To participate in the Quaker Oatmeal Create Your Day program, I was compensated for writing this post regarding my Quaker experience. Quaker did not tell me what type of creations I should make nor did they require me to use any specific ingredients.
I love Oatmeal, heck.. I love food. If you were in the Niche Panel at Blissdom, you heard me say that.. multiple times
When I’m presented the opportunity to combine my love of food, my love of writing and my love for charity.. It’s like the trifecta of awesome. Quaker has once again thrown down the gauntlet and challenged us with the opportunity to have some fun and donate to amazing charity, Share Our Strength, by using our love of applications, social networking and food (hello.. another trifecta).
Quaker has created an application that allows you to Create Your Day. Go to their website and create the perfect breakfast for you, for a friend, your child’s teacher, your husband.. whomever you’d like. Using their application, answer a few questions and it creates a fun card with the ideal oatmeal to get them revved and ready for whatever lies ahead of them that day. It then allows you to share it via email or facebook. For every dish that you create (4 per day) through March 31, 2010… they will donate $1 up to $25,000 whoops… $25,o0o has already been donated!!! So they’ve upped the ante to $50,000.
Let’s make Quaker eat that $50,000 and up it to $75,000.
Please help me in this. No child, no family, no person in this country should go hungry.
Please accept this challenge. Take 5 minutes out of your day, once, twice, four times a day and have some fun and help Quaker help others.
What’s your favorite way to eat Oatmeal? The picture at the top of the post? That’s my oatmeal: Brown Sugar, Greek Yogurt and Walnuts with a hint of skim milk and butter.
Quaker has offered delicious and fun Create Your Day Starter Kits (Quaker Instant Oatmeal and a Place Setting) to two of my readers. To be entered:
