GIFTS THAT GIVE BACK ~ Women’s Bean Project Giveaway

You know I love Companies that Give Back! I recently received a wonderful gift pack pictured below from the Women’s Bean Project and you have a chance to win it! The Women’s Bean Project is a great organization that helps women to find employment and gain work skills.
Since 1989 Women’s Bean Project has been helping women break the cycle of poverty and unemployment. They are a nonprofit organization that teaches job readiness and life skills for entry-level jobs through employment in their gourmet food production and handmade jewelry manufacturing businesses. Women come with the goal of transforming their lives and moving toward self sufficiency.

The Holidays are right around the corner and Women’s Bean Project has a huge variety of gifts that are perfect for the upcoming holiday season! (Click HERE to order Women’s Bean Project Gourmet Foods, Gifts and Jewelry online.) Most of the products I received came with a label that had the signature of the woman who packaged them which I thought was a beautiful touch. Its great knowing you can really help someone out, especially near the holidays. And this makes for a very meaningful (not to mention, wildly delicious!) gift for others. Think teachers, hostess gifts, corporate gifts, etc.!

Cindy's Sinfully Chocolate Brownie MixFirehouse #10 Hot ChiliGreen Chili Salsa Mix (medium)

The products I received included Firehouse Hot Chili Mix complimented with Golden Cornbread Mix, Green Chili Salsa Mix and Cindy’s Sinfully Chocolate Brownie Mix! The aroma from these beautifully packaged goodies filled my house so quickly; the kids came running in my office to see what I had. And, thanks to the wonderful people over at The Women’s Bean Project YOU have the chance to win this beautiful gift package, just in time for your holiday entertaining! Here’s how:
