The Holiday crooners have long serenaded us with the promise of a Christmas full of roaring fires, entrancing conversation and yummy adult beverages.
A few of my favorites to sip on while I conspire by the fire?
The Grand French Coffee | The B-52 | The Grand Moccha
Of course the prevailing ingredient in all of these is none other than Grand Marnier Liqueur which is a blended medley of true cognacs and distilled essence of bitter orange. Aside from the salivating drinks above, it is a delight served neat over ice or even sipped after meals as a tummy-tamer. To summarize: it's delicious, seasonal and beneficial.
But your tummy isn't the only one who Grand Marnier is out to protect.
Thanks to Bloggy Friend, Kinsey- I was alerted to the fact that this holiday season, Grand Marnier will donate $10,000 to one of the charities below:
- World Wildlife Fund, an organization that protects nature and endangered species
- WaterAid, a charity that provides clean, safe water to the world's poorest countries
- Cool Earth, an organization that protects rainforests and helps build sustainable communities
That's it, it's THAT easy.
And just in case you needed another incentive: your vote automatically puts you in the running to win $1,000 and you get to put your own ornament on the beautiful Grand Giving Tree.
So please all you socially-minded, kind-hearted readers who have less than a minute to spare- please go help one of the worthy charities win the money they're very deserving of!
And be sure to let me know which one you picked!
Thanks Kinsey, for alerting me to such an easy, yet rewarding way to contribute to a cause.
