Lindt Easter Giveaway & Gold Bunny Challenge (ends 3/22/13)


Lindt Gold Bunny

Hippity hoppity Easter is on it’s way!

You know Easter is coming when you see the melt-in-your-mouth, delectable Lindt Gold Bunny. Our local grocery store carries them. I’m grateful for that because the Lindt store is no longer there. At least I know I can find my favorite chocolate bunny easily enough.

Lindt Gold Bunny has been a staple in Easter baskets for many years. It’s available in milk, dark and white chocolate (dark chocolate is my favorite). In addition this sweet bunny is available in sizes ranging for adorable 10g minis to a life size 1kg Gold Bunny. Imagine if you received a life size chocolate bunny? Mmmm! That’s a lot of chocolate.

Many people might not be aware that sales of the Lindt Gold Bunny helps to benefit a charity called Autism Speaks. For each bunny that is sold, Lindt donates .10 cents, up to $100,000. Autism Speaks is the world’s largest autism advocacy organization that sponsors autism research, conducts awareness and outreach programs and activities. You can learn more by visiting www.AutismSpeaks.org.

There is another wonderful thing that the Lindt Gold Bunny is doing this year. This year the Lindt Gold Bunny is having a Gold Bunny Challenge on Pinterest.

From March 11 through March 27, Pinterest users are asked to create boards focused on Easter traditions (egg hunts, basket building…). There needs to be at least one pin that features the Lindt Gold Bunny. Once 1,000 or more Pinterest users have participated in the challenge, Lindt will donate an additional $10,000 to Autism Speaks.  Also, all participants will be eligible to win one of ten gift baskets with the essentials for creating a memorable Easter ($100 of Lindt Easter products). Awesome! Since I love Pinterest I’m sure this will be super easy to do. Plus it’s for a great cause.

If you would like to learn more about Lindt, or the Lindt Gold Bunny, please visit www.LindtUSA.com. You can also find the brand on Facebook and Twitter. Don’t forget to check them out on Pinterest too. They have a lot of great ideas on their Pinterest page and pinboards, but be forewarned – there is a lot of chocolate. 🙂
