"Wrap What You Love"

I just received an E-mail that Chipotle Mexican Grill and FamilyFarmed have partnered together, creating a photo competition that will support FamilyFarmed's mission to provide new markets for sustainable, local farmers. For every person who gets online and votes for their favorite submission, Chipotle will donate $1 to FamilyFarmed. Participants who register are allowed to vote and upload their own photo's of things they love wrapped in gold!

Chipotle offers prizes for the most creative submissions, including five 24-karat gold Chipotle burrito coins and $10,000 in cash. The online campaign also raises money for the 501-c-3 non-profit in support of its programs to help family farmers bring more local food to market.

Chipotle was a proud sponsor of the 2011 FamilyFarmed EXPO. They have been celebrating their mission of high quality, freshest, local ingredients by wrapping their signature burrito's in gold. Now they ask you to wrap your signature items as well to share with the world! 

The article states: 
"We are grateful to expand our strategic partnership with Chipotle," said president Jim Slama. "This funding will help us to build our capacity to help local and sustainable food farmers to access companies like Chipotle and other large customers. It will also help us to expand the scope of our FamilyFarmed EXPO, a leading trade show and conference for local food farmers and artisan food producers."
Currently, "Wrap What You Love" has raised just over $30,000 with a goal of $150,000- so get on and vote!!!
