Ashley is the winner of the Old El Paso contest!

We didn't hear back from Cindy so I have chosen a new winner through Congratulations to Ashley on your Old El Paso win!

Show your Helping Hand and you can win big with Tim McGraw and Hamburger Helper!

To raise awareness about the national issue of hunger, Hamburger Helper® is partnering with GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter and actor Tim McGraw to help Feeding America deliver millions of meals to local food banks through the Show Your Helping Hand™ campaign. McGraw will lend his voice to the campaign through a Public Service Announcement which will be distributed nationwide. Click here to view the PSA.

Support the campaign by submitting codes from specially marked boxes of Hamburger Helper at or by logging on to make a donation. Hamburger Helper has already donated more than half a million dollars and will contribute up to an additional $100,000 to Feeding America through this program. Don’t think one code will make a difference? The 17 cents Hamburger Helper donates per code is enough for Feeding America to deliver one meal to a local food bank.

MyBlogSpark provided me with a great prize pack to give away (and gave me one as well!) that includes a box of Hamburger Helper skillet meals, a Hamburger Helper foam “Helping Hand” and a copy of Tim McGraw’s “Southern Voice” CD. Leave a comment regarding your thoughts about this great program from Hamburger Helper with an email to be entered to win!
