I’m excited to announce the FINAL giveaway to help support the California Right to Know (YES on Prop 37) campaign to label GMOs in California.
Eden Foods is giving away a Popcorn Bowl gift package. Enter to win and help us raise funds for Yes on Prop 37!
Yes on Prop 37 Giveaway: Eden Foods Popcorn Bowl — $35 Value
Guys, support of Prop 37 has drastically declined ever since Monsanto, Dow Chemical and their cohorts started spending $1 million per day in California to deceive voters into voting against the initiative to label GMO foods.
Proponents of Proposition 37, the November ballot measure that would make California the first state to require most foods made with genetically engineered ingredients to be labeled, are frantically trying to raise money as their initiative sees a significant dip in the polls. (Source: SF Gate)

Support has dropped from 61% in favor of Prop 37 to 44%.
This is really bad, folks. We’ve GOT to get this number up!
The pro-Prop. 37 campaign is hoping to persuade undecided voters with its new ad, “Food is Love,” which is airing in markets across California. In the meantime, supporters of the initiative are using everything from social networking to raffles to raise money. Many of their contributions are coming from consumers and are averaging $50, Malkan said. (Source: SF Gate)
Great commercial, right? Unfortunately, nobody will see it unless we raise more money to get it on the air.
Giveaway: Eden Foods Popcorn Bowl – $35 Value
To help raise funds for Yes on Prop 37, Eden Foods has generously donated a Popcorn Bowl gift package.
The package includes a vintage looking, food safe, white enamelware bowl with bold lettering on it stating POPCORN. The bowl is filled with a 20 ounce resealable pouch of EDEN Organic Yellow Popcorn; 16 ounces GEO-free EDEN Organic Soybean Oil; 14 ounces of triple sea water washed EDEN Portuguese Sea Salt; 3.5 ounces EDEN Organic Garlic Gomasio (sesame/salt condiment) that’s delicious sprinkled on popcorn in place of salt; 4 ounces EDEN All Mixed Up Too snack mix; and a 40 page Easy EDEN Recipe Book.
Here is what Eden Foods says about Prop 37 on their website:
Eden Foods Supports California’s Right To Know Campaign Regarding November’s Passage of Proposition 37
Please, Do Not Believe Mega-Funded Evil Lies of Those Against Prop 37
Eden Foods supports the inalienable right of people to know what is in their food. Eden Foods supports passage of California’s Proposition 37 that would require labeling of genetically engineered food. “Hiding the truth about our food is pervasive, unethical, and only done for money,” says Michael Potter of Eden Foods. “Let this [Prop 37] be the beginning of an end to it.” To encourage passage of Proposition 37, Eden Foods is actively involved in many efforts to counter disinformation.
Note: I know I am going to get comments about the soybean oil so here you go… Yes, there is soybean oil in this gift package. I don’t personally use or advocate soybean oil and I understand that you may not either. But this is still and AWESOME gift and more importantly, this is a GREAT way to raise awareness for Yes on Prop 37!
How to Enter to Win
All you have to do is use the Rafflecopter widget below and (1) Sign up for my weekly newsletter (or send in a postcard — see official rules for details) and (2) Make a voluntary donation to Yes on Prop 37 (or comment below about why you support Prop 37).
You don’t have to donate to win — this is voluntary.
I beg of you, PLEASE DO NOT enter to win without making a donation to this very important cause. I see a lot of folks entering these giveaways without pledging even a dollar. Really, guys? Look, I know money is tight, but can’t you even pledge $5?
There’s tremendous power in numbers, and if all you folks who live outside of California (and within California as well) will PLEASE make a donation, you could be the tide that turns this vote in our favor.
And as California goes, so goes the nation. Do you really think they’re just going to label GMO foods in California? Of course not! They’re going to have to label them across the United States! Won’t that be awesome to walk into your local grocery store and see a GMO label on almost everything in the supermarket? This is such a HUGE opportunity to kick Monsanto in the pants!
Let’s face it, guys — GMOs are the BIGGEST threat to our planet. If California can get GMOs labeled, do you really think they will only change the labels for California? Nope, they’ll create new labels that will go in stores nationwide.
This will impact the entire country and ultimately the world. I can’t stress enough how important this is to the environment. If this proposition does not pass, we have only ourselves to blame.
Even if it means raiding that jar of change on the bookshelf or working an extra hour or two to get a bit of overtime, or maybe you could raise a few bucks with a lemonade stand or sell some books to a used bookstore. Please be creative and find a way to donate. This is SO important.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE don’t just enter this giveaway — use it as an opportunity to DONATE so we can run more commercials and convince more Californians to VOTE YES on Prop 37!
OK, I’ll step down from the soap box now.
You can get more entries by sharing on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
PLEASE NOTE: This sweepstakes is open to US residents only; residents of Florida, New York or Rhode Island are not eligible.
Good luck, everyone! And thank you for donating what you can to this important initiative, and for sharing this giveaway on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter!
And please tell your friends in California to VOTE YES ON PROP 37!
