I would LOVE it if you would take the pledge through WWF’s website to turn off your lights for that one hour. I know that it’s a Saturday night, and you might be out having fun and well, at that hour it’s dark, but take that time to sit and have a bath or dinner by candlelight, snuggle with your significant other, or just take a moment to look up at the sky and into the stars. I mean, even the Empire State Building, Times Square and Wrigley Field is turning off it’s lights!
I might be out of town in Oakland, CA getting ready to run a 1/2 Marathon the next morning but you know I’ll be turning off my lights, and that includes the TV, radio and my computer! I think this is a very important to get the word out on Climate Change. And it’s only an hour! I know you can do it!
But get this, I’m including a giveaway to help promote it!
When I was at the National Products Expo I came across the stand for Endangered Species Chocolates, which I’ve tried before and absolutely love! I explained to one of the employees there (thanks Stephanie!) about my running fundraiser and she gladly handed over a few kinds of chocolates for me to give to you!!!
I am super excited for this giveaway not just because it’s awesome chocolate (duh) but because of the way they make their chocolate, get their products, and donate 10% of their net profits (a minimum of $10,000) to various organizations! How awesome is that!
So, for this giveaway I have some great products for you!
First off, Dark Chocolate Covered Cashews. How much better can it get than such a great nut enrobed in 72% Dark chocolate that’s fair trade and ethically farmed!? And look at those little monkeys…they’re using those eyes to get you to give into this giveaway!
Then there’s the beautiful Rhino’s on the front of these very tasty Dark Chocolate Covered Hazelnut Toffee pieces. I know you all love toffee!
This bar gives me a flashback to my trip to Australia where I got to see a wild Koala Bear snacking on leaves in the trees. So what better than to eat a Dark Chocolate and Cherry Bar with their cuddly face on it? I wish I could!
And then the Rhino’s are back with a Dark Chocolate Bar with Hazelnut Toffee. If you didn’t get enough of it with the clusters, you always have a bar leftover to satisfy that craving.
