A Virtual Easter Basket For You – It’s For A Good Cause

April 2, 2010


Hello everyone! I wasn’t planning on posting for this week but there is something happening that is worth sharing.

If you happen to come by my humble blog (whether old or new), then I give you this . . .


Yes, it is a Virtual Easter Basket from me to you (thanks to Hershey’s).

You know, this is not an ordinary Easter basket. It has a wonderful story behind it – – all for a good cause.

You see, Hershey’s has promised to donate $10 for every blog post written where a Virtual Easter Basket is shared to someone. They will donate up to $7000 to the Children’s Miracle Network.

Want to join in too?

How can you join? It’s simple:

  • Participate to HERSHEY’S Better Basket Blog Hop of giving away virtual Easter Baskets by creating a blog post with specific rules described here.
  • HERSHEY’S will donate $7,000 for CMN
  • You can give as many virtual Easter baskets as you want.
  • The HERSHEY’S Better Basket Blog Hop will officially begin at 12 AM EST on March 18th and end at 12 PM EST on April 4th, 2010. Blog posts submitted to us before or after that time period will not be counted for.
  • The blog post link has to be submitted to us for your participation to be counted.
  • In addition copy and paste the following text in your blog post


  • Copy and paste these rules to your blog post.
  • Create a blog post giving a virtual Easter Basket to another blogger – you can give as many Virtual Baskets as you want.
  • Link back to person who gave you an Easter Basket.
  • Let each person you are giving a Virtual Easter Basket know you have given them a Basket.
  • Leave your link at comment section. You can also find the official rules of this #betterbasket blog hop, and more information about Better Basket with Hershey’s there.
  • This started as a meme of HERSHEY’S donating $10 per each blog participating to the Better Basket Blog Hop to Children’s Miracle Network up to $5,000 – but after so many bloggers participating, HERSHEY’S decided to donate a total of $7,000 honoring the kindness of blogger community .
  • .

    It’s times like this where I’m happy to have a blog. This simple act can truly help. Also, who wouldn’t want to receive an Easter basket, anyway? It can surely brighten one’s day, right? And so, I thank Miss Tina (aka Beansie) of Beansie Babbles for sharing this Easter basket to all who have visited her on her Blue Monday post. And, boy am I glad I happen to dropped by too.

    It’s open until April 4th and so far there are still 400+ blog posts (we’re aiming for 700, right?) – there are still more time and opportunity to join. So ladies and gents (if there are any 🙂 ) I’d love to hear from you so let your presence be known 🙂 Also, let’s join in on this wonderful cause. Here’s the link: Hershey’s Better Basket

      Great cause and I would participate but have been unable to post on my blog. It’s frustrating not being computer savy.
      I hope you have a Lovely Easter!
      PS. Miss Lily has a place of honor in her new home, I wish I could share it with you. Mary

      A great idea, but not for the UK unfortunately. Still, it’s a great idea and a great cause, so best of luck.

      Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Easter!

      A beautiful basket and a great idea for Hershey’s. I appreciate generosity of many large companies. I hope you’ve had as nice a week as we in West Texas. We have few days that are actually spring before the high temps start in. We’ve been cleaning out a storage bldg so we can just add more junk to it. But at lest we will move junk from one place to an out of the way place. I hope you have a wonderful Resurrection Sunday!

      nakakatuwa to wait for the hen to lay eggs. we are always checking kung ilan na. sayang nga yung 3 na nawala, 3 manok din yun ‘no?! 😀

      and yes, sobrang na-eenjoy ko now magtahi kesa gantsilyo. pano kasi, nanakit ang kamay at braso ko everytime i crochet. tumatanda na kasi :D.

      Oh how I wish I would have known about this sooner. It’s a wonderful cause. With Charli so sick and the holy hours I have not been on the computer much. I might still mention the post on my blog to let everyone know what Hersey did. I hope you and your family had a blessed and beautiful Easter holiday. Thank you so much for the kind comments left on my blog. I hope you have a lovely week.
