Live 24 Hour Contest For Charity! {Closed}

Our 24 hours are over. I cannot thank you all enough for participating and especially, the mother of all mom bloggers, Trisha at She is the absolute bomb! Mahalo Nui Trisha!!!!
I will keep you all posted on how this turns out and who wins!

Growing up I have a very distinct memory of sitting at our breakfast bar in the kitchen and eating oatmeal. I must have been around 3 or 4 since that is the age we lived in that house. I completely remember it being made with Quaker Oatmeal, with the man on the round container. My mom would add brown sugar and pour milk on it. So yum!

And here I am today with that same container in my house for my kids and family. We use it for cereal, cookies, in my mom’s delicious turkey meatloaf recipe, heck you can even use it as a facial scrub. We love the Quaker man!

That is why I am so excited to be part of Quaker Oats’ 25 Bloggers 25 Days Program to help the hungry. Here how it works…

1. This contest will only run for 24 hours, that’s from February 5th starting at 9 a.m. Central Time to February 6th 9 a.m. Central time. So time is of the essence…are you excited?!

2. This contest is ALL ABOUT YOU, the Ohana Mama readers. It’s your mission, if you will :)

3. What to do: Your mission if you choose to accept it, is as follows (don’t ya love the drama)

  1. go to the Quaker Oats Facebook page (you can also find official rules here)
  2. download the image of the Quaker Man & print it out **You can use a Quaker man from a product in your house or take a picture with the Quaker man on your computer screen if your printer is broken***
  3. take a photo or video of you or your family with the Quaker Man
  4. upload it to the Facebook page
  5. AND submit the FACEBOOK link of your photo in a comment on this post
Some rules: You cannot alter the picture in any way and please don’t use or create obscene images. They will be deleted.

Phew! THAT’S IT!

So What Do You Win? A Whole Lotta Feeling Good, that’s what!
Here is THE BEST part and why it’s ALL ABOUT YOU and HELPING THOSE IN NEED! 25 blogs are hosting this event over 25 days. The one blogger with the most comments with this mission completed will get to choose a Hunger Charity of their choice to receive $5000!

That’s a wonderful amount that could feed a lot of hungry folks!

So let’s do this guys! Come on it will only take a minute – do it with your kids, it’ll be fun! And we only have 24 HOURS!

Quaker has also given me two coupons, each good for $1.00 off any 2 Quaker Oats’ products to giveaway. Who couldn’t use a coupon huh? AND, they are donating a case of oatmeal for a local food bank here in Maui on Ohana Mama’s behalf. Mahalo Quaker!

I can’t wait to see what you come up with! Come on, what are you waiting for? Go print out the Quaker man and have fun (keep it kid and family friendly of course) have to link to a photo of them on the Facebook page with the Quaker Man.

Remember this is only a 24 hour event so get going!
And please tweet the heck out of this if you can!

    ok, this was a challenge for me as my printer is out of ink and we ate all our oatmeal about 2 weeks ago and I haven't bought anymore! So here is a pic of me with Mr. Quaker on my screen saver. I'll be looking at him for the rest of Feb :)
