Goodies for Foodies

Recently, I stumbled across a wonderful site called OneGoodie, which I instantly fell in love with. There are two sections to OneGoodie- the first is called OneFoodie and the other is OneMommie. Everyday OneGoodie features one fun, interesting and unique product on each section of its site.

Earlier this week, OneGoodie actually featured our Cupola Clouds on their site! We were so excited about this. What's even better is that I was a OneGoodie fan and subscriber even before we worked with the owners of the site. For those of you who are foodies (and by foodie I mean anyone who likes to eat, drink, or for that matter think about food!), OneGoodie is also a great way to keep in the loop about innovative gadgets and delicious treats, not to mention great gift ideas as the holidays approach! Check it out for yourself here.

Cupola Cares- Share Our Strength Online Promotion

Did you know that 12.6 million children in America—that’s one in six—are at risk of hunger? From now through the end of the year, we will be donating a portion of our online sales to the non-profit Share Our Strength, which seeks to fight childhood hunger across the country in more ways than one.

I wrote about our partnership with Share Our Strength (SOS) earlier this year, but this non-profit does so much to fight childhood hunger through its numerous programs and events that I think it deserves another plug.

One of the major initiatives that the organization sponsors is the Great American Dine Out, where individuals can help out just by dining at participating restaurants across the country. The Great American Dine Out took place this past week, from Sept. 21-28. I was excited to find out that one of my favorite local restaurants here in Western PA, Passport Cafe, participated in the week-long event.

Here is a really moving promo that was created for the Great American Dine Out:

Although the Great American Dine Out is over, you can still help out! Here are a couple ways:
  • Keep an eye out for A Tasteful Pursuit, a touring dinner series sponsored by SOS that features some of the country's top chefs.
  • Operation Frontline provides knowledge and skills that help surround kids at risk of hunger with healthy foods where they live, learn and play, providing nutritional information and classes.
And of course, you can also do your part by purchasing some Cupola Cookies and Cupola Clouds through our online store!
