Help Grow Your Soup?!

One of the things I love about my job is the fact that I get to see new things before they really "hit the masses". Help Your Soup Grow. Did you know you could do that? Well Campbell's Soup, The National FFA Organization and (get this) Grammy Award nominee Jewel have started a new campaign to reinvest in the future of Agriculture. Not only are they willing to donate to up to $250,000 for those that go to the website http://HelpGrowYourSoup.com . Pretty neat, huh?! All you have to do is click on that link and then click on the Red Barn. Pretty simple. And for each click on the Red Barn - Campbell's will donate $1 up to $250,000. I've even got it linked on our website.

This is from the Campbell's Website:


We all rely on farms and farmers to nourish our families. Now it's our turn to give back to them.

As part of our corporate mission to nourish people's lives everywhere, every day, Campbell Soup Company is committed to supporting the farmers that have provided the wholesome ingredients for Campbell's® condensed soups for nearly 110 years. Through a partnership with the National FFA Organization, which is dedicated to developing our next generation of leaders through agricultural education, Campbell has committed a quarter of a million dollars to help support the future of American farming.

Join us as we help good things grow: Our Food. Our Farms. Our Future.

The other part of this program is the FFA Alumni is teaming up with the National FFA Organization and Campbell's to restore old barns across the United States. Why? Because Red Barns are iconic and represent America's Farmers. So they've decided to restore historic barns and there's even been a restoration here in Illinois. To see that restoration - click HERE. In my opinion - not only is Campbell's investing in the future of American Agriculture.. They are also preserving the thought and the history of what Agriculture means to us...

We'll have more on the Help Grow Your Soup Campaign later this week... check back to our website http://ag.1290wirl.com!
