EAT IT RAW: Week 2 to Win $500 in Prizes!October 10, 2011 6:32 am
Hello ROC Family! Hope that you all have had an AWESOME weekend! We had RAIN for the first time in…months?! I got to enjoy several runs in the rain, and it felt as if God was showering me with love! This past week, we celebrated our 4th birthday with Fresh Dates, new you tube videos, and new pictures of colorful food and YOU at co-op here! I even got to speak to Briargrove Elementary on how eating fruits and veggies are “Too Fruity for School!” That’s not all! We kicked off our first week of the EAT IT RAW CHALLENGE! The challenge is a 4-week competition that gives out over $500 each week of specially donated gifts to those who participate in posting their weekly recipes from their boxes on our ROC facebook page! Our first week’s winner is Madison Wilner, who won by making a “slosh” fruit smoothie that got over 90 “likes!” Congratulations Madsion! Are you interested in competing for a chance to get a free house cleaning by NaturalCare Cleaning Service, Free Yoga Passes to Define, Body, & Mind, Japanese Knives, Vibram Five Fingers, or even a Vitamix Blender?!? Heck Yes! Each week gives away different prizes! Keep reading below to find out how to win!
The purpose of the EAT IT RAW CHALLENGE is simply to connect our co-op (and everyone who loves to EAT IT RAW!) on our facebook page. We have over 4500 Rawfully Organic co-operators in the Houston area; yet, many are not involved in our community as they can be! For those who are not able to make it to co-op to volunteer and interact with others sharing recipes, ideas, and hugs, online interaction can be a super-fantastic way to easily share recipes, pictures of dishes, and ideas for items in our boxes! It is even an awesome way to meet others in the co-op who you may have not gotten the chance to know! We are all in this co-op because we appreciate? organic, loving, and raw produce! Why not connect with others in our city and beyond who have this same love and passion?!
Anyone can compete in the EAT IT RAW CHALLENGE…it’s TOO EASY! The competition spans over 4 weeks, and each week has a different theme. This first week, our theme was smoothies. Week 2 calls for juice recipes. Week 3 challenges you to make creative soups and salads, and week 4 for calls for…yummy desserts! The only requirement: it MUST be RAW! Each week has a different winner (the same person cannot win twice), and those 4 winners compete on week 5 in our Final Eat It Raw IRON CHEF Challenge at the Houston Arboretum on October 25th for the grand prize!
There are 3 weeks left to the competition, and this week calls for you to make a yummy juice! Many have already posted some juice ideas on the page, so hurry up and get posting so that you can build up your “likes” and win! Here’s how:
- Go to www.facebook.com/rawfullyorganic and “Like” the page!
- Make your recipe (please keep in mind the theme of the week!)
- Take a picture of your recipe!
- Post or Share it to the Rawfully Organic Facebook Page!
- Get your friends to “like” the photo!
This week we will have MORE special surprises in your box from which you will be able to make very Rawfully Happy recipes! Dates, watermelons, zucchini, pickles, greens, fruits, and more! If you know of anyone who may want to donate cool gifts for the challenge or sponsor the Final Iron Chef Challenge, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com! I am SO excited about this challenge, and I am EVEN MORE EXCITED to see our community come together in such a cool way to share recipes, encouragements, and friendships! I can’t wait to see you all this week, and I send many hugs!
