Con Agra and Dates to Diapers:
ConAgra Foods, in partnership with Feeding America, the nation’s leading hunger-relief organization, has launched the Child Hunger Ends Here (CHEH) Neighborhood Rally campaign. Through this effort, we can help feed kids at risk of hunger by coming together to host and attend events that support Feeding America.
Together, we can turn a bake sale, church rummage sale, food drive, or any other event, into a CHEH Neighborhood Rally, simply by donating a portion (or even all) of the proceeds from the event to Feeding America. They’ve even given us tips and ideas on how to host our very own neighborhood rallies, specifically for this cause.

Bumble Bee Foods Breast Cancer:
Bumble Bee Foods rebranded its interactive health and wellness program to promote a healthy lifestyle to more people. The program, formerly BeeWell Miles, is now BeeWell for Life. Through the program Web site www.beewellforlife.com, other online communities and on-the-ground events, BeeWell for Life provides resources and tools to encourage consumers toward a healthy, active lifestyle.
Participants in BeeWell for Life who log the miles they walk, run or bike are eligible for various prizes and help make a difference for Breast Cancer Network of Strength. For each mile logged through www.beewellforlife.com between now and October 31, 2010, Bumble Bee will donate 15¢ per mile. When one million miles are logged, the company will make an additional $50,000 contribution, for a total donation of $200,000.
In addition to the rebrand, this week marks the start of the “Bee at the Walk” contest on www.beeatthewalk.com or www.beewellforlife.com.

Users can vote for their favorite submissions and based on those votes 5 finalists will be chosen. A panel of Bumble Bee & Network of Strength judges will then make a final review of the finalists and select the winner. The grand prize will include:
· All expense paid trip for 4 to Chicago
· Meet and greet with the NOS team
· Tour of the FTD corporate location
· Bouquet of roses provided by FTD
· Flip camera (or similar video recorder) to document the experience
