Stirring Up Wishes, plus a giveaway with Betty Crocker!

Do you ever make a wish, maybe you look up to the night sky, see a shooting star and quickly say a simple wish. What if you were quite sick and you had a simple wish, almost like a something to do just one last time type of wish? If you knew of a simple way to make this wish happen for someone, would you do it?

Betty Crocker has joined the Make-A-Wish Foundation to bring you the Stirring Up Wishes Program

Now you have a way to help a child with a life threatening medical condition have a wish come true, bringing to them a little hope, some extra strength, and some joy to their lives.

There are 2 very simple ways to make this happen.
One way is to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation online while saving on wonderful Betty Crocker products through the Give $5, Get $5 promotion. Just visit from now through April 15th to donate $5 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and get $5 worth of downloadable Betty Crocker coupons.

The second way is to simply purchase your favorite Betty Crocker products this spring. For every specially marked package purchased, Betty Crocker will donate 10 cents to the Make-A-Wish Foundation with a guaranteed minimum donation of $250,000 and a maximum donation of $500,000.

I know I bring Betty Crocker into my family for many of the celebrations throughout the year and Stirring Up Wishes celebrates those very special moments when some amazingly strong children and their families have a wish. Betty Crocker has made a three-year, $250,000 annual commitment to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This could be doubled for the year 2010 with your help.

I was sent a Betty Crocker Stirring Up Wishes prize pack that included a package of the Betty Crocker Brownie Mix, a package of the Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookie mix, and a Betty Crocker spoon. In addition, a $25 donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation was made on my behalf.

Now for the giveaway!!
Not only could you win the same prize pack that I did, but an additional $25 donation will be made to the Make-A-Wish Foundation on behalf of the winner of this giveaway. Simply Amazing!

  4. I'd grant Pierce's wish because I'm an education major and special education endorsement. He is just too cute.
