$25 Giveaway!!!

I love a good giveaway, don't you? I love a giveaway for a good cause even more! Of course I was thrilled when MyBlogSpark contacted me with a $25.00 giveaway on behalf of Sam's Club and General Mills.

As all of you probably (hopefully) know, October is breast cancer awareness month. First of all, before we get to the giveaway excitement, you should know a few details about how you can help support breast cancer research.

For 5 years, General Mills has partnered with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Foundation to bring breast cancer support to local communities, and this year they are making their annual donation of $2 million to the foundation to advance breast cancer research and support education and community outreach projects.

Currently, Sam's Clubs stores are featuring exclusive pink packaging on participating General Mills products. You can purchase specially-marked General Mills products at your local Sam’s Club and help decide how half of that contribution will be donated by voting at from now until April 14, 2012.

So if you have a Sam's Club card, you can donate to cancer research simply by purchasing the products you probably already eat.

One lucky reader will receive a Sam's Club Pink Promotion Prize containing a $25.00 Sam's Club gift card. Even if you don't have a Sam's Club card, enter this giveaway anyway and, if you win, you can donate it to someone who does.

Here's how to enter (Six chances to win):

1. Leave a comment here. Let me know, in your comment, which General Mills products you'd be excited to see in special pink packaging.
