As one of the Bee Squad members for Bumblebee Foods, I am proud to represent a company that is active in the community. They started the Bee Squad so they could hear feedback from moms like you, which is great because not many companies take the time to do that.
Another great program formerly known as Bee Well Miles, an interactive program called Bee Well for Lifeprovides the tools and resources to encourage a healthy lifestyle. Participants in BeeWell for Life who log the miles they walk, run or bike are eligible for various prizes and help make a difference for Breast Cancer Network of Strength. For each mile logged through www.beewellforlife.com between now and October 31, 2010, Bumble Bee will donate 15¢ per mile. When one million miles are logged, the company will make an additional $50,000 contribution, for a total donation of $200,000!
In addition to the new Bee Well for Life, Bumble Bee foods has announced a contest called “Bee at the Walk” Now through April 16th, interested participants can submit their story related to breast cancer (via a text entry, personal photograph or video) explaining why they should attend the Breast Cancer Network of Strength Mother’s Day Walk to Empower as a BeeWell for Life National Ambassador in Chicago. Users can vote for their favorite submissions and based on those votes 5 finalists will be chosen. A panel of Bumble Bee & Network of Strength judges will then make a final review of the finalists and select the winner. The grand prize will include:
All expense paid trip for 4 to Chicago
Meet and greet with the NOS team
Tour of the FTD corporate location
Bouquet of roses provided by FTD
Flip camera (or similar video recorder) to document the experience
In addition to the grand prize trip to Chicago, entrants can also select if they would like to be entered to become a Team Captain for the remaining 13 cities. If selected as a team captain, they will be sent a branded Flip camera to record their experience at the walk.
