…it’s Q-U-A-K-E-R!
My oats also make this:

In fact here’s me with my main Quaker man first thing in the morning headed down to make some. (Dude, if you have ever tried it, or can even imagine, you’ll know why I’m so stoked in the picture.)
Quaker Rocks My World.

Not everyone has a chefs torch sitting around to make this, but I promise it’s just as good without the burnt caramelized sugar. But what really matters is that not everyone has food in their kitchen to even make breakfast. That’s where Quaker steps it. Just by participating Quaker will donate a case of oatmeal to my local food bank, Gleaners.  Even better? Quaker has given 25 bloggers, including me, the opportunity to win a $5,000 donation to a hunger charity OF MY CHOICE if I can just get you wonderful readers and Facebookies to participate and spread the Quaker word about their Share our Strength: No Kid Hungry Program.

Now here’s what I need you to do to help me get $5,000 donated to some hungry people. (All it will take is a printer, a webcam/camera, a Facebook profile, four minutes and a willing heart.) Official rules here.

1. Click over to Start with Substance to get connected to the Quaker man’s Facebook page and once there, click to become a fan.

2. Once you become a fan at his Facebook page, download the picture of the Quaker Man, print it out, and take a family friendly picture of yourself and/or your family with him, within your four walls. (Don’t mess with the Quaker man, he demands R-E-S-P-E-C-T.)

3. Upload your picture to the fan photo page, come back here and leave a comment here with the link to your picture on Facebook. (I NEEED that comment please to prove our winning Quaker kickbuttedness.)

4. Pictures on Facebook and links in my comments must be posted in the next 24 hours. You have until 9 A.M. CST Saturday the 14th to make moosh in indy. readers THE WINNERS! I am the last blog to post the contest…LET’S GO OUT WITH A BANG!

It’s sooo on.

(Quaker has also provided a coupon for one reader and for myself to get that much closer to oatmeal bliss. But to get it you have to Facebook it up and help the hungry kids!)


  1. I printed out the Quaker picture while my kiddos were sleeping and was planning on taking a picture of them with it (because we all know that our kids are cuter than we are). However, I forgot until my husband saw the Quaker man tonight after the kiddos were back asleep for good. Luckily, my husband was kind enough to take the picture of himself with the Quaker guy.

  2. Kevin Olmstead says:

    I can’t do the facebook thing, but I believe in your cause, so I made a small donation to Gleaners.

    If every one of the 58 commenters above donated $25, that’s about 1500 guaranteed dollars, no pimping necessary! 🙂 Wish you the best of luck either way.
