Better Basket Blog Hop for Charity

Hershey's is a household name, worldwide, but did you know that they have a long history of community service? In addition to programs like The Hershey Legacy, which has helped children overcome poverty and difficult life circumstances, Hershey's has been an active fundraising partner of the Children’s Miracle Network (CMN), a non-profit alliance of children’s hospitals dedicated to providing state-of-the-art care, life-saving research and preventative education across North America, for over twenty years.

This Easter, Hershey's is working with bloggers to "pay it forward" by making Better Baskets. Bloggers will help Hershey's donate up to $5,000 to the Children’s Miracle Network simply by writing about building a Better Basket. To raise awareness of the Hershey's Better Basket project, twenty bloggers were given gift cards and asked to create Easter baskets for charities of their choice using Hershey's products. (You can see my basket building process here.)

How can you join in? It’s simple:

  • Bloggers may participate in Hershey’s Better Basket Blog Hop and give away virtual Easter Baskets by creating a blog post following the instructions below.

  • Hershey's will donate $10 per each blog post to Children’s Miracle Network (CMN), up to total of $5,000.

  • One blog post per URL counts towards the donation, but you can give as many virtual Easter baskets as you want.

  • The Hershey’s Better Basket Blog Hop will officially begin at 12 AM EST on March 18th and end at 12 PM EST on April 4th, 2010. Blog posts submitted before or after that time period will not be counted.

  • Your blog post link has to be submitted in the comments at for the donation to be counted.

  • Copy and paste these rules to your blog post.

  • Create a blog post and give a virtual Easter Basket to another blogger - you can give as many Virtual Baskets as you want.

  • Leave your link at where you can also find the official rules of this #betterbasket blog hop and more information about Better Basket with Hershey’s.

  • Hershey's is donating $10 per each blog participating in the Better Basket Blog Hop to Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) (up to total of $5,000 by blog posts written by April 4th, 2010).

  • Please note that only one blog post per individual blog url will count towards the donation.

    1. That's such a great program. I liked your Whrrl story too. Reese's Peanut butter stuff is worth sifting through easter grass. I love that you put Pez in them too.
