Seed. Sprout. Grow. [Give Back + Giveaway]

Blogging? On a Saturday?

It’s been awhile since that happened.

Well. I ran out of tape did need a break from packing.

I also wanted to take a quick opportunity to help out a company who has been incredibly kind to, and supportive of, me over the years.

Rudi’s Organic Bakery has partnered with Kiva, an organization who’s mission is to utilize the international connections of the web to “connect people through lending to alleviate poverty.” Kiva provides loans to individuals or communities throughout the world to help them grow their small businesses and create better lives for themselves, their families, and their neighborhoods.

Through the Seed. Sprout. Grow. campaign, Rudi’s is hoping to share the stories of twenty-five entrepreneurs throughout the world who are working to make changes for themselves and others.

To participate, all you have to do is visit Rudi’s Seed. Sprout. Grow. page on facebook and share one of the stories that you connect with most. For every story shared, Rudi’s will donate $5 to Kiva campaigns until they reach $25,000.

I chose Waldo, a Peruvian-American whose passion for cooking led him to open a restaurant in Texas, and who wants to use his business to better his community through scholarship programs and aid for cancer-ridden children and their families.

To encourage participation, Rudi’s has offered up an INCREDIBLE giveaway package for one of my readers. To help you live YOUR ‘best life’ the company is givng away a yoga, fitness, and nutrition collection that includes a Lucy giftcard, yoga mat and DVD, and Enjoy Life seed and nut mix.

Most of us are incredibly blessed and lucky that the phrase improving our lives means choosing healthy food to eat and exercising our minds and bodies…not finding a source of clean drinking water or enough food to feed our families.

Please take a second to share some of the stories through the Seed. Sprout. Grow. campaign.

Honestly, I never knew chiropractic care could change and improve someone’s life until I started working for my chiro. Now, I feel like I’m helping them improve lives, especially those of kids!

I love doing little things to make others smile…help the elderly woman at Target get something off of a high shelf, make one of my preschoolers smile for the rest of the day by complimenting his wonderful manners, etc….it’s the little things that I think people really remember and I love being able to do that for others!

Today, I donated a bag of food to Stamp Out Hunger. It was pretty simple: I just had to fill a bag with shelf stable items, and my postal carrier picked it up!

What a great cause. You made a good point about how bettering our lives means cooking better or exercising. Since most of us always have access to clean & safe food it’s easy to forget that not everyone else does. It should make us really appreciate every bite more!

Working in the medical profession, I do my part each and every shift to provide the utmost in patient care…being sure that my patients feel safe and comfortable and understand all of the imaging tests being ordered for them to treat their illnesses. I may only have a small part in the big picture of their care, but critical nonetheless! :)

Not a huge effort, but my mom has been feeling a lot of digestive stress lately and I cooked her a nice ‘gut-friendly’ mother’s day meal and cleaned for her while teaching her some tips to feel better!

Love this! I shared Frank’s story -
Basil Farmer – United States
Because I would love to see more and more local farmers succeeding and making a living in the United States.

I got the honor to make a college student some gluten free brownies. He just found out he had a gluten problem, and had been feeling down about it!. He loved them!
