I was fortunate to receive my virtual basket from my darling friend Maria of Maria's Space. I'd like to give a basket to my friends:
~ Karen at On the Brink de la Locura
~ Alexis at Running Away? I'll Help you Pack
~ Courtney at CooCoo Courtney
~ Krystyn at Really, Are you Serious?
~ Cat at 3 Kids and Us

This is a wonderful thing that Hershey is doing and I wish you all a wonderful Easter!

Until next time..... Lorie

Very worthy cause and who does not like Hershey. Judy tagged me. I also have not forgotten your award, am trying to have my son help me. Because outside of blogging, I am a dummy on computer things. Thank you for coming by my blogs and leaving a comment.

This was just so cute. I love this idea and hope more companies come up with such good causes.
