If You're A Good Cook, You Definitely Want To Enter This Contest Answered

Recipe Contest - $250 Whole Foods Gift Card!

I just wanted to give everyone the heads up about a cool online contest I just found out about that is ideal for foodies.

All you have to do is enter your best recipe for a chance to win a $250 gift card to Whole Foods.

The contest is via www.greenwala.com, which is an online green-themed social network.

The Greenwala community will vote on the top three finalist entries, so you can increase your chances of winning if you get your friends to join and vote for you.

Plus, for every new member who signs up, a tree will be planted in their honor courtesy of the non-profit group Trees For The Future, so that's a nice bonus right out of the gates.

They have a few other contests going on, too -- something fun for everyone: http://www.greenwala.com/greenwala_contests

Wow. I don't know how on earth I could possibly benefit financially from letting everyone know about some fun, creative contests. I win no prize -- THEY would be the one scoring a $250 Whole Foods gift card if they entered a recipe into the contest. It's a pretty sad world when people think the worst of you just because you're excited about something. This is a creative community -- that's why I thought people here would appreciate the heads up. That's it, period. No ulterior motive. Sorry for the trouble.

Thanks for posting. I'll point this out to my wife. Don't worry, I didn't take it as spam. But if you continue to promote this greenie site, you might want to post a disclaimer, stating that you stand to gain nothing (but satisfaction) from steering folks in this direction.

I think this is a fantastic contest! Thank you for sharing Elizahleigh. I'm pretty sure I have a couple recipes up my sleeves I might be able to enter :)

All this controversy over a contest? SERIOUSLY?? I would have taken the time to spread the word about the Greenwala contest myself if Elizah didn't beat me to the punch. You go, girl. Great contest(s) for awesome causes (like Akiva and Trees For The Future), plus the winners win fantastic prizes -- what's bad about that? I think this is DEFINITELY the right community to spread the word. People here deserve to be rewarded for their creativity.

Elizahleigh, are you somehow involved with Greenwala?

The only topics you have posted, and most of your comments, have been to promote their contests.

If you are something official from Greenwala, don't you think it would be polite to mention the fact, and maybe check with the Instructables admins before posting the links all over the forums?

I absolutely LOVE this and will send this link to all of my fellow greenies over at www.greenwala.com (the online green social network).

Does that answer your question Kiteman?

Okay, cool, but maybe you should stop talking about in every comment, it makes you look like a spammer who only wants money.

Hi! I'm just an enthusiastic member of the community and since there are so many creative-minded people here, I figured that they'd appreciate the contests :)

Granted if it's spammery, then it's not that bad, it's relevant to some here and it seems legit, having visited it, though not relevant to us, US only...

It's actually relevant to anyone across the globe.
