I've been attacked by Easter Basket tag. Becky decided that:
a. I needed to get my act together and post more often.
b. I'm just cool and she wanted to link to my blog on hers.
c. She thought I was someone likely to play along.
The answer of course is d. All of the above. Despite my needing to post more, and my innate coolness (er...geekiness) I am a sucker for a company willing to donate money to good causes. Particularly when there is really such little effort needed on my part. So what was I tagged with? A virtual Hershey Better Basket!
Hershey’s has partnered with CMN this Easter to donate up to $5000 through the Better Basket Blog Hop campaign.
If you want to participate also, it’s very quick and easy. Hershey’s will donate $10 per post up to 500 posts. When we are all done that will be $5000 raised for Children’s Miracle Network!
Here’s all you need to do.
HERSHEY’S BETTER BASKET BLOG HOP RULES:
* Create a blog post giving a virtual Easter Basket to another blogger – you can give as many Virtual Baskets as you want.
* Link back to person who gave you an Easter Basket.
* Let each person you are giving a Virtual Easter Basket know you have given them a Basket.
* Leave your link at BetterBasket.info/BlogHop comment section. You can also find the official rules, and more information about Better Basket with Hershey’s there.
* Hershey’s is donating $10 per each blog participating to the Better Basket Blog Hop to Children’s Miracle Network (up to total of $5,000 by blog posts written by April 4th, 2010).
* Please note that only one blog post by each blog url will count towards the donation.
You can follow the giving on Twitter using hashtag #betterbasket.
I am going to pass this basket on to a few of my blogger friends. I hope they'll participate too, if only to help raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network. So I am tagging Suzi and Sarah. I enjoy both of their blogs and think they might not be too grouchy to be tagged, as I think they are awesome! :)
Oh, one more thing. Hershey if you are reading this: I am thrilled that you are donating $$ and I love your chocolate, but please consider making plain chocolate on peanut/nut free machines. When you plan events with kids you have to keep allergies in mind and I just can't use your chocolate!
