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.

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!

Being a parent is one of the hardest jobs on our planet. We make decisions every day that we sometimes question. Are we feeding them the right food? Am I sending them to the right school? Am I teaching them things that will make them grow into a good person. I met two Mom’s, two kids and a school that is teaching their kids just that – to care, to support and to give. Could we ask anything more than that of our children?

If you want to grab my attention call your site “Good“. It’s even easier to pull me in when I have a chance to help a not-for-profit organization win $50,000.
What is GOOD? (information quoted from the site)
“GOOD is the integrated media platform for people who want to live well and do good.”
You don’t need to say another word to get me to sign up. Waiting for me in my inbox from Good this week was a great way to give. One vote, one click and one of 6 organizations have the chance to win $50,000.
All the organizations are truly inspiring but it wasn’t hard for me to choose, I was instantly drawn to on one organization called The Surfrider Foundation. I wake up every morning to a stunning view of the ocean. My son and I are on the beach playing every chance we get. I’m was born a Pieces so I am drawn to the water naturally and I know how much it’s suffering these days. If you watch the video on the Good site it is said so well by legendary surfer Laird Hamilton who works with the Surfrider Foundation ” The ocean like it’s own country, it should have it’s own flag and an army to protect it.”
Just by voting I felt like I was part of that army that will help protect the ocean. $50,000 is a lot of money for any organization. Who will you vote for today? Contests ends today so vote now!
