Newmans Own Organics Review & Giveaway

Yum

Thanks to Coupons In Motion for this Review and Giveaway.

Newman’s Own Organics

This is a familiar image that many recognize as Newman’s Own and Paul Newman. Newman’s Own Organics was established as a division of Newman’s Own in 1993, and became a separate company in late 2001. Paul Newman has given over $200 million to thousands of charities worldwide since 1982.
Posted on Newman’s Own Organic (NOO) website:
WHAT IS ORGANIC?

It’s a pretty common question. Here are the basics.

The materials below were developed by the USDA National Organic Program in 1994 and serve as a general outline of the definition of Organic as it will be used in the United States.

DEFINITION
Organic agriculture is a holistic system with the primary goal of optimizing the health and productivity of interdependent communities of soil life, plants, animals, and people. Management practices are carefully selected with an intent to restore and then maintain ecological harmony on the farm, its surrounding environment and ultimately the whole planetary ecosystem.

PRINCIPLES
Organic production systems seek to provide food, fiber and herbal products of the highest quality in sufficient quantities.

Now the fun part! NOO sent me a large box of their products to review. I was totally amazed with their generosity. They even sent products for my 2 Boxers to try, much to their delight.

COOKIES! Did someone say cookies? My favorite food. I received several packages of cookies but my favorites were the “Fig Newmans” and the “Newman-O’s”. So delicious! NOO, if you’re reading this, I would be more than happy to review some more of these. LOL

For Full Review head on over to  Coupons In Motion

Final thought: I give these products an A+. I wouldn’t be honest if I said I liked them all. We don’t all like the same thing and that’s okay. That’s why there are so many different types of food. I highly recommend Newman’s Own Organics!

Newman’s Own Organics has agreed to sponsor a giveaway prize for one of my readers. The winner will receive a total of 4 products from NOO. The products you will receive are the following (one package of each): Fig Newmans, Licorice, Newman O’s, and Dog Treats. (I will check with the winner to determine the exact flavor of product they would like to try.) In addition, NOO will also send the winner a “surprise product”. So that’s a total of 5 products.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Enter for your chance to win on the Rafflecopter Form below.
All entries will be verified.

Good luck to all!

Autism Awareness: Moving Beyond Awareness Into Action and Promise

Yum

Autism Awareness Month Almost Over, Now What?

30 Days of Autism Awareness Month Challenge Begins at the Cafe

My friend over at Kat’s Cafe had  this idea. It goes something like this: we participate in an awareness campaign (like this one for Autism Awareness) and it gives us a sense of purpose, a sense of healing, and even, maybe, a sense of achievement — we did something.

Here is her post from her blog:

There’s something inherent in any kind of cause marketing (just another fancy name for trying to convince you to care about a cause instead of a product) that is almost counterproductive to the purpose and potential it represents. Inaction.

There. I said it.

The sad fact of the matter is, that the end of this month will come and go, and our lives will be very much the same.

For being a family mired in the ‘having of autism’ we won’t suddenly be miraculously understood by that clerk at the store, and we will still feel isolated and alone because it’s just too hard to find someone willing to watch the guys so we can go out … our lives don’t change because of a campaign like this.

Sometimes the big organizations are a bit richer, are able to fund more research and put out more information and resources, but how does that help those of us in the trenches?

What if that wasn’t the case though?

What if we could turn Autism Awareness into Action?

What if, alongside the great quotes and warm fuzzy pictures we could have actionable ways to help those within the autism community? And what if, instead of simply pinning a pin, you are part of a pinning movement? What if, instead of taking part in a Facebook contest, you could not only win great prizes all in the name of Autism Awareness, but could also pledge to make a difference.

Not by sharing a photo or graphic (though I’m all for that too).

Not by writing moving posts (though I’m all for that too)

Not by being brutally honest about life with three boys on the spectrum (and a hubby too) … though, heck, I’m for that one too.

What if …

What if, when someone pinned a great graphic, or entered a great Facebook contest, they were given ways to help someone who was autistic feel less isolated? What if they were given things they could ACT on that could make a difference? And what if YOU could help?

And just for the heck of it, let’s dream big here, what if they were part of a Twitter Party that gave prizes for the best brainstormed ways to help a family  who has an autistic child be a part of the community again? What if we could have a Google+ Hangout and come together to discuss ways to make Awareness EQUAL action?

I think we can.

I think you can.

And I think we should.

Want to be a part of it? A part of the discussion, a part of the movement, a voice among many, THE voice that helps to make a difference?

Join me!

During the month of May, Kat’s Cafe is joining with some phenomenal sponsors and a whole host of bloggers to prove that WE CAN move past awareness, into actionable goals and to-do lists, into simple and complex things we can do to create change.

Not talk about change. But create it.

This is the moment where you decide if you want to be a part of it.

Because it’s going to be big.

One person can make a difference, but many, working together, can promote understanding, respect, hope, and change.

Over this weekend I’ll be releasing more information, a special section of the Cafe, and a Blogger’s kit to be involved in this very different kind of awareness campaign.

If you have been around the Cafe, you know that my graphics will be a part of this – and I’m busy working on some great ones to go along with this campaign.

If you want to feel more than warm fuzzies, if you want to take a big step out with me, do me a HUGE favor, right now.

Take a deep breath (not the favor!).

Think of all the ways you can help this message spread. You can share it, pin it, like it, tweet it, +1 it, reblog it (absolutely!) and right now … you can become even more involved too.

Fill the form out if you want to be a part of the blogger’s Awareness Team, leave me a comment to say hi, you love the idea, or have this even better idea about how to make it better.

Actionable Autism Awareness. It’s cause marketing, social media for social good, and a promise too … working together we can make a real difference!

[PS – Still signing up some last-minute sponsors. If you want to donate a prize, your organization’s support, or something more, fill the form too – I’ll get back to everyone who responds!]
