Rachael Ray teams up with Gerber for nutrition

During the holidays it’s easy to remember to give back to your community. There are all sorts of programs and charitable drives that receive extra support from good-willed merrymakers. That kind of charity remains important after the holidays, which is why we wanted to bring your attention to a partnership between Gerber Foods and Rachael Ray’s nonprofit organization, Yum-O.

Gerber has committed one dollar for every Facebook ‘Like’ it receives, up to $500,000, to Yum-O. Here’s the press blurb:

As part of our commitment to nourish a healthier generation, Gerber is partnering with Rachael Ray’s Yum-o! nonprofit organization to ask America to join in our mission to give the gift of nutrition to families in need. Gerber will donate $1, up to $500,000, to the Yum-o! nonprofit organization for every “Like” on our Facebook page by January 15, 2011. Through Yum-o!’s partners, these dollars will help families have access to nutritious food.

This is really a sweet deal for everyone involved. You can do a little good in the world, just by clicking a button, and for every person that clicks that ‘Like’ button, a family in need gets that much closer to not only a nutritious meal, but the education required for a nutritious lifestyle.
