Swapping and sharing lunches- for all the right reasons.

As a parent, I know that my kids have and will continue to swap and share parts of their lunch with their friends. Yes, sometimes if I've spent an hour making a fancy-schmancy bento full of fruits and veggies and they swapped for a bag of Cheetos it can be a but annoying, but kids are kids and there is nothing I can do about it.

I can, however, tell y'all about a virtual sandwich Swap 'n' Share Program.

Luckily, Hellmann's® and Best Foods® Mayonnaise has teamed up with musician and actor Billy Ray Cyrus to encourage people of all ages to celebrate their favorite childhood ritual and join the virtual Sandwich Swap 'n' Share program to raise money for Feeding America®, the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity.

For every sandwich created as part of the virtual Sandwich Swap 'n' Share program on Facebook.com/hellmanns, Hellmann's® and Best Foods® will donate 7 lunches[1] to Feeding America®.

Did you catch that? 7 LUNCHES! for every sandwich created. How awesome is that?

If that isn't enough to get you to click over right now, you just might win something, too! Each sandwich created will automatically enter you for a chance to win a $250 grocery store gift certificate.[2] And for every friend on Facebook®[3] that you share your sandwich with, Hellmann's® and Best Foods® will donate an additional 7 lunches to the charity.

[1] 7 lunches equals a $1 donation Hellmann's® will make to Feeding America® to provide meals to Americans at risk of hunger. Up to 700,000 lunches.

[2] No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited. Sandwich Swap 'n' Share Sweepstakes is sponsored by Conopco, Inc., d/b/a Unilever. Open to legal residents of the 50 U.S. & D.C., 18 & older. Begins 12:00:01 p.m. ET on 8/19/09 & ends 11:59:59 a.m. ET on 10/30/09. For official rules, visit the Hellmann's® page at www.facebook.com/hellmanns or www.facebook.com/bestfoods.

Even without the incentive and chance to win, this is a wonderful program and I hope that you will spread the Hellman's and the word. You can feel free to add me to your facebook friends (Sherry Conrad)* and share your sandwich with me.

* If anyone can tell me how to put the link for people to join me on facebook here on my blog I would be eternally grateful- must be the idiot proof version.

I received no compensation for this post. I am sharing this opportunity for you as a member of MomSelect. For helping to spread the word I receive 1 entry into a giveaway that all members who blog about this giveaway receive.
