I didn’t get any coupons in the mail last week but I did get one tasty treat: two Starbucks gift cards for $5 each (one for me and one for my partner,) just for filling out a survey for Second Harvest.
Unfortunately the survey is now finished. However, Second Harvest has a few other opportunities on the horizon. The first 100 schools or companies that register for Lunch Money Day on February 26, 2009 (a fundraiser encouraging people to give the amount of money they would normally have spent on lunch) will receive a $25 Starbucks gift card.
Plus, save $3 on the Gourmet Food & Wine Expo! Experience the world of gourmet food and wine at the MTCC, November 20 to 23. Click here to purchase your tickets and quote promotion code TASTE to get $3 off admission. As the Expo’s charitable partner, Second Harvest will receive $1 for each tasting glass returned at the show’s exit, plus all proceeds from wine bottle redemptions.
Second Harvest is a great organization – for example, did you know that $5 provides up to 10 meals for people who would otherwise go hungry in Toronto? Or that they provide enough fresh food for about 15,000 nutritious meals each day? I think they are an excellent organization. They have low admin/fundraising costs, and best of all, they are champions of two causes at once: they help the environment by reducing waste, and they feed hungry people. If you are considering your Christmas donation list, I would encourage you to consider their cause. (And no, I do not work for them, I just think they’re doing very important work!)
