Happy National Guacamole Day!

Sunday, September 16, 2012 Posted by Dina N

Today, September 16, is National Guacamole Day! I am celebrating with some delicious guac from Wholly Guacamole and a bowl of baby carrots for dipping. Come to think of it, I celebrate a guacamole day every week...

This year, Wholly Guacamole is launching a special program on National Guacamole Day. The Wholly Heroes program celebrates the little heroes - children of the soldiers who honorably serve our country every day.

Every year, 2 million kids say goodbye to their moms or dads as they deploy. This means 2 million birthdays, first day of school, last day of school, holidays and special events are missed. Wholly Guacamole teamed up with Brad Meltzer, NY Times bestselling author and creator of Ordinary People Change The World. His team created the artwork for the Wholly™ Heroes program. The proceeds with go to Operation Purple® camps which is part of the National Military Family Association. These summer camps are special for military kids and the organization is a non-profit.

You can help Wholly Guacamole meet their goal of sending 100 kids to camp! Here is how: go to eatwholly.com or facebook.com/whollyguacamole to purchase a shirt or donate directly to Operation Purple camps. The shirts are $10 and Wholly aims to sell 5,000 shirts. Sales are via Pay Pal and shipping is included. Both youth and adult size shirts are available. I love the design!

The program runs from September 16 to October 31. And check this out -  each order will receive a coupon for one (1) FREE WHOLLY GUACAMOLE PRODUCT (up to $6.00 value).

Oh and speaking of coupons... Here are the special coupon offers from Wholly Guacamole for National Guacamole Day!

- Look for a $1.50 coupon in Sunday papers;
- Facebook $1.00 coupon has been reset for everyone to enjoy;
- Canadian new online coupon will be posted on Wholly's Facebook and Twitter pages.

And now I am going back to my guac...
