Bid with your lid for SHI

We got exciting news from one of our planting partners, Sustainable Harvest International (SHI) - they have been selected to benefit from Stonyfield Farm’s ‘Bid With Your Lid’ program!

I am sure you all know Stonyfield Farm and their great organic dairy products, including their very tasty yogurts. The company, through its Profits for the Planet program, donates 10% of their profits to efforts that help protect and restore the earth.

Their annual 'Bid with Your Lid' program gives each one of us a chance to help direct a portion of these donations. They will give a total of $100,000 to three organizations that help the earth. Each organization will receive $20,000 plus a percentage of $40,000, based on your voting.

SHI is one of these 3 organizations, and we call everyone to cast their vote for SHI. You can do it online or by mail and receive great prizes on the way, like chocolate, tea, tote bags and of course yogurt!

We are very proud that one of our planting partners is participating in this program, and we send our greetings to Florence Reed, SHI founder, and all the people at SHI. They'll sure get our vote and hopefully yours as well. Voting begins July 1, 2007 and ends October 15, 2007.

Here's the link to receive more details on the program and how to vote and receive prizes:
