Hershey's Better Basket Blog Hop!

The Angel Forever has passed onto me a virtual Easter basket. BUT unlike most blog awards and things, this one is for a GREAT cause!!! (In other words, don't stop reading! LOL)

So what IS the Hershey's Better Basket Blog Hop?! I'm so glad you asked!! If you have a blog, you can help raise money for a GREAT cause!!! Hershey is donating up to $5,000 to the Children's Miracle Network with this promotion – $10 for every blog that participates in the Better Basket Blog Hop. The post that you are reading right now is another $10 that will be given to children’s hospitals all over North America. An additional $5,000 to this charity would be the world of difference to many sick children.

SO this post right here is another $10! YAY! And now, I get to pass my virtual basket along to some of you... who hopefully will pass it along to others... who hopefully will pass it along to more people! Let's get Hershey to their $5,000 goal!

In my basket, I would include a chocolate bunny, because EVERYONE needs one of those! LOL I would also include peanut butter eggs, because well... they're YUMMY! And ummm, let's see... Cadbury eggs because I know that most people like them even though I'm not a fan. And finally, I would put a bag of jelly beans in there with my most favorite kids' Easter poem:
Red is for the blood He Gave,
Green is for the grass He made,
Yellow is for the sun so bright,
Orange is for the edge of night,
Black is for the sins we made,
White is for the price He paid,
Purple is for the hour of sorrow,
Pink is for the new tomorrow.
A bag full of jelly beans, colorful and sweet,
Is a prayer... is a promise... is an Easter treat!

I now pass my basket onto:
1. Julie at The Peanut Gallery
2. Emily at Doss Family Journey
3. Sandy at The6Steins
4. Heather at Whittaker Woman
5. Bethany at Life with Bubba, Chicky & Nika
6. Amy at The Flege Farm
7. Michelle at Big Blueberry Eyes
8. Heather at The A-Team Adventures
9. Natali at The Thinking Blonde
10. Nadine at The Albrecht Squad
11. Jess at Wrong Week
12. Heather at Little Wonders
13. YOU!!!!

I know that you dont answer questions but every few days. Can you tell me what you guys love and dislike from Schwans? My friend and I are thinking of placing a order. Its just me and my 2 girls like 25 days outta the month cause hubby is a truck driver. Also its just my friend and her 3 kiddos. Her hubby is over fighting for our country like Frank.

What a great idea! I did it (thanks for tagging me!). I also tagged 9 more people. So hopefully this will raise $100 more. Did you see that they have raised their donation to $7000??
