About Hamburger Helper Show Your Helping Hand Campaign:
To raise awareness about the national issue of hunger, Hamburger Helper® is partnering with GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter and actor Tim McGraw to help Feeding America deliver millions of meals to local food banks through the Show Your Helping Hand™ campaign. McGraw will lend his voice to the campaign through a Public Service Announcement which will be distributed nationwide. Click here to view the PSA.
Support the campaign by submitting codes from specially marked boxes of Hamburger Helper at http://www.showyourhelpinghand.com/or by logging on to make a donation. Hamburger Helper has already donated more than half a million dollars and will contribute up to an additional $100,000 to Feeding America through this program. Don’t think one code will make a difference? The 17 cents Hamburger Helper donates per code is enough for Feeding America to deliver one meal to a local food bank.
We were sent an awesome little prize package (which you will have a chance at the end of this post to win a similar one) to help us learn more and participate in the Hamburger Helper Show Your Helping Hand Campaign that included: a box of Hamburger Helper skillet meals, a Hamburger Helper foam “Helping Hand” and a copy of Tim McGraw’s “Southern Voice” CD. And Hamburger Helper will made a $10 donation to the Show Your Helping Hand™ campaign on our behalf, how awesome is that?????
First off we are huge fans of Hamburger Helper skillet meals around here and we eat them pretty much on a weekly basis so we already knew that we were going to love the meal and of course it was as awesome as always and of course “Bug” claimed the Hamburger Helper foam “Helping Hand” as his own and has had a blast playing around the house with it on his hand, and then since I don’t listen much to country music my husband got the copy of Tim McGraw’s “Southern Voice” CD and he said it’s an awesome CD and I don’t think it’s came out of his truck’s CD player since he got it!!!
Since discovering the Hamburger Helper Show Your Helping Hand Campaign I’ve been making sure to only purchase the Hamburger Helper boxes that has the special codes to submit online to donate the 17 cents, and I have been encouraging my friends and family members to do the same and so far the ones that do eat Hamburger Helper on regular occasions (yes, mom I’m talking about you here) has been purchasing them and either entering the codes themselves or giving them to me and I’ve been entering them for them. I think that this is such a wonderful campaign and I think everyone should know about it and I hope you decide to participate and if you’re not a Hamburger Helper fan please spread the word to friends and family who are!!!!!
