Share Your Thanks & Be Entered to Win with Nature’s Path Organic Foods [CLOSED]

  • Delicious

The holidays can be a time when we get wrapped up in the commercial aspect of it all… forgetting that not everyone is as fortunate as we are at this time of year.  We’ve partnered up with Nature’s Path Organic Foods, the number one organic cereal maker in North America, to bring you a giveaway with a really awesome twist.

We have two baskets filled with holiday-inspired, organic foods from Nature’s Path ($50 value) for two lucky readers to either enjoy themselves or give away to their cause of choice (ie: Christmas hamper, food bank, etc.)  I have both the granola and the granola bars here at home and both are AMAZING and super delicious.

How do you enter to win?

Reply below or Tweet out one of two things:

  1. What you are thankful for this holiday season or
  2. How you plan to give back to your community

If you Tweet, use hashtag #ovmthanks so we can track your Tweets and be sure to Tweet at so they can see your responses too!

The basket is a gift that keeps on giving because (among other things) it contains two bags of Nature’s Path popular Love Crunch granola. For each bag of Love Crunch sold, Nature’s Path’s “Bite4Bite” initiative donates the equivalent amount in cereal or cash to food banks across North America – up to one million dollars. Nature’s Path is big on giving and would like your help spreading holiday cheer in your community.

Good luck!  A winner will be chosen on December 17th at 6PM.

    I am thankful for my two amazing children - they literally make my heart sing. We have been trying to fit in the odd random act of Christmas kindness this year. In my mind it is so important to teach our kids that Christmas is not all about the presents. We plan on collcting donations for the food bank in our neighbourhood this weekend. My daugher also really wants to buy someones coffee at Tim Hortons!

    I am thankful for my son. I never knew if i would be able to share the joy of this season with my own child, and this year is a first. I plan on showing him how important it is to help others, and we've started with donations to food banks of baby food on his behalf, and with donations from my comissions to charities which hold a place in my heart. It's not only at this time of year, but all year round it's important to make a difference. It can be something small and simple, but to that person you are helping it's the whole world.

    I am thankful to have two wonderful children who dont ask for extravagant things. One actually said that he will get two gifts this year. One is a Jake and the Neverland Pirates pirate ship and the other gift is his mommy, daddy and brother, Max. So sweet and only 3 years old. This year, I told the kids in order to get gifts, they have to pick out 10 toys that they no longer use that are still in good shape and we will donate them to kids who might not be as lucky to get toys at Christmas time.

    I am thankful for my family! I have 4 amazing children that put a smile on my face every morning, I would do anything for them! I am always giving back to the community - I host at least one event every month for building our community, and trying to build a playground. and I have been on the Canadian Cancer Society Board of Directors for the Relay for Life, the BOD for the Parc Leslie Foundation, we also collect donations for animals and I am one of the creaters of Pontiac Autism, where we raised over $15 000 for Autistic children and their schools, and my hubby is the local soccer coach! Our community is very important to us! :D This Christmas season, my children and I will be sitting down to write letters to the soldiers that can't be home for Christmas, hoping to show appreciation and brighten their holidays...

    I am so thankful for the amazing friends and family that surround me and support me. This past year saw some challenges for people in my life - and watching others surround and uplift those people was amazing.

      By the way, we love Nature's Path product and just bought a bunch last night including two bags of Love Crunch (you must try the Carrot Cake) as well as Sunrise Maple and Flax Plus. Yummy and good for you and the planet!

    I am thankful for my family and how supportive they are. I love them all. We plan to give back by donating to Christmas cheer again this year.

    This year I am especially thankful for the time I have spent with my sister in California. With the passing of my other sister in 2011 the time we have together is precious, as the three of us were as close as any sisters could have been. With all our family in Canada, I know that she was happy to have me here too, even for just a few weeks. As for the community, I do regular volunteer work with a Child Welfare organization and when I return I will be helping out with the final stages of a Christmas Gift program for needy children and families. Merry Christmas everyone.

    I am thankful for my family, everyone is healthy. I give back by teaching karma yoga on the beach every summer and the money goes to VAR animal rescue group in Renfrew.

    Although I lost my mom earlier this year and it will be my first Christmas without either of my parents around, I am still so very thankful. I'm thankful for good health, great kids, having the opportunity to spend time with 2 of my 3 kids & hubby this Christmas, and then looking forward to spending time with my daughter and her hubby and a grandbaby that is due this month! Been going through stuff and have been donating baby clothing to a shelter for unwed mothers. Also have signed my daughter up for baby stuff and received a ton of formula which I have donated as well since she plans on breastfeeding.

    I am thankful for this holiday season to be healthy and to be able to live a happy life with my daughter. I am thankful that I am able to see her grow! I am also thankful that I have held on to my sanity throughout the craziest of times.

    This season I have committed to giving back to people in my community who are less fortunate and who may not be able to afford to put gifts under the tree for their children. We have purged our closets and donated clothes, books, toys and other baby items. It feels great to know that you helped a family in need!

    I am thankful for my family and friends. Every year I sell Christmas Ornaments and Brooches to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy.

    i'm thankful that the love of my life returned safely home from his deployment and that we are not engaged. And to give back to others, I always donate to and support the Wounded Warrior Project and its programs. katherinedibello (at) gmail (dot) com

    I am thankful for the sound of giggles from my two girls, for their arms that hug me and for the joy I feel in their presence. I am also thankful for my loving husband who brings laughter to us each day. I give back through donation to our foster child and through teaching my 4 year old daughter how to love and care for those around her....

    I am so thankful for the family and friends I am surrounded by and that support me on a daily basis. I am so very thankful for my beautiful two year old daughter, who makes my husband and I smile and laugh every day and for the child we will welcome in Spring 2013. I am so thankful for all of this, particularly at a time, when so many are suffering. This Christmas, we are exchanging few gifts and instead, I have organized, at work, a Christmas hamper for a family in need in Ottawa (am thrilled that we will be able to provide this family with a huge basket of food, gifts and household items). My family will also be donating to the Food Bank. I plan to continue to give back to the community year round, in hopes of teaching my children early on the power of giving and helping others.
