Free Donations to Support a Cause of your Choice!

I got an email the other day that caught my eye. It was from HotelsCombined.com and they offered to make a $20 donation to my Avon Walk. I know you’re thinking what’s the catch. Well there is a small catch. For me to earn that $20 donation, I was asked to write this blog post. Feel free to skip over it if you’re not interested, but you might want to stick around…

Hotels Combined is running a Spread the Word and Help campaign where make free donations on your behalf. Check here for information about how to participate. The easiest way to is simply become a fan of their facebook group. Then just leave a comment saying which of these three charities you would like the $5 to go to:

WWF – the global conservation charity dedicated to stopping the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and building a future in which humans live in harmony with nature.
World Vision – Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice
Make a Wish Foundation – Granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

And that’s it. $5 going to a charity of your choice and it’s free to you! You can also earn a $10 donation by tweeting about them or a $20 donation by blogging about them. It’s a great way to do a good deed without too much of an effort!

Update: I just wanted to add that the $20 donation from www.hotelscombined.com showed up on my Avon Walk page on 3/30, just two days after this post went up!

    I can’t decide which of those last 3 to try first…but I think I’m going with the Snickerdoodle Blondies. My husband and I are both nuts for snickerdoodles!

    Ok, I’ll take one of each please! And could you please share your secret on cutting those perfect bars?! Mine always have crumbs coming off the edge, or part of it sticks to the knife and leaves a big hole in the bar!

    Melissa – I always chill the brownies completely. Usually in the fridge. I find that helps. I also use a pastry cutter to cut them.

    Thank you so much! I am even more impressed knowing that you can wait until these goodies are completely chilled before cutting into them. 🙂 I think that scraper needs to go on my Christmas list!
