Last summer, the blog community came together in a monumental way to help one influential blogger who had recently been diagnosed with Lymphoma. To say that Susan is one strong woman would be an understatement. Her story is deep, her journey was unthinkable, and yet same came out on top as she continued to inspire others through her pain. In our eyes, that makes Susan a warrior.
When we heard about Susan's story, we knew we wanted to help. It was also at this time last year that Nuts About Granola teamed up with Cancer Warrior, to create a line of granola that would do more than simply satisfy taste buds.
Warrior Crunch was developed with cancer patients in mind. This energy rich granola is full of whole grains, almonds, anti-oxidant rich cherries and dark chocolate.
We first unveiled this unique flavor blend as a continuation to The Great Fundraising Act, organized by Janetha. All proceeds on sales from Warrior Crunch from August 1st to October 31st would be donated directly to Susan and her relief efforts.
Word caught on and we decided to make another debut of this worthy campaign at the 2011 Healthy Living Summit in Philadelphia, providing all attendees with a sampling of Warrior Crunch in their swag bags.
After all was said and done, we are proud to say that with the tremendous help from the blogging community, we raised $500 for Susan.
Susan is an inspiration to us all and now lives cancer-free. Making people happy with granola is what we're all about but changing lives with granola is our dream. All it takes is one cause, one purpose and one delicious bag of baked oats.
