Little efforts count. Whether it's frosting the perfect cake for your son's Spiderman cupcakes or volunteering at a food pantry. Moms know that our efforts have and impact on our communities and on how we educate our children to be good global citizens. Sometimes a company like Glad makes a big effort and that's what I'm here to share today.
You may already know Glad is a proud supporter of Cookies for Kids'?? Cancer, a non-profit organization committed to raising money to support pediatric cancer research through bake sales. Thanks to a Mamaista event last week, I got to meet Gretchen the charity's founding mom. I was wowed by her efforts to raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer through cookie sales.
When Glad approached me about sharing how my family gives back through food-related activities. I immediately thought of my church's moms group. Informally organized, every time our church has a new baby in the fold, the other moms spring into action. We sign up to cook and deliver a week's worth of meals to the new parents. Allowing a mom to skip kitchen duty and bond with baby is so important. I was blessed with two happy healthy girls and have enjoyed my wild ride of motherhood. But I couldn't do it without friends.
Now let's talk about how you give back. I've got the incredible opportunity to giveaway a $500 gift card to the reader who shares the most compelling story sharing your recipe for giving.

At the end of the contest (5/31/10), I'??ll be able to read through all of the comments and select one winner '?? the person I think has the best, most inspiring, recipe for giving. They will be awarded a $500 gift card on behalf of Glad as their prize.
