Corks, those little compressed wood chips that keep our wines safe are pretty valuable this Holiday season. Gallo Family Vineyards is offering a $5.00 donation to Meals On Wheels for every cork that is mailed to them through December 31, 2013. This years goal is to receive a maximum of $100,000.00 worth of corks in their mailbox before the end of the year.
Why are they doing this? Because our parents and grandparents mean a lot to us! Did you know that one in every six seniors faces the threat of hunger? Makes sense, if you consider that our Government sometimes is too busy making sure that their jobs are secure rather than taking care of The People. But that’s an entirely different blog, right? Anyways, bottom line is that our Senior loved ones deserve better. Thank you Gallo Family Vineyards for making a difference by having raised over $225,000 over the past three years through the Every Cork Counts program!
So how can you help? Here are a couple of ways:
1. Take a few minutes away from Candy Crush and play a fun, interactive game at EveryCorkCounts.com . For every cork caught in their cork catching game, $0.10 will be donated to Meals On Wheels Association of America
2. When you open a bottle, or 10, save your corks and mail them to Every Cork Counts, P.O. Box 3017, Grand Rapids, MN 55745-1154. Participants are encouraged to use a padded or bubble envelope or tuf-pak to mail cork(s) with sufficient First Class postage. All corks must be postmarked between August 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013 and received by January 11, 2014.
Easy right? Go ahead, make a difference this season. Don’t forget to leave a comment when you do.
