Pound for Pound Challenge (CLOSED)



How many of you have watched "The Biggest Loser" on TV and thought "I can do that"?
I have but as they say "Talk is cheap". It's all well and good to think this while we are watching the show but how many of us have actually made the effort to do it? I haven't and lord knows I need to lose the weight.

The Kroger Co. Family of Stores, General Mills, NBC's hit TV show "The Biggest Loser" and other key sponsors are partnering to donate up to $1,080,000 to Feeding America this year.

The way this works is you go to http://www.pfpchallenge.com/Kroger to make your pledge to lose weight. For every pound pledged 14 cents will be donated to Feeding America. That 14 cents is enough to deliver 1 pound of food to a local food bank. You are able to choose the food bank you want your pledge to go to. By participating you are making a change that not only helps you but can help the hungry in your local community. Pledges will be accepted through June 30, 2010 so hurry over and start working on that change. I made my pledge. How about you?

If you have watched The Biggest Loser, you have seen several General Mills products featured. Some examples are Yoplait Greek Yogurt, Total and Multigrain Cheerios all of which are available at the Kroger Family of Stores, who is an official supplier of the Biggest Loser Ranch.

The Kroger Family of Stores and General Mills through My Blog Spark has generously given me a $30 Kroger gift card to help me on my way to meeting my pledge. They are also going to give one of my readers a $30 Kroger gift card.

Here is how you can win:
Although I would love for you to make a pledge, I am not going to require a pledge for an entry.
1) Tell me how you would spread the word about the Pound for Pound Challenge.
2) Follow my Blog.
3) Blog about the giveaway (+5 entries)(must make comment for each entry).
4) Follow me on Twitter.
5) Tweet about the giveaway - can be done daily.(provide your link).

This giveaway will start on Tuesday 6/15/2010 at 12:01AM and end on Thursday 6/24/2010 at 11:59PM. The winner will be chosen by Random.org and will have until 9:00AM on Monday 6/28/2010 to respond.
Your email must be included in your comment so I can contact you or it will be disqualified if chosen.


DISCLOSURE:Although a $30 Kroger gift card and the information about the challenge were provided to me by The Kroger Family of Stores and General Mills through My Blog Spark, any and all opinions stated are my own.
