Megan Johnson from the Non-GMO project just let us know about this and we felt it was worthwhile for you to know about.
Here is her announcement for you to read...
Hi Non-GMO Project Participants!
We are in the final days of Whole Foods Market’s New Year’s Resolution Facebook app. This is a great chance to promote your participation in the Non-GMO Project!
In case you haven’t seen the app yet, here’s the deal: On December 28th, Whole Foods launched a new Facebook application geared toward inspiring consumers with New Years resolutions and supporting non-profits, including the Non-GMO Project.
Every time someone resolves that "This is my year to know where my food comes from and support the Non-GMO Project," the Project gets a vote and is a step closer to doubling a $10,000 donation from Whole Foods.
Users can vote once per day, and voting closes January 31st, 2010.
By helping us spread the word, you can simultaneously promote your connection to the Project AND increase our odds of winning funding that will go directly towards building non-GMO awareness.
Below is some suggested language for spreading the word through social media channels. If you want to put out an e-newsletter, you can pull content from this link
and from this link
If you want more ideas, let us know!
Also, remember that simply engaging everyone at your company by inviting them to vote every day can make a huge difference. The contest is close right now!
