Giving Thanks for Giving - New story contest / giveaway

I am ecstatic to be part of another program sponsored by Cooking Planit. This program is a wonderful way to recognize the people in our lives who selflessly give to others. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, please join us in celebrating these hidden heroes!

From Friday, October 18th to Friday, November 1st, share a personal story about someone you know who gives their time, energy, and/or love in the spirit of helping others. Both you and your hidden hero could win up to $250 in cash and one grand prize winner will get to choose a local charity to which Cooking Planit will donate $1,000!

  • 5 winners will be selected from all eligible entries. $100 Visa gift card will be awarded to the story author and $250 to their Hidden Hero (story subject).
  • Grand-prize: Cooking Planit will donate $1,000 to the charity selected by the giving winner
