Day 240: Give 240
This weekend COBS Bread (Vancouver locations only) is having an in store event called “The Scone Campaign” to raise funds and awareness for the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization. It’s an easy give that will taste so good. Go to any COBS Bread location in Vancouver (find one here!) on Saturday, May 28 or Sunday, May 29 and buy a scone. With every scone purchase 50₵ will be donated to Big Brother Big Sisters.
Here is how you enter the contest.
- Take a picture and send it to 365give via email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Tweet @365give or @COBSBread while you are at the bakery enjoying your scone and let us know your favourite flavour!
- Facebook 365give or COBS your favourite flavour and how many you bought
- Make a comment right here on the site and share how good it felt to give and enjoy your scone
- You can even make a video and shoot it over. I will feature it on my You Tube channel.
- Heck send me a scone!
One luck winner will receive a $25.00 gift certificate from COBS Bread which we will announce on Monday, May 30, 2011!
Ooohhhh $25.00 worth of fresh baked goods. Yum, I like this! There are so many ways to give in our world but right this minute with my stomach is growling I can’t think of a better one than this.
“Working with Big Brothers Big Sisters over the last few years has been an eye opening experience. We have seen firsthand the positive impact a Big Brother or a Big Sister can have on a Little” says Elise Gillespie, Vice President of COBS Bread.
“COBS Bread has raised $31,800 for Big Brothers Big Sisters since 2009, which has allowed agencies across the country to provide many children with the support of a mentor. In addition, COBS has raised awareness of the urgent need for more Big Brother and Big Sister volunteers. COBS’ in-store campaigns have inspired many men and women to volunteer their time to provide encouragement and support to a young person in need in their community. We are so grateful for COBS’ support of mentoring,” says Shannon Newman-Bennett, Executive Director of Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland.
So go grab a your favourite scone this weekend to give and to win. 365give can’t wait to hear what your favourite flavour is and we will enter you to win!
Time Commitment: As long as you can make your scone last
Cost: The price of your scones
