Kroger $30 Gift Card Giveaway and Pound for Pound Challenge

Ok everybody; it’s time to put away all the cakes, cookies, and other unhealthy foods. It’s time to start eating healthy, exercising, and shedding a few pounds. I know, easier said than done, huh?

Well, here’s a very good reason to do it. The Kroger Co. Family of Stores, General Mills, NBC's hit TV Show "The Biggest Loser" and other key sponsors are partnering to donate up to $1,080,000 to Feeding America this year. All you have to do is pledge to lose a few pounds. For every pound you pledge to lose by June 30, 2010, the Pound For Pound Challenge will donate 14¢ to Feeding America® - enough to deliver one pound of groceries to a local food bank.
Visit www.pfpchallenge.com/Kroger to make your pledge to lose weight and to get more information and to find tools to change your life for the better. It is free, easy and only takes a minute to make a change that can help you and help the hungry in your local community. Be sure you tell all your friends about this so they can pledge, too!

I personally pledged to lose 8 pounds. Exercising is on the top of my list right now. Of course, eating healthy is next. Fortunately, Kroger Co. Family of Stores has helped by providing me with a $30 gift card! I can’t wait to go shopping for some healthy General Mills products!

Now, here’s the good news! They are also providing one of my readers with a $30 gift card! Here’s what you can do to win:

Simply post a comment! This entry is required to participate in this giveaway. Make sure you include your e-mail address so that I may contact you.

Additional entries:

• Post another comment stating how many pounds you pledged to lose.
• Post another comment stating which General Mills product(s) you would like to purchase.
• Become a follower on Google Friend Connect and post a comment stating that you have done this.
• Follow me on Twitter by clicking here and post a comment including your Twitter ID.
• Tweet about my giveaway on Twitter (Tweet must link directly back to this post) and post a comment stating that you have done this.
• Blog about my giveaway and post 2 comments state that you have done this (that’s 2 additional entries!)

All entries must be received by Wednesday, June 30, 2010 at midnight. A winner will be selected randomly on Thursday, July 1, 2010. Winner will have 48 hours to respond. If winner doesn’t respond within 48 hours, a new winner will be randomly selected.

The Kroger Family of Stores includes Kroger, Fred Meyer, Ralph´s, King Soopers, City Market, Dillon's, Smith´s, Fry´s, QFC, Baker´s, Owen´s, Jay C Food Stores, Hilander, Gerbes, Food4Less, Pay Less Super Markets and Scott´s Food & Pharmacy.

Sorta Southern Single Mom said...

Stopping by from SITS. Glad to *hear* things went well yesterday!

Exercise is at the top of my list too...I can't get my weight to budge eating healthy, so I'm running the equivalent of a 5K twice a week and do weights two other days!
