I love charity. If you read my blog then you know this about me. I want to help make a difference in the world and now that I have found my blog and my purpose I’m doing it. There is no more I’m not big enough to make a difference but what I’m really learning about myself is that I never was too small. I’ve always been able to help the world, the US, my own community.
Now with Social media getting companies to make donations has never been easier! For Example:
This year, Campbell’s and FFA invite you to experience 10 nominated farms with a unique story and barn in need of preservation. For every vote cast on or before Jan. 5, 2010, Campbell’s will donate $1 to FFA (up to $250,000). The five barns with the most votes will be announced in January 2010 as the winners of this year’s Help Grow Your Soup™ program. Participants can vote on which barn they feel needs restoration the most through the Help Grow Your Soup™ web site or Facebook fan page.
Every Vote Counts. Join Campbell’s commitment to keep these farms alive and running by helping spread the word. Become a fan of the Help Grow Your Soup™ Facebook fan page and meet all of the nominated farms, then vote on which barn you think needs restoration the most.
Campbell launched the Help Grow Your Soup™ campaign in 2008 to demonstrate the company’s support for the future of American farming. The program is intended to help people reconnect with the source of the food they eat everyday, including those ingredients that go into Campbell’s condensed soup. To date, it has committed $500,000 to champion education programs and help students receive the training they need to become future leaders of the agriculture industry. Together, Campbell and FFA have already restored five barns across the country and planted community gardens in Detroit, Atlanta, Chicago, New York and Camden, N.J.
From cultivating unique vegetable seeds, to working with farmers to develop and promote sustainable agricultural, Campbell shares its own rich farming legacy on the Help Grow Your Soup Web site, too.
