With only a week left until the big day of thanks, we would like to send our own thank you to all of our fans for your support of the blog and the Calling All Turkeys promotion. There has been a great boost in our readership and followers since the original Calling All Turkeys article published on September 27th. With the help and encouragement you’ve provided, we’re in a position to supply three turkeys to FOOD Share that will hopefully allow folks in need with a better meal this year. We will be delivering the turkeys on Tuesday, November 22nd.
But even though the finish line is in site, the turkeys aren’t quite on the table yet. We still need a small push and some good ol’ word of mouth to meet our goals. The notations below illustrate how very close we are.
If we are able to increase the number of people following the blog, we’ll donate turkeys to our partner, FOOD Share, so that others will also be able to enjoy the holiday well fed.
75 Facebook followers will generate 1 turkey donatedAccomplished! 100 Facebook followers will generate 2 turkeys donatedAccomplished!
- 25 direct blog subscribers via email will yield an additional turkey at either tier (completed via the Fill Your Plate subscription @ the right side of the blog) 3 subscribers to go.
Some of you have reached out to us and shared your plan to donate in your community should we reach our mark. That is a fantastic gesture and I am humbled that our desire to give back to our community has inspired you to do the same. For those of you planning to provide food, time or money to a group this Thanksgiving, please send us who you are donating to and what you are giving so that we may acknowledge you and your efforts in an upcoming article about generosity.
Thank you again to everyone who has been following us, enjoying our articles and spreading the word about enjoying food and life by taking a bite, and also sharing a bite.
