It’s almost October… and you know what that means – we’re thinking PINK at California Giant Berry Farms! For the past several years, we’ve set aside $10,000 to donate to cancer-related charitable causes. We’ve already donated $5,000 to the Santa Cruz Cancer Benefit Group, leaving us with $5,000 left to give.
After your outpouring of heart-felt stories and incredible pictures during our Think Pink promotion last year, we were moved to recognize your efforts for and commitments to the organizations that personally mean something to you. So this year we are taking a different approach to our Think Pink promotion. We will support YOU, the supporters of this terrific cause, by donating our remaining $5,000 to your favorite organizations. But how will we ever decide which charities to donate to? We won’t… YOU will!
Starting October 1st we will take nominations for cancer-related, non-profit organizations that you’d like to support via our Facebook Page. Share your photos and stories with us and we will select FIVE worthy organizations as finalists, with the grand prize winner determined by your votes! All five finalists will receive a portion of the $5,000, and the top vote getter will receive the largest portion, $2,500. Second place gets a $1,000 donation, and the remaining three finalists will win a $500 donation.
We’ll also feature some of the photos submitted on our Facebook timeline and as “Pink Cover models” throughout October. Pink T-shirts and “swag” will be awarded to our weekly cover models.
For those of you that support breast cancer awareness – THANK YOU! We can’t wait to contribute to your communities.
