Today, I received an email with a reference to hamburger meat and at first I thought it was more spam. But soon realized it was from Hamburger Helper’s “My Hometown Helper” program announcing their "grant contest" for local non-profit groups raising funds to positively impact their community in some way.
Here's how it works:
Every month through May 2007, Hamburger Helper will choose one 501(c)(4) organization for a monetary grant of up to $15,000. All the group has to do is to register online with the program and complete an essay of two hundred and fifty words or less describing how they the need help. All of the application information can be found here.
It's interesting that they are targeting bloggers as part of their publicity strategy.
