Gifts That Give Back Giveaway!
Last year, we started our own little BGSK Thanksgiving tradition by giving back to you, and the community, with some tasty treats from Baking For Good. This year, we’re taking our philanthropic sweet tooth to the next level and giving away a whole host of charitable prizes (most of them chocolate-y).
Thanksgiving is also our site’s anniversary, so we also want to thank you, our readers, for sticking with us for the last 3 years (!!). The 2010-2011 year has been a very eventful one for us: since last T-Day, we’ve introduced our book to the world, launched a little sibling site, forsaken gluten, and gotten engaged.
To celebrate, read on for a chance to win some of our favorite gifts that give back of the season:
Chan Luu, Indian Aventurine Single Wrap Bracelet on Olive Leather and Pink Cord
Fabulous jewelry designer Chan Luu introduced her bracelet for breast cancer earlier this fall as art of a Think Pink, Live Green campaign–with the idea that there are many easy and practical steps women can take to reduce their risk of breast cancer, and that eating greener, healthier, and better is one major way. $140,000 has already been raised at Breastcancer.org. Environmental advocate and cookbook author Laurie David has been helping Chan campaign for the cause, and we have her to thank for this generous donation!
Baking For Good, Fall Sampler
In September 2009, our friend Emily Dubner started Baking For Good, a gifting site for sweet treats that donates 15% of every purchase to a cause of the customer’s choosing.Today, we are giving away a gift box, her Fall Sampler, which comes filled with gingerbread cookies and chai sandwiches! The winner will not only get the treats, though. Whoever wins will also get to pick the charity that Baking For Good will donate the 15% to.
sweetriot, riotBar bundle
Sweetriot is a fair trade, socially responsible chocolate company focusing its efforts in Latin America. These newly introduced riotBars are their first organic, Fair Trade certified collection.In addition to winning a bunch of bars, the rioters have offered you guys a discount code: bgskriot.
