also had pamphlets and information to share with people (I even left a few about the benefits of a vegetarian diet at the Diabetes Walk which took place that same morning).

We also got to wear these cute T-shirts! 🙂

About a month before the walk, we held a bake sale at Eternal Health Yoga, where we raised over $230 for Farm Sanctuary in one weekend! By the time the walk was over, we had raised over $1,000 for this organization!

We were very pleased with the turnout (around 40 people signed up!) and the amount of money raised, especially considering this was our first year doing this walk. I can’t wait to do this walk again next year!
