Freschetta Pizza Team's The Strength of 1 Campaign

Every ONE of us has the power to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. The makers of Freschetta pizza are looking for women to help spread the word about their The Strength of 1 campaign to help further its mission – to inspire everyone to realize they can make a difference in some way – big or small – in the fight against breast cancer.

Now through the end of October, 2012, the makers of Freschetta pizza are helping to promote breast cancer awareness through their new The Strength of 1 campaign, which includes sponsoring Bright Pink, the only national non-profit organization focusing on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women, while providing support to high-risk individuals. The mission of this The Strength of 1 initiative is to inspire everyone to realize they can make a difference in some way in the fight against breast cancer.

Freschetta has proudly teamed up and supports Bright Pink, a non-profit organization that focuses on early detection for breast and ovarian cancer, as well as providing support for those who are at high risk.

There are many ways you can help team up with Freschetta in creating awareness and joining the fight against breast cancer.  I urge you to get involved with this campaign and help make a difference through one of the following simple ways:

Take the Pledge:  Visit the Freschetta Facebook page and take the pledge to become educated on breast cancer, stay updated on your monthly visits, and many more pledge worthy options!

Share a Story:  Visit the Freschetta Facebook page and share a story about how breast cancer has affected your life or someone you know by October 12, 2012.  After that stories will be judged and the winner's story will win a donation of $5,000 by Freschetta to the cause affiliated with the winner's story.

Tweet/Change Your Twitter Badge:  Between October 1 - October 8, 2012 your tweets can help make a difference with the hashtag #Strengthof1.  You can visit Freschetta's Facebook page and get their Strength of 1 Twitter Badge.  Change your profile pic to their badge and tweet with the hashtag.  Your efforts can win you $500 and a matching donation to Bright Pink.

Buy Freschetta Pizza:  When you buy a Freschetta pizza you are helping support the fight against breast cancer.  Freschetta will be making a donation to Bright Pink in the amount of $25,000.  Every pizza helps make a difference!

Gevalia Kaffe review and giveaway!! QUICK GIVEAWAY!!

Gevalia Kaffe is much more than your average ‘cup of joe.’ It’s a Swedish-style break from the usual coffee grind. Perfected by the Swedes’ passion for quality coffee for more than 150 years, Gevalia is an exquisitely rich smooth coffee experience that is never bitter. Gevalia isn’t just coffee, it’s ‘Kaffe’ to savor!
  • The Swedes know a thing or two about coffee. They know quality coffee should be savored and enjoyed. They also know you deserve a more unique/special coffee experience than what you can pick up on every street corner.
  • Gevalia is a luxurious departure from the everyday, an escape from the routine cup of coffee. Whether it’s a morning ritual made just for you, or the finishing touch at a dinner party, it brings the taste of Swedish-style luxury into your home.
  • In Sweden, where the citizens drink more coffee than almost anywhere else in the world, Gevalia is their preferred brand.
    • In fact, Gevalia enjoys the honor of being an official coffee of the Swedish Royal Court.
Gevalia, now available at Safeway, brings unexpected Swedish-style luxury and rich, never bitter taste to the Safeway grocery aisle.
    • Gevalia Traditional Roast (ground and whole bean):
      Gevalia Traditional Roast provides a perfectly balanced taste every time. Our most beloved blend – made of choice, mountain-grown Arabica beans – this coffee has a distinctive body and flavor with a lighter intensity. (Medium Roast).

    • Gevalia House Blend:
      A Gevalia favorite, House Blend is a robust yet never bitter coffee. This roast has a captivating aroma that is only matched by its exceptional flavor. (Medium/Dark Roast).

    • Gevalia House Blend Decaf :
      Delivering the same rich, never bitter flavor, House Blend Decaf has the same robust taste without all the caffeine. (Medium/Dark Roast).

    • Gevalia French Roast (ground and whole bean):
      Gevalia French Roast is a coffee of impressive richness and dimension, expertly crafted from prized Arabica beans grown in Colombia and Brazil. Hints of aromatic smoke give this dark-roasted French Roast blend an intense, yet uniquely satisfying flavor. (Dark Roast).

    • Gevalia Colombia:
      Grown high in the Colombian Andes, these beans produce a rich, bright and well-bodied Colombian coffee. This single origin classic is world-renowned, which is why we have sourced these beans for decades. (Medium Roast).

    • Gevalia Espresso Roast:
      Gevalia Espresso Roast is made of premium, mountain-grown Arabica beans from East Africa and Central and South America. This roast is bold and full-bodied with a hint of caramel undertones. (Dark Roast).

    • Gevalia Vanilla:
      This rich blend with vanilla flavor notes is crafted from choice mountain-grown Arabica beans, then roasted for exceptional body and flavor. Gevalia Vanilla is a flavorful and balanced experience with a heavenly aroma.

    • Gevalia Chocolate Mocha:
      Gevalia Chocolate Mocha allows you to indulge your passion for decadent flavor. Rich, velvety chocolate flavor is blended with mountain-grown Arabica beans for a sweetly satisfying experience. 
    I was beyond thrilled to have received my Gevalia Kaffe French Roast, House Blend and the their awesome matching mug! I've never tried their brand before but I had heard of it. You know when royalty drinks this, in the Swedish courts, it's gotta be good!! Seriously. I enjoyed both of them but I think my favorite out of the two was the House Blend! The House Blend has a smooth taste to it and the French Roast is more of an intense flavor. Both are quite delicious.

    Now, you have a chance to win your OWN Gevalia Kaffee goodness!! The prize pack you could win is the very same one that I have which is: (1) House Blend from Gevalia Kaffe, (1) French Roast Blend and A Gevalia Kaffe branded coffee mug! There are TWO mandatory entries so please make sure you abide by those and then you can enter various other ways as well. I'll be checking and removing any entries that are NOT valid.
