Help Send Me to Vermont!!

I have some wonderful news to share — I was selected as one of ten finalist for the Stonyfield Blogger Barnstorming Essay Contest!! Voting is now open to the public to select the three winners who will tour the organic farms Stonyfield uses to make its yummy organic products, meet the farmers and their families, along with a tour of the factory itself. This is an amazing learning opportunity, and I would love to share the information gained with all of you as well, but to do that I NEED your vote!

As an added bonus, if I make the top 3, Stonyfield will make a $5,000 donation to the charity of my choice — The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. How fantastic is that??

    Really, 4:30am? – and you want to go? It all sounds so – farmy πŸ™‚ But, you have my vote(s). This is a great blog.

  6. Magic Mummy says

    Good luck x

  7. Annette W. says

    I voted…

    We're doing a family vacation to VT this summer. πŸ™‚ But I grew up on a farm, so really, no desire for me to get up to milk the cows, but have fun!

    Something that some people do for motivating readers to vote is to have giveaways and have one entry be the vote. Just a thought.

    I always read you in my reader, but just don't stop by too often anymore to say hi. So many good blogs to read…so little time. πŸ™‚
