Ending hunger with chocolate

By Mir
December 22, 2008

This may be my favorite contest ever. Because it involves a great cause, and we’re going to have one hundred winners.

You read that right. One hundred winners.

Here’s the deal: Ferrero (purveyor of delicious chocolates) has teamed up with Share Our Strength, and together they’ve launched Share Something Sweet to help get the word out about their hunger relief efforts. If you log on there and send someone an e-card, Ferrero (who has already donated $150k to hunger relief) will donate another $1, up to $10,000 as part of this campaign. And if you join the Ferrero Facebook Page, they’ll donate another $1 for that, too.

All of which is, obviously, completely awesome.

And the cherry on top of all of this is that Ferrero is also donating 100 Christmas tree boxes of Ferrero Rondnoir chocolates for giveaway here at Want Not. I’ve set up an online form to take addresses, and if you want a box of chocolate you should go fill it out through this link to get one. (Your information will be used for shipping your prize and then discarded.) The first 100 respondents will receive a free box of chocolate! If I’ve configured it correctly, it will only take 100 responses and then report that it’s full.

Whether or not you get a prize, here, please go send an e-card to help raise hunger relief money. And I hope everyone who wants some chocolate gets some!

  40. This is what Christmas has done to my brain…
    I read your noon contest teaser post at a quarter after 11am EST — so I set an alarm for 74 minutes(you know, 1 minute shy of 3/4 of an hour — that is, if an hour were ONE HUNDRED MINUTES LONG!)
    My second grader is smarter than me today.
    Missed the chocolate 🙁 Probably a good thing.
    Merry Christmas!
