It's been a great week for "Clipping for a Cause!" First, the kick-off of the ministry at FUMC followed by a mini-trip to the Lawrenceville Co-op with 82 items donated thanks to several friends of mine. So..I thought I would keep this all going by having a little contest to see who can guess the closest amount that I paid OUT OF POCKET for the above items. I went to Publix tonight and did my shopping for the co-op separately from my personal shopping. I really wanted to let everyone have the opportunity to visualize what a difference can be made by simply clipping coupons and taking a little time extra time to shop for "donation items" when you are already there. I cannot express to you how grateful I am for everyone's help with this...whether it's the donated coupon inserts you may not use, the emails with the helpful hints and best deals, or donating food. To date, 552 items have gone to people in need and it couldn't be done without your help.

All you have to do to win the $10 Publix Gift Card is:

1. Become a Follower of "Clipping for a Cause!" The "Follow" section is on the top left of the page.

3. Share this giveaway with others:

  1. I blogged about your giveaway:

  2. I have come up with $0.71 - so closest dollar amount is $1.00.

  3. OK, I blogged about you & linked to my blog w/ your button! :) I also told all my FB community about you...are you happy now? LOL

    OH, my guess is that you MADE 1.00 on that trip. :)

  4. Great blog! My church, Bluff Park UMC, has a small food pantry and there is a group of us who collect the coupons and snag all the freebies we can. It's a great feeling, isn't it?
